The life of a college student can be a juggling act. From keeping up with homework, studying for exams and working a job, among other responsibilities, students can become overwhelmed. They might need somewhere to just relax, enjoy friendly company and delve into a fun hobby.
For some at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, that hobby is an actual juggling act.
Every Sunday and Wednesday evening, jugglers gather on the Nebraska Union Green Space, north of the Nebraska Union, to toss pins as part of the UNL Juggling Club.
Megan Elbel, a sophomore psychology major and treasurer of the club, joined last year with her friend Will Brunner, who is now the club’s president.
“I wanted to do something fun with my afternoons,” Elbel said. “I was looking for a group to join, and Will found the juggling club. It seemed like a good place to go to make a new skill and meet some new friends, and it really was.”
