Dr. Peter N. Smits, the vice president for University Advancement at California State University, Fresno, was impressed by what he saw on a trip to Lincoln, Neb., to watch the Bulldogs play the Nebraska Cornhuskers in football.

There was a substantial contingent of Fresno State-supporting Red Wave fans, but the opponents’ stalwarts got Smits thinking about lessons to be learned in Lincoln.

Smits’ observations were published Friday, Sept. 16, in The Fresno Bee http://www.fresnobee.com/2011/09/15/2540014/peter-smits-lessons-we-can-learn.html.
