Explore Lincoln: 5 things to do this November

Craig Chandler | University Communication

Welcome to Explore Lincoln, a monthly column that features events, exhibitions and interesting things to do on campus and across Lincoln.

Rock climbing

As the weather gets chillier, there are still plenty of opportunities to stay active indoors at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Nebraska’s Outdoor Adventures Center offers a rock climbing wall for students and paying staff and faculty members. A wide range of classes are available, for both amateurs and climbing veterans. The wall is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
