5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are very intuitive and caring about their students, especially when you take the time to go into office hours to speak to them. Often, they will help you with knowing what exactly will be on tests, and are phenomenal to talk to, simply as a human rather than a teacher.

Overall Experience: The career center has lots of career fairs on both City and East campuses, with lots of information on basically anything you could want to know for jobs/internships. The staff is always friendly, and the career center hours are very convenient throughout the week and weekend.

Health & Safety: I'm female, and am often times out late at the library or a club or with friends so I tend to walk places in the dark by myself, and I have never felt threatened or in danger on campus before. However, I do have a few close friends who have been sexually assaulted, but that have occurred with alcohol present - not because it's late and dark out. We had our first annual "End Rape On Campus" walk throughout Lincoln this year, and I believe it raised good awareness of the happenings around campus. The police services are present, and phone numbers are posted in every classroom on campus to contact UNLPD, and it is stressed multiple times throughout the year to put the number into cell phones.

Campus Housing: Without a doubt, if you're looking for a more social atmosphere, Abel and Sandoz is the place to be. If you're more introverted or not looking to go out on the weekends and be bothered by late-night-goers, then HSS would be fit. HSS is a little further away from classes than the other dorms are, but still in fair proximity. Selleck is filled with the majority of international students, and Neihardt is where most of the students in the Honors College reside.

Greek Life: Coming from a Greek, Greek Life is the entirety of campus weekend life. We throw the parties, but let just about anybody in to them, even if you're not Greek. Just about every club, doing just about anything you can think of, has a Greek who is involved in it. We only make up a small percentage of the student body, but our presence around campus makes it seem like we account for around half of the student body. Beautiful Greek housing is available to almost every fraternity and sorority on campus, and the Greek community is tight-knit. Go Greek!!!

Athletics: Football is everything at Nebraska. Even throughout the state- the entire state- everyone pauses their Saturdays to watch the game. In some small towns, places are closed because Football Saturdays are essentially a "religious day", as some see it. As you walk throughout Nebraska on football Saturdays, it's kind of like St. Pattie's day- if you're not wearing Husker red, you're out of place.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Especially with being involved in Greek Life, the experience at UNL is so fantastic. Football season tickets are a must, because it is, without a doubt, the best time of the year. Everybody that goes to the university is so passionate about what they are studying, and each person you meet is so unique and different. I would absolutely, without a doubt pick this school again if I could go back in time.

Overall Experience: It is a good school to get your feet in the water before you actually start an engineering career.

Campus Housing: The Suites are really nice and well-kept. A good peaceful option if you are looking for good study rooms to study and a slightly calmer atmosphere, and you don't want communal showers.

Greek Life: My roommates were Greeks and they were very wishy washy mean sometimes and nice others. A little fake, but I don't think everybody in Greek life is like that.

Athletics: I don't have personal experience with the athletics, but I know that it is one of the leading schools in the nation with their health standards and fitness regimens.

5 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: professors so far have been honest, assisting me in achieving my goals and not just their agenda

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this school. Financial aid is something that I wish was better but here are tons of people that need it. Being an out of state student is what makes it the hardest. I have friends who are from around where I live so that helps with homesickness.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have a great internship with Huskervision later this year. There are so many opportunities for anyone in any college. There are flyers everywhere about jobs and internships.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Overall I feel safe on campus, apart from walking around at night when people are driving by and catcalling. The police get places fast and are very helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I chose to live in one of the residence halls that was very far from my college. Even so, the farthest I'd have to walk to get there was about a mile. The dining hall was good a lot of the time. Food options in the Union were good and they are updating them this year.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not personally a part of Greek life, but I have a couple friends who are involved. As a non-Greek, I tend to try to stay away from Greek row as much as possible. There is a large stereotype about Greek life and I want to be involved as little as possible.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Nebraska's memorial stadium is easily the coolest and most exciting sports venue I've been to. All of the sporting events that I've been to have been full of passion and relentless cheering for the team.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've loved almost all the teachers I've had. They are all very approachable and are always willing to help as long as you ask.

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.
