I like everything about University of Nebraska in Lincoln except dorms and housing because the rooms look old to me

I loved the campus and the resources available for students. Professors were generally very good and seemed genuinely interested in student success.

Visiting the campus was a little intimidating because the school is so big in my opinion. What made it a little easier was the fact that students who were visiting the school also looked pretty nervous about visiting for the first time. The school looks great people were very nice and teachers were also very nice in what they did.
