Young Alumni Academy

About the YAA

The NAA created the Young Alumni Academy to bring alumni between the ages of 25-40 back to campus for behind-the-scenes tours of the university's exciting progress. Members of this exclusive group will:

  • Hear from university leaders about the opportunities that come with UNL's status as a Big Ten Conference university
  • Tour premier campus facilities
  • Network and make friends with other successful young alumni
  • Learn more about Nebraska Alumni Association outreach and programs
  • Discover opportunities to be a part of UNL's exciting progress
