School Counselors’ Blog

Welcome back


by Staci Bell, director of admissions

Welcome back! For you, back to school is all about your students’ goals. And we created this blog to help you in your work. Just like you, we want to connect your students to life-changing opportunities.

Nebraska Wesleyan University is a place that gives your students the same level of personal attention they get from you. That attention is how we connect them with every scholarship possible. It’s how we help them build the kinds of experiences that bring their career goals in reach.

December 1 deadline for NWU’s full-ride scholarship

Yes, Nebraska Wesleyan’s Huge-NWU Scholarship is a “huge” award. But that’s not how you say it. At NWU, “Huge” rhymes with “you bee,” as in Harry and Reba Huge, the philanthropists who created Nebraska Wesleyan University’s top academic scholarship.

The Huge-NWU Scholarship awards academic excellence in all fields. Huge scholars are often defined by high levels of community and school engagement more than by pristine GPAs.

It pays for your students to visit

Each and every student who has Nebraska Wesleyan University on their list should invest the time to tour campus—even if getting to Lincoln requires some travel. That’s because NWU rewards every official campus visitor with a renewable $1,000 Campus Visit Grant. That’s $4,000 over a student’s four years here.

When else in life do you get $4,000 just by showing up?

Students can easily schedule a visit any time online.
