UNL will join Lincoln/Lancaster County Emergency Management in testing all tornado-warning systems on the first Wednesday of each month at 10:15 a.m. to assure the systems are working and to remind the campus community to be at all times aware of shelters and exit routes.
The test will end within 5 minutes. Tests will not be conducted when there is a threat of severe weather or if the outdoor temperature is below freezing. UNL's Tornado Warning Policy can be found at http://bf.unl.edu/policies/police/TornadoWarning.shtml
Learn about setting up online and other types of classes, instruction modes, wait lists, curriculum processes, cycle sheets, grading classifications, variable credit, class searches, and much more. Keith Dawson, Assistant Director of Registration Services, will present about many of these issues.

The action is set in 1959 on a sun-dappled terrace of an old soldier's home somewhere in France. Here three dotty old soldiers, veterans of World War I, engage in verbal skirmishes, plan counter attacks and dream of impossible escape.
