3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: School is once in a life time thing so do right!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful with a lot of opportunities for students. It's in a great locations and a good way to meet new people.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I like UNO having the electrical engineering in Omaha that usually was only available at Lincoln.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have loved my experience at UNO thus far! It is a great sized school and a perfect location for me. There is always something going on, and they have a wide variety of majors and clubs that appeal to everyone. My school was recently rated the most military friendly school in the nation, which is of utmost importance to me, as my boyfriend is in the Army and currently studies at UNO to become an officer. I have had some truly great teachers that have taught me valuable information for my career field. I am studying social work and hope to aid the military upon graduation. The social work program at UNO has been a fantastic experience. For the first time in my education, I feel immensely confident in my abilities and competence of this subject. My professors and advisors have been so supportive and helpful. I feel that I am already creating a valuable network among them. I am very confident that UNO is thoroughly preparing me for my future. It means so much to me to be accepted into the social work program and continue my education with peers that value the same things as I do. I truly look forward to school now instead of dreading it, now that I am deep into my field of study and am taking classes that apply to me!

Campus Housing: Food court, college buildings, amenities, parking are all in proximity

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have lived in two apartments off of campus in Omaha, Nebraska. One was close to the school's dome, or center campus. The apartment complex I am currently at is located off of Cass street by the local Hyvee. Prices are decent if split with another person, and Peony Village has great amenities such as a washer and dryer in the unit. Both of my apartments were 8-12 minutes away from campus depending on the day and time.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The "party scene" depends on what time of year it is and who you are friends with. The best parties that I have been to are either hosted by frats or are smaller parties with mutual friends. Random house parties can be dangerous if you do not know the area or the hosts.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you are looking for fast food there are many places to go that are just a few minutes away from UNO. There are also sit-in restaurants like Applebees, Olive Garden, and Old Chicago nearby.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The parking at UNO is a pain so I pay for a garage parking pass on campus, although it is more expensive I know I will always have a parking spot. Other students are late for class or receive tickets because their assigned lot was unavailable so they park in a separate area.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Those who work in the financial aid office are very helpful and are willing to explain the papers and information needed. It is a hassle that forms have to be delivered in person to the office for information checking when the government and the school have already received the FAFSA.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Good food can be found, but there is not much variety if you eat the student center cafe everyday. The Scott Cafe on south campus does have an assortment of foods, but if you eat there often enough you have seen or eaten everything. The Scott Cafe is also the only place on campus that a meal plan can be purchased from; traveling to south campus just to eat is a hassle if you do not have much time. It is the same price to order in food as to eat on campus. The Starbucks coffee on campus is disgusting and is not made properly.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Both University Village and Maverick Village are controlled by the same people/person. If you have a difficult roommate it is nearly impossible for the issue to be resolved unless you are able to find someone to replace you and your contract. All of the rooms are always full, so switching dorms is not an option. Only having to share the bathroom with one individual is nice, and the dorms on the main campus are a short walk away from class.

Greek Life: I once thought about joining the greek life, but i thought to myself i don't think i am Greek life material...until i read more about the sororities that UNO, or general there are... not all are like the seem to be, and most if not all do a lot for there community and school, so i am contemplating whether or not to join this upcoming year...who knows i may make more friends, and become more socially aware which can help my confidence and thus grades will go up!!!

Off-Campus Dining: a lot of places one can eat at! my personal favorite would be panda express, or raising canes...there's a target, and a mini mall, a lot of places give you a discount, and even let you pay with your mav card, of course if you have money, and that's very convenient

Party Scene: I really wouldn't know! I kind of want to find out, but then I don't, the students that i know party usually don't let them affect school work, they seem to have a blast

Administration: UNO Is very strict when it comes to a lot of things but that is why the system works so well, they only want the best and safety for every student, I like how they make you take alcohol assessments, and keep you on your toes reminding policies, they keep students and staff very involved
