NICF Week for Students Slated for July 31-Aug. 4

Hundreds of prospective college students will descend on the campuses of the state's private colleges as part of Nebraska Independent College Week.  Earlier this year, Gov. Dave Heineman officially proclaimed July 31-August 4, 2006 as Nebraska Independent College Week and urged all high school students and their parents to personally visit the participating institutions this week to discover for themselves the quality of educational opportunities offered and the affordability of attending an independent college in Nebraska.

The private colleges and universities that are members of the Nebraska Independent College Foundation (NICF) have organized special visit days for high school students.  Participating institutions include Bellevue University (Bellevue), College of Saint Mary (Omaha), Concordia University (Seward), Dana College (Blair), Doane College (Crete), Grace University (Omaha), Hastings College (Hastings), Midland Lutheran College (Fremont), Nebraska Wesleyan University (Lincoln), Union College (Lincoln) and York College (York).

During Nebraska Independent College Week, these 11 colleges and universities will waive application fees for students who visit their campuses.  Students are encouraged to visit as many campuses as possible.  Two orientation sessions will be held daily during the week on all 11 campuses-one at 9:00 a.m. and a second at 1:30 p.m.  At the campus visits, students will learn about the institutions' varied academic, athletic and organizational offerings.  Campus tours and financial aid sessions will be available at all institutions.

For more information about Nebraska Independent College Week, contact any of the 11 NICF member colleges.  NICF's website can be accessed by going to, then entering the access code 9999.
