Big Red (and ‘Lil Red) descended on Omaha’s Qwest Center February 8th to inform the public about UNL’s academic programs and to recruit future students. Five TCD students joined Senior Lecturer Carol Easley to visit with high school students, parents, and teachers from the Omaha metro area. Graduate students Tacia Booton and Karlin Warner, and undergraduates Kathryn Alms, Michelle Higgins, and Madison Simmons did a stellar job promoting the caliber and quality of TCD, and brought a bit of the department to the BRRS crowd. The students demonstrated draping techniques, exhibited portfolios and sketchbooks, encouraged participation in “crime scene” fiber identification, and helped participants distinguish between “real vs. fake” merchandise. Events such as this help us to broaden our audience and to bring to the Nebraska population-at-large insights into some of what goes on here in the College of Education and Human Sciences.
