Milo Bail Student Center

The best overview of the Student Center is its mission statement, which states:

“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.”

The director of the Milo Bail Student Center is responsible for the regulation of a variety of policies on campus. These policies include Communication and Solicitation, Promotional Material and Distribution, Campus Alcohol Policy, Use of Facilities, and various campus food policies. Copies of these policies are available at
