5 College Junior

Majors: It's the best for everything

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I like the city of Lincoln, but people don't leave the Haymarket very often. I wish there was shopping more conveniently located, since the mall is 15 mins away.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I really wish there was food in the library, besides vending machines. Some students spend entire days there, and it's inconvenient to leave and unhealthy to just eat food from vending machines.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking garage passes are extremely expensive. I think that if you buy a parking garage pass, you should be allowed to use all of the on-campus parking, including commuter lots, at any time of the day.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The busses are usually on time and convenient. I wish biking was more encouraged.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletic facilities are phenomenal for athletes, and ridiculously subpar for non-athletes.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Computer availability and printing is fine, but a lot of the technology in classrooms is outdated.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Health Center is a joke. I asked for Azo, the pain medication for a UTI, and the pharmacist said to drink cranberry juice instead. Cranberry juice doesn't help with pain.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: When students can barely walk on the sidewalks because there's a snowstorm, school should be cancelled.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had an internship, but it seems like once I start looking I will have opportunities.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my majors, Anthropology and History. I have a lot of freedom in my scheduling and the classes are all conveniently located on city campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I wish that the dorms were more central to campus, the only one that's centrally located is Selleck.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: A lot of students drink, but there isn't peer pressure to do so.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I really wish there were more vegetarian options.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Lincoln is getting better as far as diversity goes, but we don't have as much opportunity as other schools do to be accepting since Nebraska is mostly white.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I feel like I should have received more in scholarships than I did.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I love being Greek. It doesn't matter which letters you wear, Greeks are very friendly to one another as well as the non-Greeks on campus. Greek students tend to be a lot more involved on campus than non-Greeks, and I've noticed that we also hold more leadership positions.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't party, so I have no idea.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not involved with Greek life at all.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Students are involved in a variety of varsity and intramural sports. There is something for everyone of every athletic ability. Students are very spirited at varsity games.

College Freshman

Transportation: I have a car, so I have never had to take public transportation.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never felt the least bit unsafe on campus, even walking back to my dorm alone at 2 in the morning.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a great international community on campus.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Neihardt has a very good community- everybody is friendly and it is easy to make friends. Living on campus makes it easy to participate in various campus activities.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
