163 SPEC Kit 361: Outreach and Engagement UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA-LINCOLN LIBRARIES Big Red Ruckus Final Report A digital banner was posted in the Union Plaza. Digital signage was posted in dining halls, library kiosks and the study room screens in the Adele Hall Learning Commons. Announcements were posted in Nebraska Today, Next@Nebraska and the Parents E- Newsletter Additional postcards were handed out at the Big Red Welcome (the Sunday, one week before the Ruckus). To align with the trend towards digital signage, and as a cost saving effort, we did not produce a physical banner for the Union Plaza, table tents for the Union, or posters for the residence halls on campus. Similarly, the Big Red Welcome committee chose not to produce flyers for residence halls listing signature events, choosing to focus on promoting BRW events via the website and NEBRASKA Campus Guides app instead. The reduction of physical signage did not have an adverse effect on Big Red Ruckus attendance numbers. Social Media Posts Facebook Twitter Instagram Event Staff As a cost sharing effort, the Office of Undergraduate Research and First Year Experience provided extra staff to run the welcome tables and assist with the yard games activity. This effort allowed Libraries to reduce the number of student assistants needed to work the event.
