I enjoy the University of Nebraska-Lincoln because of all the available opportunities and the campus lifestyles. Everyone is so polite and even holds doors open! As far as the opportunities go, they're practically endless. I'm high school, I didn't participate in sports or outside organizations, so that was one of my goals when I first arrived at the university. Thankfully, I have been able to find a plethora of organizations and groups to involve myself with, such as; a fraternity, Spanish club, hall government and Scarlett Guard-a networking organization.
Review Your College
Wonderful school and community. Diverse, tons of options for activities and clubs. Events going on every night of the week. The campus and facilities are clean and beautiful. The atmosphere is welcoming and warm! Wonderful professors who truly care about their students. This is a safe and fun campus and a wonderful thing to be a part of !
I love the atmosphere Lincoln, Nebraska has! If you are a social person and like to be involved, I would highly suggest going Greek! The Greek community in Lincoln is very big and, in my opinion, will improve your college experience as a whole. The classes are great but I will say the difficulty of your class often times varies depending on what professor you get assigned. My overall experience at UNL has been great! GBR
