The Presidential Search is over!

As President Ben Allen finishes his last year here at UNI, students, faculty, and alumni have been very eager to hear who will become his predecessor. The announcement on Thursday (2/7) made many panthers happy and excited! We are thrilled to welcome Dr. William Ruud to UNI! We are very confident that he will do an excellent job in keeping the university a great place for students, staff, and panther lovers alike!

Here’s our list of ideas Dr. Ruud could add to UNI:

  • Outdoor swimming pool in Lawther field (complete with a waterslide starting from the top of the Campanile)
  • A free ice cream stand
  • Segways and golf carts (for panthers to get around campus)
  • Mandatory Catnaps every afternoon from 1 to 2


Go Panthers,
