Future Huskers

It’s never too early to instill Husker pride in a child. Members, share your Nebraska legacy with the children in your life by enrolling them in our Future Huskers program, a benefit of membership with the Nebraska Alumni Assocoation. Your kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews will love receiving Husker-themed gifts each fall and a special greeting on their birthday. When they near the end of their high school years, we’ll share their information with the Office of Admissions, so your Future Husker will be contacted by UNL when it’s time to consider colleges.  


Your Future Husker will receive a new, age-appropriate themed gift each August. Please note: gifts are not retroactive.

  • Magnet Picture Frame – Upon registration, you and your loved one will receive a magnetic photo frame so you can always keep a current picture on the refrigerator.
  • Corn Cob Teething Ring – A perfect game day (or any day) accessory for mini Husker fans. 
  • Archie Stuffed Animal – Tiny tots will enjoy a wooly mammoth toy honoring Archie, our resident mammoth who makes his home at the University of Nebraska State Museum in Morrill Hall. 
  • Giant Kazoo – Toddlers will love humming along to their favorite Husker song, “There is No Place like Nebraska,” with their new kazoo. 
  • Coloring Tote – Young children will love customizing their colorable tote and carrying around their favorite books and toys.
  • Jump Rope – Grab your tennis shoes, go outside and play! Daily exercise is important for growing kids and college students alike.  
  • Lunch Bag – Kids will start school in style with their Future Husker lunch bag. 
  • Frisbee – Children will love getting some fresh air as they toss their squishy Husker frisbee back-and-forth. 
  • Puzzle – What iconic UNL structure is pictured in this puzzle? Hint: the chant “Go Big Red!” booms from inside of this building.
  • Calculator – Math homework will be way more fun with a cool, flexible gel calculator. 
  • Touch Watch – Students will love showing their futuristic touch watch off to their friends at school.
  • Collapsible Water Bottle – This convenient water bottle is ideal for young athletes to bring to sporting events and outdoor activities. 
  • Magnetic Chalkboard – The magnetic chalkboard gift will help kids keep to-do lists or leave messages for their best friends. 
  • Wrist Flash Drive – Teenagers will love keeping their favorite music, photos and class projects with them at all times. The flash drive also comes pre-loaded with information about UNL and our Student Alumni Association. 
  • Tech Tattoos – Our tech tattoos let middle school students display their Husker pride on all of their electronic devices. 
  • Earbuds and Charger – Teens can stay tuned-in and charged-up wherever they go with the Husker earbuds and charger set. 
  • Lanyard Key Chain – Teenagers will never lose their keys or student IDs, thanks to the Big Red lanyard they’ll receive.  
  • Birthday Cards – Our Future Huskers will also receive a special greeting from us during their birthday month.

Once you've enrolled your child or grandchild (or niece or nephew), remember to send photos of them with their gifts (jpeg format) to Hanna Hoffman (hhoffman@huskeralum.org).
