Meghin Williams is a long way from home, to say the least. The broadcast journalism major is in her fifth year at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, almost 1,500 miles away from her home town of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. But the distance is nothing compared to the places she’s been through her life.

“I’ve been all over. I’ve traveled to Sweeden, Norway and Denmark for basketball,” she said.

In fact, Williams first decided to come to Nebraska to play basketball for the Huskers. She received a full-ride scholarship for her entire career at UNL. This year, though, marks her first year not playing for the team.

“It’s my first time being just a student,” Williams said. “It’s different.”

Once she graduates in May, the 22-year old hopes to go into entertainment hosting. But for now, she hopes to finish school strong and stay as close to her family as the distance between them allows.
