3 College Junior

Scholarships: I received the Chancellors scholarship which recently was revoked because I failed my programming course (Which I was surprisingly terrible at). I am retaking the course to fix my GPA but as far as I know I won't be getting back my scholarship which is extremely frustrating.

5 College Junior

Academics: I love my history professor, I will be taking my third course with her this fall. The curriculum is very stimulating and the registration process is quite simple. The workload shifts from class to class, most are extremely light and then there are classes that require constant work. I tend to avoid the popular study areas because I can't concentrate there. However I highly recommend the first floor of ASH by the vending machines because there is food, printing, and a free microwave.

5 College Junior

Academics: Being a Library Science major is honestly really easy for me. I've already worked as a librarian so I can incorporate my experience into my assignments. The workload is light, but tedious. The facilities are amazing since we have a newly renovated building which is gorgeous.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Well there are usually at least one attractive guy in each of my classes. I don't really look at girls though so you'd have to ask someone else. However, since I'm not a technology major I don't get to spend much time at PKI (Tech building) where I would have common interests (video games and stuff) with any guys. Interests and dress wise I'd say it's a normal college variety. Socially, I wouldn't know, I spend too much time commuting back and forth from home to school. Relationships wise I'm quite happy with where I stand.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I am currently trying to get into housing and have never lived there. However my friends dorms have always been very nice and the amenities they show on the tour seem very appealing. I do however believe they are over priced considering it is basically a four bedroom apartment and yet you are each paying seven grand for the year.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus, however I live with my parents so I don't think I'll be of much help here.

College Junior

Greek Life: I am a Non-Greek and my only experience with a Greek was when she cut me off in the parking lot with her Sorority sticker on the back window.

College Junior

Majors: I've not had an internship with the University.

5 College Junior

Majors: I was accepted into the Library Science program upon being accepted into the University, mind you my previous mentor of my library internship knew the head of the Library Science program and got me an interview so I am assuming that helped a bit. However I haven't heard my fellow students complain about it ever.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I have personally never had a problem. I have been on campus til one in the morning and still feel safe walking to my car. Mind you I'm five foot two woman with anxiety, this is kind of a big deal for me.

5 College Junior

Facilities: I love being on campus, and as a commuting student I try to spend all the time I can at the University. It is like a miniature city of college culture and it makes me feel at home.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I've lived in the Omaha area for 10 years. I am also a picky eater, but I can tell you I still find places to eat. The Chipotle next to campus is fantastic, and Canes is a great chicken place. However, HuHot Mongolian Grill gave me food poisoning so I don't recommend going there.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Well we have a really cool hockey team, and the games are fun to watch. I also know that we have an awesome rock climbing wall in our gym. Other than that I am not the person to ask about athletics, I suggest you see an athlete for such information.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I honestly don't even look into this and I think a schools "Diversity Rating" is complete folly. I look at people as people and just don't ask questions like "How much does your household make annually?" or "What do you consider your political beliefs to be?" This is college, not the US census. I ask things like "What is your major?" and "Can I borrow a pen?" If this question was wiped off of all surveys, and people stopped asking it, maybe the world would be less racist.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I grew up in Papillion and commute to school from my parents house. I'm not the biggest social butterfly so I really don't know much about the night life. We have a lot of hockey games, so I count that as sports/recreation because I love hockey. However if you are a football person I suggest going to UNL instead. Shopping is good enough for me, but I don't go shopping much so again, I'm not the best source of information on such things. Also, this is Nebraska and no one comes here for the view and cultural enrichment. It's just a happy place where people actually say hi back you when you greet them.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have never been in a class with more than fifty people, and I have loved all but two of my courses. I find our English Composition 1 and 2 classes to be highly dull and unnecessary, as well as dragged out. The History classes I have taken are stimulating and intriguing, and Public Speaking provided a very supportive class environment.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I applied at UNO knowing that I would be a Library Science major, so I really don't know too much about the different career prospects the University has. I know that at the end of my program I complete an internship at the University Library, but when it comes to alumni and recruiting camps I am not the one to take advice from.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I received what I was offer and didn't have a problem with FA.

Campus Housing: Old housing is close to UNO but really outdated. The new housing is still a 5-10 minute shuttle ride. They are nice, but they are kind of pricey considering youre sharing it with 3 other people.

Greek Life: I don't know a whole lot about the greek life. Its not a very big deal at UNO. The frat boys have a couple houses. I think one is nice and the other two are pretty bad.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Hockey is a big deal, otherwise not much else going on.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: They mostly focus on hockey. I would love to be a basketball school

3 College Freshman

Academics: The workload is sometimes a little much but for the most part, the school has a lot of career opportunities and they are pretty good in academics

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Rarely see any security, but the walkways are fairly lit and there are emergency phones here and there

1 College Freshman

Parking: I don't own a car but I've heard the parking is pretty terrible. It's very expensive, the areas are often broken up so that even the most expensive parking pass doesn't grant you access everywhere, time frames are limited, and I've heard it's difficult to even find a spot if you do pay for it.
