5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very social and outgoing. Everyone likes to get to know each other and meet new people

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone does their own thing. There isn't really one word that sums up everyone (unless you are in a specific club or class). The only thing I could say that we all share is: spirited.

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!

2 College Senior

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

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most students are average looking with the occasional hot athlete or frat/srat star in class. Students generally don't dress up for class, but girls wear cute/casual clothes when they go out and guys normally wear button downs and khakis. Cargos are a definite no, but you'll see plenty from the Agriculture students. Social life is great. It seems like everyone knows everyone - which can be a pro or a con depending on which way you look at it and what situation you're in.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Either UNL students have really low standards or the guys and girls really are as good-looking as the students claim. Students commonly mention members of the Greek system as the Adonises and Aphrodites of UNL, but there are also plenty of great and interesting mortals out there to spend eternity with.

UNL is not quite as sex-crazed as many other large public universities, but it’s not entirely celibate, either. Campus legend says that if a girl goes through her four years at UNL without hooking up, then one of the school’s beloved columns will topple. As of today, they’re all standing.

Hookups or Relationships?
If you listed to student conversations on campus, you'll hear about both relationships and hookups, so it really just depends on what you are looking for. There are plenty of opportunities for both to happen. Most students do not care either way and just go with the flow of things.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Students can meet someone just about anywhere. Classes are the most common place, in addition to some more unusual places, like striking up a conversation with the person sitting next to you on the bus. and, let's not get forget parties. Plenty of people meet someone at loud parties after a little "liquid courage" is consumed.
Dress Code
The dress code is completely relaxed. Students can be seen wearing anything from the latest fashion to sweats to possibly what they wore the night before. Many students do not seem to care what they wear to class. However, this changes at night, and students seem to get more dressed up for the night ahead of them.
