By Nicole Hall
Vivian Nichols recalls when she
attended the University ofNebraska

second of two professors joined the pro
gram her junior year.
Mabel Lee, for which Mabel Lee
Hall was named, instructed Nichols.
The university didn’t have a swimming
pool, and the program’s facilities con
sisted of a gym floor and a few class
“(The campus) has changed radical
ly. I can’t believe all the new buildings
and closed roads,” said Nichols, 98,
who graduated in 1924.
Last weekend, the women’s physical
education program in the Teacher’s
College celebrated its 100th anniver
sary. The program began in 1898.
The department was one of the first
in the country to offer a professional
preparation program for women in
physical education, said Bill Murphy,
professor and chairman of the depart
ment ofhealth and human performance.
That department encompasses the
physical education program.
The centennial was marked with an
informational reception for alumni, an
exhibit of new and old technology used
in physical education, and an evening
An exhibit at the reception dis
played early 20th-century physical edu
cation equipment and women’s sporting

sense of history?’ said Sharon Evans,
associate professor ofheahh and human

and five graduated in the 1930s.

improve the support and education of

Aliant Communications President
Frank Hilsabeck agreed.
“People need to understand what
the entire athletic department means
to the state of Nebraska,” Hilsabeck
said. “I think the skyboxes are a won

NU Associate Athletic Director
Joe Selig said the 42 skyboxes are a
part of the Memorial Stadium
Improvement Project which includes
a $36.3 million addition to the west
stadium and a new media facility.
The NU Board of Regents
approved the skybox project in July of
University officials said Skybox
construction is on schedule for com
pletion by the Huskers’ home opener
Sept. 11 against California.
Selig said donors had the option
between 10 Premier Circle skyboxes,
that required a one-time contribution
of $2 million for a 25-year contract, or
29 Cornerstone skyboxes, that
required a 10-year annual payment of
Three skyboxes are reserved for
university officials - one for the UNL
chancellor’s office, one for the NU
athletic director, and one for the NU
Foundation and the NU president’s
office to share, he said.
Premier Circle members will
receive six personalized season game
day parking stalls, eight invitations to
an annual recognition dinner, an
annual trip for two on the team air
plane to one of the university ’s away
football games and highest priority
consideration for any intercollegiate
NU Athletic Department sporting
event in which a priority system is
used. / .
Cornerstone members receive two
personalized season parking stalls
and four season parking passes, two
invitations to an annual recognition
dinner, an annual trip for two to one of
die university’s away football games
and priority consideration for away
game and bowl game tickets.
Selig said each skybox suite has
about 700 square feet and comes with
28 season tickets, as well as other
amenities including security, elevator
access, closed-circuit television, a pri
vate restroom, post-game cleaning
and heating and air conditioning.
Scott Lewis, UNL associate vice
chancellor for business and finance,
said the university did not use student
fees or state tax revenue to pay for the
The leasing of 10 skyboxes at $2
million each provided $20 million of
donations up front, he said.
In July 1997, the university issued
$17.4 million in revenue bonds to
cover the remaining cost The leasing
of the remaining 29 skyboxes and the
club seats would repay the bonds, he
Lewis said additional income
from the skyboxes would be used for
future athletic department projects,
including grass football practice
fields and a new baseball complex.
