The Washington Cornhuskers, a chapter within the Nebraska Alumni Association, is a non-profit corporation registered in Washington State to foster fraternal and social interests and concerns of alumni of the University of Nebraska and Nebraskans living in the Pacific Northwest.

The chapter was founded to promote recruitment of students for the university, provide scholarships for students of chapter members and other students residing in Washington, and serve as a means of providing fellowship for Nebraskans and friends of Nebraska in the Northwest. We are bound by a common “thread,” our Nebraska heritage.

Club members include graduates of the University of Nebraska, former Nebraskans and friends of Nebraska.


To serve and enrich the University of Nebraska, its alumni and its friends by attracting and retaining them through involvement with the Alumni Association.
