BTN LiveBIG: Husker athletes export service and spirit to global community

Student-athletes can usually look forward to a break from school and sports during the summer months. And while a handful of Huskers recently got a breather from lectures and practices, the work they performed instead was at least as challenging — and rewarding. About 20 student-athletes traveled to the small village of Las Pajas in the Dominican Republic for a few weeks out of last month to take part in the NoFilter program. Operated by Stacey Burling and Jordan Wilson, both Life Skills coordinators at the University of Nebraska’s Athletics Department, NoFilter started last year with a service trip to

But no matter where they go, they’re never far from O-H-I-O. On its website, The Ohio State University compiles photos of students, alums, faculty and fans showing school spirit by doing the famous cheer from Disney World to Düsseldorf.
