4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All of my friends were really close, small dorms.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I still live on campus

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party. You shouldn't either.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: You can't go wrong with non D-Hall food

3 College Freshman

Administration: Don't park anywhere you aren't allowed to.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I won the Regent's. Get a 30 on your ACT

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: No variety, kind of low quality

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many apartment complexes located in the downtown area, or close enough to be within walking distance.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not Greek affiliated, and I don't live on campus. So I don't party at all.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Many of the party venues while attending UNL were quite messy due to the fact that most of them are held in the houses of students who live in the bottoms. Off-campus houses provided most of the parties due to the dry campus policy. The party scene itself is average and consists mainly of drinking.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Since campus is downtown, there are many options that a student can choose from.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have had no problems with the administration. In fact, they worked well with me to get back money on a parking fine that I shouldn't have gotten.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My mom mostly dealt with my financial aid, but from what she told me, it was rather easy. I got the money I needed on time to pay for my student bills.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is a lot of variety that definitely appeals to students, but I ate in the dining halls only on my tour day, so I can't really judge what the food was like. I wish everywhere in the Union took credit card, most did but sometimes I didn't have cash on me for the restaurants that I wanted to go to that only accepted cash or Ncards.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I didn't live on campus for my first year of college, I lived at home.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I stayed on campus for the year that I spent at UNL. However, I have been to a couple friend's places off campus and they seem all right. I would definitely think about moving off campus at some point in my undergraduate career.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Although I didn't frequent downtown Lincoln in order to eat due to my meal plan, I knew that there were some attractive options for food out there. I found the diversity in ethnic cuisine in downtown Lincoln to be quite surprising since I didn't have high expectations to begin with. Among popular eateries such as Chipotle and Raising Canes, Lincoln also sports a Japanese Ramen restuarant which I plan to eat at eventually.

3 College Freshman

Administration: At UNL, the prominent school policy that frustrated many students was the "dry campus" policy which is rare among most schools. Obviously there are good reasons for the enforcement of that policy in a school like UNL since there isn't really much else for students to do in the city of Lincoln. However, many of the upperclassmen would complain about the policy interfering with their social plans for that weekend or something of the sort. It didn't personally affect me all too much but I'd say that the school policies are fair overall.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't apply for any financial aid in my freshman year due to lack of initiative. However, I did receive a substantial amount of aid from the Regents Scholarship offered by UNL to students with a certain ACT score.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: When I was at UNL this past year, I frequented CPN dining hall due to its proximity to Neihardt Hall. The food was often great all around including main course options as well as dessert. However, the best thing about CPN were the dining staff. They were always the kindest towards students no matter what time of the day it was. The exact opposite can be said about Selleck Dining Hall which I always found confusing.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My experience at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln was very poor in terms of the on campus housing. I stayed in Neihardt Hall for my first year and found it to be the most cramped option out of all the dorms on campus. The overall building quality is low due to the age of the building itself, the bathrooms always had a pretty bad odor whenever passing by it, and the student community in the hall felt exclusive. The only perk of Neihardt was its location relative to most of the major buildings and dining halls.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: All of the costs to live in Lincoln are very expensive. The quality for the cost is not that great.

4 College Student

Party Scene: The party scene is great for people who don't care about dirtiness. The parties are normally in the bottoms, in nasty houses which can have a negative affect on some people. I personally don't care and think they are great. It's very nice how the fraternity boys provide the houses, alcohol, and DDs to get home.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I love the variety of places to eat in haymarket Lincoln. There are plenty of options for whatever mood you're in to eat.

3 College Student

Administration: The administration does their job the best way they know how. It has gotten to be more strict after the farmhouse death which is understandable and encouraged.

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.
