From the Archives of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Nebraska U is a collaborative effort to explore, through primary source research projects and multimedia, the history of Nebraska's oldest University. The name, Nebraska U, comes from the University's popular and often-heard song "Dear Old Nebraska U (No Place Like Nebraska)." The full lyrics are:

There is no place like Nebraska
Dear old Nebraska U.
Where the girls are the fairest,
The boys are the squarest,
Of any old school that I knew.

There is no place like Nebraska,
Where they're all true blue.
We'll all stick together,
In all kinds of weather,
For Dear old Nebraska U!

To hear a recording of this song—the "touchdown version" no less—played by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Marching Band, go to the University Bands "Cornhusker Fight Songs" site.

Nebraska U is a work in progress, so keep checking back to see our new content.
