Judging from students’ comments, it’s obvious that Lincoln is a college town. There are four colleges in the area, which means there are tens of thousands of college students to run into at bars, sporting events, parties, malls, and concerts. Omaha offers a nice change of pace for when students get tired of the usual Lincoln hangouts.
Lincoln’s no NYC, but considering it’s 35 times smaller, it still has enough to keep any young adult occupied. While the city doesn’t have a Broadway or well-known historical landmarks, it does have its share of nature and enough local landmarks to make it feel like home. Lincoln is small enough that, during your senior year, you’ll probably recognize someone anywhere you go, but it’s also big enough that you’re not bored out of your mind after the first week.
