The University of Nebraska–Lincoln community and public are being asked to be aware of the event, which will effectively shut down all access to a 16-square-block area around the two residence hall towers from 6 a.m. to noon.

The event will include a public viewing area atop the 19th and Vine streets parking garage as well as live coverage online and via Facebook.
