Campus NightLife (CNL) was created in 2008 to lead the initiative for late night events campus wide to reduce high risk behaviors at UNL. It is comprised of a group of students who volunteer their time to plan, organize, and execute various events throughout the year. All events are free to UNL students, and many have become traditions that students look forward to attending each year. This past fall we put together a survey for CNL participants to look at benefits of attending CNL events as it relates to community building and high risk behavior awareness. Below are a few of the facts and figures we thought you would like to know:
- The top 3 motivations for respondents to attend CNL events are: interest in the event, free stuff at the event, and to be social and meet others.
- 13% of respondents reported that they would have engaged in activities that involved the use and/or consumption of alcohol had they not attended the CNL event.
- 57% of respondents agreed that as a result of attending a CNL event, they can identify social activity alternatives to drinking at UNL.
- 52% of respondents agreed that as a result of attending a CNL event, they connected with other individuals.
- 59% of respondents agreed that as a result of attending a CNL event, they fell like part of the UNL campus community.
- 82% of respondents identified as Women.
