The university will celebrate Black History Month in February with a movie series beginning at 6 p.m. each Tuesday. The schedule includes:

Cross-country skiing


With more snowy days ahead this winter, Huskers and members of the Lincoln community can still get outside and be active through the Outdoor Adventures Center’s winter gear rentals.

The center offers rentals on skis, ski poles and boots. Renting all three is $10 a day for Campus Rec members and $15 for the general public.

Wilderness Park and Pioneer’s Park are two popular locations for cross-country skiing in Lincoln.
