    "I have really developed my own voice and style of leading -
         both in and out of the classroom - because of all the
     opportunities available to me at UNL. That has by far been
                      the most rewarding for me."

    "I would love to…maybe try something completely different like
        Teach for America or the Peace Corps…but who knows? In
             life you end up meeting people who lead you down an
               entirely different path, so I'm kind of expecting that to
                     happen." - Megan Berg – Current History Major

                     "Digital archiving technology is becoming increasingly
                   important in a lot of history departments," he said. "We are
                  moving away from dated notion that historians spend hours
                  in dusty archives looking at books; we’re taking research to
                    the modern age, using the technology we have to make
                  history more accessible." - Michael Dozler BA 2008 Political
