“The Student Center is the ‘living room’ of the campus, a gathering place for the campus community and an integral part of UNO’s educational environment which augments the educational experience. The Student Center is more than just a facility; it is made up of operations, services and programs that enhance the quality of college life and help to retain students at the university. It is also a laboratory for experiential and developmental learning – providing opportunities for students to learn and practice leadership and striving to foster an appreciation for diversity, harmony and school spirit.”
