A man in a gray T-shirt and blue ball cap sported a name tag that said "M. Damon" and created a stir as he toured the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus yesterday. It was Oscar winning movie actor Matt Damon, who first gained movie fame as a troubled math genius working as a janitor at the MIT.
Damon told well-wishers that he was in Lincoln to attend New Student Enrollment Day with his nephew, who'd enrolled as a freshman and will start classes there in the coming fall semester. UNL spokesman Steve Smith says Damon's participation in new student enrollment came as quite a surprise. Damon says he "basically bought out" the University Bookstore while stocking up on Nebraska Cornhusker gear for his children.
