Join me on Wednesday for a picnic and Dean’s Welcome! I look forward to sharing with you and introducing you to our student leaders, staff and faculty.

The design and planning professions have arguably never been more important and impactful – and the education you are currently engaged in will prepare you to enter the professions and make a difference in this world!

Congratulations to our faculty and students winning national awards (see below for details)!
Best regards,
Math & Physics Help!

Did you know that both the Math Department and Physics Departments offer free tutoring through their Resource Centers? Leslie and I strongly suggest that you visit these resource rooms if you are feeling a little overwhelmed by Math or Physics. It is much better to start using the lab resources now, than later! 

The Math Resource Center is a free tutoring service and is the primary facility for undergrad students who have questions about any pre-calculus or calculus course offered at UNL. No appointments are necessary! See their website for hours:

The Physics Resource Room offers assistance with introductory Physics courses (including PHYS 151!) during the fall and spring semesters. Graduate students provide tutoring and homework help. Check out their site for their hours:

Please remember, students in the College of Architecture must receive a grade of C or better to pass calculus. And architecture students must receive a grade of C or better to pass physics. (Interior design students using physics for their natural science elective must also pass physics with a C or better.)
On another topic, check out this computer resource link. It contains directions for things like installing printers, connecting to the server etc

On Sunday, September 10th from 6:30-9:30 pm, the Gateway Mall JC Penney store will open their doors exclusively for UNL students and provide them deep discounts on career and professional attire. When students check in to the event (with their NUID), they will receive a special coupon for the evening for 40% savings. The coupon can be used on regular priced and sale items, which can result in an overall savings of up to 70% off professional attire.

However, there are three students who have taken a leap of faith and are spend the 2017-18 academic year working in some of the best firms across the country. The program has soft launched a year-long paid internship between the 3rd and 4th years where students have the opportunity to work in professional firms to learn first hand about professional practice and gain a year of work experience prior to graduation.
