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.
