Glow Big Red

In celebration of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s 150th year, we’re calling all Huskers to Glow Big Red on February 14. What’s Glow Big Red? It’s a day when the worldwide UNL community shows up and shows out. The color of the day is red, so make sure that wherever you are you light it, fly it, wear it and give it in honor of your university. 

Show how you glow through February 14th and you’ll be entered to win!

Here’s how to participate:

Step 1: Snap a photo of you showing off your Husker pride for Glow Big Red.

Step 2: Post it on Twitter or Instagram with #GlowBigRed — or email your pic to social@unl.edu.

Win the following:

  • Helicopter ride around the downtown Lincoln area to see the building glowing red (1 guest included)
  • Nebraska sweatshirt
  • Large Nebraska Flag
  • Nebraska ‘N’ light up sign

Red burns brighter. Here are the buildings that will be glowing red for #GlowBigRed.
