I love the atmosphere Lincoln, Nebraska has! If you are a social person and like to be involved, I would highly suggest going Greek! The Greek community in Lincoln is very big and, in my opinion, will improve your college experience as a whole. The classes are great but I will say the difficulty of your class often times varies depending on what professor you get assigned. My overall experience at UNL has been great! GBR

I've really loved college thus far. Not having class after class all day every day seems to benefit my learning style. I get to go and work on the class I was just in rather than waiting 7 hours to do homework. My favorite experiences have probably been the football games. Coming into college, I knew enough about football to get through a game, but now I actually know what is going on. I was born a Husker and a true Husker I am now! The football games are crazy. Everyone in the stadium has so much pride, it's ridiculous. We truly have the greatest fans in college football history. It has, however, been difficult being so far away from home. Quite honestly, I miss my dogs more than anything! I can call my parents, friends and sister, but I haven't seen my boys in two months and I can't wait to see them again. My dogs were my life and it's been a struggle to learn to live without them. I am really satisfied with my choice of school. If I were to think about changing schools, it would only be to attend an institution closer to home.

Being an Ag fanatic, the first time I stepped onto East Campus, I knew this was where I was going to go. It is a beautiful campus. When I talked to the different professors in different programs and saw the facilities, my love for this place grew even more! Fantastic campus, people, and education.
