Nebraska was one of the first collegiate athletic programs to invest in life skills education and training for its student-athletes. Nationally recognized as having one of the most comprehensive life skills programs in the country, we are committed to providing the necessary resources and education to prepare our student-athletes for both career and personal success beyond college.
Our knowledgeable compliance staff can answer any questions you have about the recruiting process, including details on the scholarships we provide, which are based on the full cost of attendance. The staff will also offer education about other financial aid and incentive programs available to Husker student-athletes.
This part is for the parents, as our communications staff will cover the ways they will keep you in touch with your daughter’s career. Nebraska is one of less than a dozen softball programs that feature a radio broadcast of every game - home or away - and television coverage of Big Ten softball has steadily increased every season.
Graduation is our No. 1 goal, which is why Nebraska is the national leader in providing academic guidance and support for all of our student-athletes. Nebraska has produced more Academic All-Americans than any other college or university in the country, while the Husker Softball team has produced more Academic All-Americans than any other softball program.

|NEBRASKA FOOTBALL GAME|
As your visit nears its end, it’s time for the biggest and loudest reminder of the excitement surrounding Nebraska’s student-athlete experience. You will be a part of an NCAA record, as Memorial Stadium has been sold out every game since 1962, the longest sellout streak in college football history.
