The Ultimate Husker Experience
A student’s time at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is one of the
most memorable, fun and defining stages of life. And, we want to help
students make the most of it.
Students who join Huskers Forever automatically become members of
Scarlet Guard, the student alumni association, and life members of the
NAA upon graduation. They will forge unforgettable memories and lasting
friendships and establish a lifelong connection with the university.
Huskers Forever members become automatic members of Scarlet Guard, the student alumni association. Scarlet Guard helps students achieve the fullest Husker experience by exploring campus traditions featured in the Cornhusker compass, the official UNL traditions guidebook. As students complete the traditions checklist, they will experience UNL’s one-of-a-kind rituals and get closer to achieving the status of Official Tradition Keepers.
Campus Social Events
Exclusive social events, including the Meet and Greet and the Homecoming pep rally, will give students behind-the-scenes access to campus and offer a chance to de-stress and make friends with peers.
Alumni Connections & Professional Development
Huskers Forever members will have exclusive access to professional development events and the NAA’s network of nearly 25,000 alumni members. They’ll have the ability to connect with and learn from our successful alumni from around the country and world and gain insight and tips about interviewing, securing internships and ultimately finding jobs.
A Lifelong Husker Connection
Upon graduation, Huskers Forever members will become life members of the alumni association. They will receive their cap and gown as a gift for Commencement, and we’ll help them celebrate at our Gradfest and ConGRADuation parties.
