4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I haven't personally been involved in any Greek life on campus, but I do know a little bit about the Aviation Institute's fraternity, Alpha Eta Rho. AHP is a coed fraternity geared toward like-minded aviation students and serves as a connection between students and the aviation industry, providing even more opportunities for networking and obtaining jobs in the industry. AHP has several events throughout the semester that invite new members to attend and potentially join, as well as events for current members to volunteer at several public aviation events.

Athletics: UNO has a pretty good diversity of athletics, like soccer, basketball, track & field, and baseball. But our big one is NCAA hockey. Hockey is for UNO what football is for UNL. There is a huge fan base for the UNO Hockey team not only from the students but also the general public. All the hockey games rapidly sell out several weeks in advance, and the UNO Hockey team makes sure that continues to be the case by winning a vast majority of the home games played at the new Baxter Arena. The HPER (Health, Physical Education, and Recreation - pronounced hyper) facility is a massive building built to accommodate not only the sports teams but also any students who just want to exercise or have fun. The building includes areas set aside for basketball, swimming, weight lifting, running, calisthenics, and even rock climbing. Although UNO is not a nationally famous school for its athletics, the school's efforts really show at the local level with some of the best facilities and most competitive teams in the area.

Overall Experience: I've absolutely loved my experience in the UNO Aviation program so far. In barely a year I've already accomplished things that have been incredibly rewarding, such as being a member of my school's NIFA flight team, finishing my Instrument rating (A very difficult add-on to a private pilot's license), and already having a pilot interview set up with an airline company I hope to work for. One of my favorite things about my program is that I am required to flight train for pilot's licenses all the way through the flight instructor license, in order to graduate with a bachelor of science in professional flight. Flying is a huge passion of mine, and finding a degree program that allows me to do something I love while putting it toward a degree and career is a wonderful experience. Something unique about the UNO Aviation Institute is its small size. The department's small student body and extremely helpful faculty members give it an atmosphere similar to a small town, where everybody knows everybody and is willing to help each other out. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't choose any other program. I've made so many amazing connections already, not only with fellow students but also with aviation professionals who work in several companies and fields that I myself am aiming to achieve. The Aviation Institute seems like it really was meant for me, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Its a great school to attend to. Very open and caring.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The University of Nebraska at Omaha is a great school for business students. The students and faculty are diverse and very inclusive. As in any college experience, some professors are more enthusiastic about teaching and more engaged with their students. I find that UNO generally leans this way, and it makes learning a more positive experience rather than a burden. The downside of this school is that the cost is not generally affordable for someone who works full time and goes to school full time. I have had to prioritize which books I am going to go without each semester due to the high tuition and fees costs, as well as parking, and the fact that most books are over $200. Aside from cost, I believe that UNO offers great opportunities to its students.

Drug Safety: There are not a lot of drugs present here at UNO I don't think, but I'm sure there are some. Peer pressure plays a big role in the choices concerning alcohol here though. Many kids feel that if they don't drink then they will be made fun of so that is why many give in.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everything from the class sizes to the professors are all well picked and put here at UNO. I have no complaints about them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At the beginning of the year there is a job fair so that we are able to see all the jobs and internships available to us students and I feel that it is really helpful. UNO does a good job with all of this and trying to get students involved and working.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus here at UNO is amazing and I love it! The Resident Assistants here are so helpful and friendly that it makes it easy to talk to them and ask questions anytime. There is so much space here in the rooms and while the cost is a little more that I would like to pay it isn't too unreasonable. It was easy to apply and get into the dorms as well. The social atmosphere is awesome as well, my first day here I met almost all the people in my dorm as we were moving in and they are all super friendly!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had amazing teachers all year and would not want to go anywhere else.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Emergency Management is still an emerging field and there are new jobs all the time. I am looking forward to see what is around when I graduate.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I don't know about the sexual assault. I felt safe on campus but my roommates did not make me feel safe.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Personally I am not involved in Greek life so I don't know a whole lot about the whole system, but I do know that there are a lot of great things they do to help the community.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit is something that is not taken lightly here at UNO. The teams have been pretty successful given the transition into D1 over the past few years and they are continuing to grow and improve more and more each year.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far my experience has been amazing and I wouldn't change a thing about it. Everyone here is so welcoming and nice so it makes it easy to make new friends and feel welcome here. I would for sure choose this school again if I started all over, it is the best school I've seen and visited. It is like it's own little community inside Omaha and everyone is very friendly and it feels kind of like a big family.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Awful international roommates second semester. They burned inscents and were up all night chanting and singing and banging on doors.I feared for my safety and because I was a straight white female I was told if I have these concerns I "would be better served off campus".

5 College Junior

Athletics: I hate working out but loved our gym/ rec area. I worked there as a lifeguard and loved it and found work out machines I actually enjoy besides the pool! Clean and nice, separate from the weight room so it is way less intimidating!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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!

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe but I am unaware of how much crime actually occurs on campus.
