The Gateway: Run the Press

Thank you all for your support! For those of you who have already purchased tickets and would like a refund, you may request one on Eventbrite.

As the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s official student-run publication, we rely on the support of local businesses, community partners, and sponsors, like you, to ensure our program can continue.

The Gateway is a daily news, entertainment, sports and events website and biweekly newspaper. We provide you with the latest breaking news and videos straight from the UNO campus. In fact, we’ve been the university’s source of news and opinion for students, faculty, and alumni since 1913. To keep our program going each semester we campaign for donations, sponsorship opportunities and advertisement in both our print and digital products.

This year we’re hosting our third annual “Run the Press” 5K fun run at Memorial Park on Saturday, April 11. Pre-register now for an early-bird discount!

Your participation in our 5K (walk OR run!) will give countless college students newsroom experience in the fields of communication, public relations, photography, videography, graphic arts, marketing and journalism in its entirety.

The money raised in this event will go to support The Gateway.
