KEARNEY – July 1 marks a milestone for University of Nebraska at Kearney, and faculty, staff and alumni are ready to celebrate.
The community is welcome to gather with UNK at 9 a.m. July 1 under the Peterson-Yanney Bell Tower for a casual celebration breakfast noting the 25th anniversary of Kearney State College becoming University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Chancellor Doug Kristensen and special guests will greet guests and reflect on the occasion. A similar celebration at the same location on July 1, 1991, marked the official transition from KSC to UNK.
The celebration is free and open to the public. The event will last less than an hour.
The event marks an entire year of celebration for UNK. A website featuring the previous events, photos and videos from those occasions, and a place to leave comments and memories, is online at unk.edu/year-of-celebration
