I loved my classes and teachers for the most part, but the social side of my school can be difficult. Its hard to get to know your neighbors in the housing but I know other students in different residence halls have had better luck! My only bad experience at my school is how housing complaints are handled. If I were anything but a straight white female my concerns would be valid. But on the other hand my school is great with international students and has created an open and accepting environment. The camps became smoke free this year and I am very excited!

The school we have is not a private school. It is not a big popular school that is a dream come true and a school that you just attend for partying. It's a "put work in, get results out" kind of school. But I love it! Surrounded by nature, this campus is a pleasure to walk on campus, and has so much energy and really does try to include everyone in fun activities, either to remove stress or try to connect one another! The tools we need are always there, with a huge Library to plenty of activities to get involved in! I love it so much here. It's small, but mighty!

Housing is amazing. It was one of my main reasons of going to UNO. All of the housing units are spacious and everyone has their own room. No sharing with another person! It's so nice. All of the units have a full kitchen(sink, island, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, garbage disposal, stove, oven), living room, 2 bathrooms, and four decently-sized bedrooms. Also, depending on which living community you are placed, the laundry units are in the same building where you live where you can wash your clothes for FREE. Wi-Fi and cable are also included.
