Wednesday, April 3, 2024 Red Memorial is May 3

During the evening on May 3, 2024, Broyhill Fountain in the Nebraska Union Memorial Plaza will be illuminated red after the annual Red Memorial.

The Red Memorial, an annual University of Nebraska–Lincoln remembrance for the lives of students who died during the current academic year, will take place from 4 to 5 p.m. May 3, 2024.

Four students will be honored during the memorial, which is to be in the Nebraska Union Platte River Room. It is free and open to the public.

The ceremony will include brief remarks from Dr. Dee Dee Anderson, vice chancellor for student affairs; individual recognition of the students lost this year; a moment of reflection led by a member of the Association of Campus Religious Workers; and music by an ensemble from the Hixon-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts.

Light refreshments will be provided after the formal program.

Later in the evening, Broyhill Fountain in the Nebraska Union Memorial Plaza is to be illuminated red in memory of the students.

Red Memorial began in 2015 at the request of deceased student Keaton Klein’s family, who had a long-standing wish to turn the fountains red and the lighting began to honor his memory.
