The Red Memorial, an annual University of Nebraska–Lincoln remembrance for the lives of students, faculty, staff and alumni who died during the current academic year, will take place April 8.
Now in its sixth year, the memorial is held at Broyhill Fountain on the Nebraska Union Memorial Plaza. During the evening, the fountain will be lit red to remember and celebrate the lives of Huskers who passed away during the academic year.
Red Memorial began in 2015 at the request of deceased student Keaton Klein’s family. Klein had a long-standing dream to turn the fountains red and the lighting began to honor his memory.
While no formal program will take place, members of the campus community are encouraged to stop by the fountain to acknowledge the memory of friends and colleagues.
