4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus food is great because of the wide variety of options.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus Housing is great because of the proximity to classes and the atmosphere of being on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is way better than living on-campus. For one, it's about $3000 cheaper, and that's for a year, not just nine months. The convenience of housing is pretty good too...next year I'm living a mile away from campus, which will be a 2 minute drive. So that's nice. The school does nothing to help you live off campus though, and I'll have to purchase an on-campus parking permit.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I've lived in Lincoln my whole life, so I think the food selection is pretty good. You might have to drive a little ways if you want something really different, but nowhere is farther than 30 minutes unless you got to Omaha.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't really had any experience with the campus security or gotten in trouble for stuff, so I think it's fine. There's definitely stuff that goes on that gets shut down pretty quick, but there's also stuff that happens that all the students know about that somehow none of the staff do.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I've never attended a party, unless you call Husker gameday a party. So I can't really judge on the party scene.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a Regent's scholarship, so I get full tuition paid for as long as I maintain a 3.5 GPA. Individual colleges also have scholarships you can get through them as well, so while I am still paying for housing, my tuition is completely covered. Plus in the Honors program, you get a book scholarship which is super helpful.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Everybody thinks the dining hall that they don't live by is the best--if you switch dining halls, then you get more variety. Husker Hoagies & Heroes are fantastic, and they're open longer than the regular dining halls, so you have more flexibility there. Meals are super expensive--$10 for a bowl of cereal is a little overpriced. I think I've eaten maybe three meals this whole year that have been worth the $10-$12 dollars per meal that we pay. Weekend food is terrible, and there is no selection at all. I end up eating out, in my dorm room, or going home so that I don't have to eat in the dining hall on the weekend.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Very convenient and close to classes--pretty much a 5-10 minute walk anywhere on campus. Cost is affordable, although it is much cheaper to live off campus, even if you have to pay $400/month for rent. The Honors dorm has a great community feel to it that you don't get as much in the other dorms. Social events are open to everyone, and like everything at college, it's what you participate in and how much you do that determines what you get out of it. Signing up for housing is pretty easy...it's the roommate process that can be a hassle.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Depends on where you live but mostly easy to find

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are always new places to try

3 College Freshman

Administration: Alcohol or drugs are what they are most strict on

College Freshman

Party Scene: I do not party nor have I ever been to one

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am having difficulty finding scholarships

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The quality of the food is good everywhere

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Good community and I feel more involved

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Love it. Best decision I ever made was to go Greek!

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.
