4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: it is a very safe campus

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are a lot of study options and areas. The workload depends what you are majoring in, the more classes, the more work. The registration process was easy

3 College Sophomore

Majors: They didn't have the major I wanted so I took the path closest to it.

College Sophomore

Majors: Haven't gotten that far yet.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It is kind of stressful to think about money but the financial aid usually works out

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Good class size, professors are funny, lots of course options, some are difficult, some are easy

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Other than the super cold winters, everything is really great! There some great professors, but sometimes you can you get some bad ones. Overall pretty well.

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't become involved in any of these aspects yet, but I also haven't sought them out either!

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in a not very traditional dorm and I don;t think my opinion is very valid here

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very friendly and really keeps up the midwestern reputation of being really nice! You can usually talk to anyone and they will be super nice and helpful!

College Sophomore

Majors: I have never had an internship

College Sophomore

Majors: I havn't had an internship at the University, however many people I know have said they are absolutely wonderful and say they work really well. The pay isn't too bad but again, it is an internship so you can't expect to make too much. I am hoping to get one.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The school encourages the students to get a minor in broadcasting just so they can better themselves and be more marketable, however I am finding a few problems when it comes to scheduling my classes.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are a few road bumps but definitely could be worse. I don't think it's the colleges fault at all though, it seemed to be mostly federal restrictions.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Nothing to special. I lived in the Village, me and my friends got in through a lottery. The living room is okay, it comes with w couch and a chair. The worst thing was how small the individual rooms are. Also the people who reside here aren't very social. Living there my whole junior year I only met about two people, everybody usually keeps to themselves.

2 College Senior

Guys & Girls: A lot of them look good but hard to get unless you play football.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus but I have visited some of my friend's places that are off campus. The apartments are your typical apartments, nothing special.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I've only ever lived on campus and don't have much experience with off-campus housing.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The only problems we ever see is people being stupid when going out or having people over. Our campus police are very understanding and seem to be pretty lenient on almost every subject as long as you respect their position and don't do anything too terrible.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: UNL is an amazing school. There are so many resources to help you succeed and the quality of education is outstanding. Our programs are excellent thanks to the determined faculty/staff here, and there are so many people around you to encourage your progress.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: As an advertising/public relations major, I have found that I could not have picked a better school for my education in the subject. The College of Journalism and Mass Communications (where the major is housed) is one of the best in the country and is truly a steal price-wise. There are endless, endless, endless opportunities for involvement, jobs, internships, and the like. Signs are posted everywhere to advertise this and faculty/staff are always willing and ready to help you find some.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: UNL is not very diverse, that can be said for sure. And we do struggle with issues of ethnic/racial prejudice due to the conservative nature of our state, but at the same time have facilities and programs, organizations and outstanding members of the community who are willing to step up for what is right, represent our school well, and treat everyone with respect. There is truly a place for everyone on campus - even if it is small one.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: As long as you work hard and genuinely care about your major, you're almost positive to get in. UNL offers a great Big Ten education for a great, under-appreciated price. It's a true value and the application process is easy...I'd suggest everyone apply as soon as possible, too.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I. Love. My. College. The College of Journalism and Mass Communications at UNL is one of the top in the country and provides COUNTLESS opportunities for internships, jobs, projects, etc. You can gain experience anywhere and the faculty and staff are readily available to help, very qualified (sometimes even over-qualified), and extremely bright. The workload is a perfect balance between challenging and not overwhelming. I would highly, highly suggest looking into CoJMC if going to Nebraska.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's great...if you live in Abel/Sandoz or HSS. Selleck and CPN both have smaller dorms and are a lot older. Your best option is to shoot for the first two or Knoll/University Suites. As pricey as the latter is, it's 100% worth it. Apartment style living is great, but you don't get to meet as many people on your floor as you would in Abel or HSS.

Although it has its blemishes, most students just can’t say enough about the University of Nebraska. They love the atmosphere, they love the activities, and, most of all, they love the people they have met here. Students here believe that almost any college can provide a great experience if you come to school with the right attitude and work ethic, and they agree that UNL is no different.

All in all, it is quite common for prospective students to put UNL on the back burner and place the more glamorous private schools first on their agendas. But, students eventually learn that Nebraska’s academics and culture are almost the same as any other place. When it comes to good people and high spirits, there’s really no other place like it.
