The College of Architecture’s Responsible Design Learning Community learns about and serves Red Cloud, Nebraska. Fifteen students arrived via vans to the historic Red Cloud community around 6 pm on Friday evening, November 4th. The group was comprised of first-year architecture, interior design and landscape architecture students. All came prepared to work and prepared to learn.

Game Day Reminder

For those of you not familiar with the university's pregame planning, football game days provide challenges in the security of buildings used for academic, research and business operations on City Campus. Many fans would like to use university facilities for breaks, restrooms or sightseeing.  Some even see the possibility of accessing our buildings as an opportunity to steal computers, etc. Common practice is that all buildings near the stadium are locked about three to five hours before kickoff. We ask your help in keeping the buildings on City Campus, particularly those close to Memorial Stadium or along the main walkways to the stadium, locked and secured. Please avoid using the building in the hours before kickoff and help us keep unauthorized people out. Thank you,  

Owen Yardley
