Hagel graduated from UNO in 1971 with a bachelor's degree in history.
The former Nebraska Senator visited campus in October where he hosted a town hall about campaigning, current issues and his successful 1996 senate campaign. The town hall was held in conjunction with the Criss Library's exhibit “Campaign 1996: Hagel for Senate,” featuring artifacts from the U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel Archives. The exhibit closed in November but the library is the permanent home for the archives.
Hagel, a Vietnam veteran, dedicated the new MaV USO offices on the same visit.
