University of Nebraska to Advertise on Trailers
The Associated Press reported on October 28 that the University of Nebraska is placing ads onto the sides of five semitrailers hauling food and furniture in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
The trailers are owned by Crete Carrier Corp., which is not charging the university for the ads. Crete Chairman Duane Acklie is a 1955 graduate of the University of Nebraska College of Law and former chairman of American Trucking Associations.
Two of the trucks will roll between Omaha, Neb., and Kansas City. The other three will drive around the lower 48 states, Canada and Mexico, AP said.
The university believes the ads will help attract more out-of-state students, AP reported
