University of Nebraska-Lincoln Bucket List

My little brother, Garin just graduated high school.  I’m particularly pleased with his college plans as he will be doing his undergraduate in Electrical Engineering at my very own Alma Mater, UNL.  Granted, his academic ambitions reach further than mine did—his end goal is biomedical engineering.  As part of his graduation gift, Tara and I compiled a UNL bucket list to keep the kid busy for four years.  Since he’s already received his gift, I’m repurposing the list as a blog post.  Hope you’re OK with that, Garin.

  1. The parkouring and coal trains bring back some memories. Maybe visit the nest on the way back from O Street? Hahaha
