Spread the Word!

There is no place like Nebraska and there is no better time to become a Husker! The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is waiving the undergraduate admissions application fee for Nebraskans until Oct. 18 as part of an effort to expand access and encourage college-going among students and families. This year, we know that it may be difficult for students to take the ACT or SAT because of public health concerns. To support students, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is test-optional for both university admission and scholarships. Apply for FREE at go.unl.edu/apply-now by selecting “fee waiver” and entering the code “NUforNE” on the website.

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
We are just passing the mid-semester mark this week and the fall season is starting to show signs of change. I have the feeling that I blinked a few too many times this semester and a lot has flown by me. Everyone is working very hard to overcome the online distance between us, but the novelty of our situation has long ago lost its luster. Conceptually, this new online condition has collapsed space and time, but the reality of the expressionless faces staring back at me on my Zoom screen tell me that the level of engagement is far less than the in-person experience. The Nebraska landscape is one of subtlety, so I should have already attuned myself to reading much from a little, but then I can see the richness of this environment by immersing myself in it on my weekend walks. This may read like a melancholy reflection on the current state of affairs facing the education community, but I don’t mean it to be the case.

INTERIOR DESIGN
This week I am eager to share work from Kendra Ordia’s third-year studio, IDES 311-Interior Design Studio III.
