The Omaha World-Herald chose two students from the UNL College of Journalism and Mass Communications to work as reporting fellows at the newspaper for fall 2020. Will Bauer of Hawley, MN is this year’s Husker and Sports fellow, and Nick McConnell of Lincoln is the Breaking News fellow.
While the university has made changes to keep the campus community safe during classes this fall, clubs and other student organizations have created their own policies to allow safe socializing for students. One student club, the UNL Poker Club, has been developing and making plans in order to meet their club’s goals while also keeping its members safe.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s newest Recognized Student Organization (RSO) is called The Circle. A group of students in the College of Journalism and Mass Communications (CoJMC) founded the club because they saw the need for raw and real conversations across UNL’s campus.
Associate Professors Valerie Jones and Bryan Wang were selected to join the inaugural class or the Nebraska Governance and Technology Center Faculty Fellows Program.
