Campus Food: The food is edible but nonetheless decent. It isn't great but its still better than what they served in High School.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have only been attending this school at the Omaha Campus for several months but its great. I love the environment and the professors. The facilities are pretty modern and have all the necessary accessories that one could want in complete their college education.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty of options. You're sure to find something that meets your quality needs / budget

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Once again nothing special. No student discounts, you'd pay just like anyone else living around those parts. No special places that stand out from any other place.

4 College Junior

Administration: They keep everything in line without generally anything going too overboard.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I got a scholarship coming into my freshman year. Wasn't to much of a hassle.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: A bunch of people go off and get drunk somewhere. Nothing special. Not my thing.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I mean it's food it's going to keep you going and it's not the worst food you'll ever have. Just nothing to rave about.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: They've cleaned up a lot of the more common living areas. But some of the older buildings are really starting to show their age and look a little well worn. Some laboratory equipment could also be updated.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The most popular place is Raising Canes, but there are plenty of other places students prefer to go. I like going to the Historic Haymarket in downtown Lincoln; there are tons of restaurants there to explore. Restaurants are affordable for the most part.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The rec is an amazing facility. This school is the 9th fittest school in the nation, so you can bet people work out on a regular basis. Libraries are very accessible, great for studying. Campus events and traditions are abundant during football season especially. We're definitely a football school. There are always campus-sponsored events, because I always get emails and texts about them. The university always has something going on for everyone.

Athletics: Love game days and football season. The campus is somewhat dead and different during the off-season though. But the university is passionate and supportive of sports other than football, such as basketball, volleyball, and soccer.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not a part of greek life here, but I have friends who are. The parties are enjoyable, and most people are super nice. Sometimes there is judging that happens in regards to stereotypes and such, but a lot of those should be disregarded.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Great opportunities for out-of-state scholarships.

Party Scene: Never have had trouble finding a party on the weekends. Parties are usually in the same neighborhood, but they're fun if you go with a couple of friends and know people there.

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on this campus, but it's always a good idea to travel in groups. The rec is at most a five minute walk from my dorm, and that's the furthest I will walk at night on campus. However, I would say this campus is very safe, even with downtown right on the edge of campus.

Campus Housing: Saying that I love this school would be an understatement. The dorms are nice and give you what you want for your money. Studying is easy because you have your room and multiple study rooms on your floor. In addition, there are study rooms located on the first floor of each building, so it's easy to change up your studying environment, as I like to do. Amenities are awesome. You don't have to worry about air conditioning/heating, as you are able to control everything yourself. If something ever breaks, the FixIt service is beneficial. The workers will come and fix anything up within an hour. The social atmosphere was great my freshman year. My friends and I never had problems trying to find something to do on the weekends. Go out and meet people! It's what makes college enjoyable. Cost wise, I don't think I could have picked a better out-of-state school. There are plenty of scholarship opportunities. One of the scholarships I received ($13,500 George Beadle) only required a 25 on the ACT. If you're very involved in high school, holding leadership positions, volunteering, gaining work experience, etc. you shouldn't have problems getting additional scholarships. Just make sure you keep your grades up; two scholarships I received from the university require me to maintain a 3.5 GPA. I don't think I should have a problem doing this, however. There are many resources across campus, such as academic resource centers, professor's office hours, TA office hours, study sessions, and more. It makes it easy to keep up with coursework and get the grades you want if you get in the habit of taking advantage of these resources early on. To sum it up, this is a great school. The people are nice, teachers are quality, and social environment is always thriving! Don't judge immediately thinking that "Nebraska" is filled with farmers who eat a lot of corn; you'll be very surprised.

Campus Food: The campus food is pretty good, although I have to walk halfway across campus to go to the good dining hall where i generally eat.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The school is not too strict and it is easy to have a good time without getting into any trouble.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the dorms on campus which are nice but are located far away from some of my classes.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
