5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The health center is fast and fullfills all of my needs!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My classes are moderate or small sized. The professors are knowledgeable and care about my education. The campus is nice and beautiful. I love the size of the campus and how friendly everyone is.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career services and major exploration programs are excellent!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I've made some of my closest friends living in the dorms.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love greek life because of the connections I've made!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Many teams do great in sports and we all gather around to cheer them on.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm an undecided major and the advisors and professors are extremely helpful. They really care about my education here at UNL.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not in greek life, but seems to play a big role and a lot of people join.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The facilities are top knotch and are well updated and are fun events to attend

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great diversity and a wide variety of activities to get involved and feel safe.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have had several night classes over the past couple of years, and I never worry about scheduling those because I feel so safe on campus. There usually are still quite a few people going to classes around the same time, so you're never really walking alone.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of the courses I've taken have pertained to my major.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career center is always hosting career fairs, so it's nice to be able to network several times per year.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I enjoyed living in Abel my freshman year. It was fun, my roommate and I got along, I met the friends I still hang out with two years later, and I got to eat as much as I wanted.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are so many Greek houses on campus that you can almost always get into at least one, but it's hard to get into the one you want.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Two words: Big Ten. Because UNL is a Big Ten school, our football program is HUGE. We have the best student section in the country, and our school spirit is out of this world. I didn't expect to have so much at the football games, but that might be my favorite part of going to school here. The other sports are fun to watch too, but nothing compares to a Husker football game.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've made so many amazing friends here! Because it's such a big, major school, I've met people from all over the country. I can't imagine going to school somewhere else.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Always police cars parked outside at some dorm or Greek house, and some of the Greek houses have been shut down recently due to dangerous activity that even involved the death of a student, I know one of the houses (Sigma Chi) was only just recently reinstated in the past few years after being shut down for some time after sexual assault on a member. Certainly don't feel safe walking around in the dark around here. Frequently getting campus alerts regarding someone getting robbed or having a gun. There's emergency call boxes around campus which could be useful, if you're in the right area. Also doesn't help that a solid majority of the students on campus (specifically the men...sorry) don't take campus violence seriously and you can frequently hear jokes regarding the issues on campus which is quite unsettling.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are okay, only a few have really stuck out to me, and those were in the smaller classes I was enrolled in of course, but that's a given. Professors of the larger lecture classes seem to be there to do their jobs and not much more. Might be willing to build a relationship during office hours, but also seem to busy for that. Courses at this school are all right, you get what you need, you get more than what you need since you're being made to take a bunch of ACE courses you won't need for your major, but for "enrichment", when it's just more tuition money being spent and more valuable time wasted. Most class sizes are large and typical lectures and labs for science courses. No particular special touches that I can think of, just national standards.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Very cramped and of course very expensive for the space you get (Harper Hall), and usually pretty noisy. With a scholarship I earned, I was required to stay in a certain dorm my first year, despite not developing any real ties with anyone, and the dorm in particular was okay, but nothing to rave about. The best options seem to be the suites, which are usually taken quickly. Housing dealings were easy enough, but it was annoying how there was only one 24/7 desk in my entire complex, which made some things an extra hassle.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: If you are into athletics (read: football) then you'll love this school. I'm not, and feel out of place at this school but am constantly pressured by staff and professors to attend the games.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: University of Nebraska @ Lincoln is okay, nothing special and obsessed with football as you'd imagine any big 10 school that isn't hard on admissions. Not very accommodating in scheduling, even when THEY screw up, even when I have a documented disability with them. Classes are big and I've rarely had any professor that demonstrated a vested interest in my success, and scholarship support staff are only moderately concerned. Definitely don't feel at home on this campus, even though I've always lived in the city in which this school is located.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe around campus, because people are always out and walking around. There are also emergency blue buttons around, so if something happens i feel safe with the security we have

Campus Housing: The best options that i have found for living on campus would be in the courtyard that is more apartment style, rather than a traditional dorm. It is quite and you get your own space

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The fans are always so supportive to everything, but especially football. We make the sea of red on game days. Mostly everyone that goes here has great school spirit and all comes together to cheer on our teams.

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.
