Maverick Monument

Something monumental is coming to the University of Nebraska at Omaha campus to commemorate the UNO Alumni Association’s 100th anniversary!

For years, UNO students have dreamed of having a mascot statue as a rallying point on campus. In its 100th year, the Alumni Association is making that dream a reality, bringing to campus the “Maverick Monument” — an 8-foot-high, 1,500-pound bronze bull symbolizing the determination, pride and success of UNO students and alumni and the opportunities before them.

Created by nationally renowned artist Jocelyn Russell, the monument will be installed amid a new plaza on the UNO campus after it is “unleashed” with a public dedication in August 2014.

YOU can be part of this timeless campus attraction. Gifts of $500 or more to the UNO Annual Fund or to the 100th Anniversary Fund will be recognized as follows:

$500 — Name engraved on Sioux Quartzite honor wall
$1,000 — Premium name placement on honor wall
$5,000 — Name on Maverick Monument bronze plaque
$10,000 — Premium name on bronze plaque and a personal scale model of Maverick Monument
