3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Parking is so strict. Be careful.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Can't get into sports cause the teams suck.

3 College Freshman

Academics: A lot of gen eds like any other school that don't apply to your future. Also, NSE advisors are a joke. Find a real advisor or current student to help you.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Always something going on if you know the right people. You can't spell drunk without unk.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Lower cost, more space, still the same problems with room mates.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a lot of students from other nations still learning English. It can make class difficult at times.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: There is no cheap way to get to and from Nebraska and Florida.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I've been on my own for two years, but the government still says I'm a dependent. Getting aid is difficult, even through ROTC and the Nebraska National Guard.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Small town, still growing. Not much to do.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I'm a big guy. It's not often that I don't feel safe.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I have had excellent professors, and then those that should rethink their profession. I guess that could be said of any school.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I noticed it more at high school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are old. You will be charge a fine at some time during your stay. Very few students check out at the end of the year without damage charges. Even if the damage was there at move in.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have no comment, or review. This is not a group I have much interaction with.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: My only concern is walking by myself at night and if I have to do that I usually call someone on the phone while I walk. Campus seems very safe. Police are visible but don't get in your business without probable cause.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I am studying elementary education and know UNK offers a great education program. I work with a great advisor to ensure my course load isn't overwhelming and I can focus on my studies and my job which I have to maintain to pay for living expenses.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: UNK is located in the middle of Nebraska with a great option for me to travel one way to go home and the other way to go to Lincoln. We don't have a lot but we aren't stuck in the middle of nowhere. It's perfect.

Computers: There are computers available but having your own is way more convenient. It is easy to print but does cost. Not a large amount but having your own printer would be a nice option.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UNK has been perfect for me with the convenience to my family home and I would choose it again and recommend it to my friends. Their staff is so helpful and caring and the community is so supportive to the college kids.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office is amazing and have been very helpful. I am still dealing with financial aid and will continue to as I cannot afford college without it. I am so grateful for all I have received.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's Nebraska, we can experience all four seasons in a single day. Wind and rain or snow can make the long walk across campus challenging but again ... it's Nebraska and I am used to it.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I didn't choose to join a sorority first semester but am changing my mind this semester and joining a sorority. The non-Greeks don't discriminate against the Greeks or visa versa but Greek life is a major thing on campus.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I have my own car and campus is pretty conveniently situated so we walk most places.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The police are there to enforce the rules and protect the student body. I have never had a formal encounter with them but when I have needed them for directions or just in passing they seem cool. Must be like most adults, respectful if the students are respectful to them.
