Back when I was deciding when to do my undergraduate work, UNO was barely listed in any of the college reference books. Well, they are starting to make a name for themselves, but I don’t think this is what they had in mind. Apparently, in a recent study, UNO ranked as the 11th fattest university.
Whether or not the stat is true, what’s annoying is having UNL’s student paper point it out, whereas UNO’s Gateway has nothing to say. It’s like someone else pointing and laughing at the fat kid – er – university while they just sit there and take it. I’d like to see the Gateway come out with a piece showcasing people staying fit at UNO; even if the stat has merit, this piece might show people how to balance physical health with the pursuit of intellectual greatness.
