University of Nebraska-Lincoln - Has elegantly handled a named school on their homepage by making the name small enough to read but elegant enough to give credit to the person. This makes the list scannable while still giving credit where credit is due,...

University of California - Uses a unique way to list their top links, what I am assuming are their most popular pages. It doesnt just list them but uses a graph to show their relative popularity.
