University of Nebraska - Lincoln Reviews
This university is huge! That being said, there are a lot of resources to assist students in away. The student centers are chic and updated with the latest gadgets! The campus is nice and is in the heart of Lincoln, Nebraska so its very city-like. The emphasis on greek life and athletics is the focal point of the school, so there is a hype surrounding that. The school itself is a BIG party school and people can often get lost in the hype surrounding said parties and can fall behind in academics. Because the school is so big, it can be hard to form relations with any teachers or any relations with potential friends. If you don't belong to an organization, it can be difficult to get out there. However, if you value independence, this school can be the one for you. The dorms are the typical campus dorm, however they are doing renovations/ making new ones. This school is amazing and despite the few flaws, the good totally outweighs the bad.
If you aren't from Nebraska, let me start by saying, Nebraska Nice is a very real thing. The people and atmosphere around the University of Nebraska—Lincoln is so warm and filled with kindness. UNL provides a whole array of opportunity for extra curricular, class content and lifestyles. Whether you are standing in the Boneyard Student Section at a sold out football game or you are eating an ice cream cone from the Dairy Store, UNL will find a place in your heart and really help you expand on your goals- helping you make them a reality. The faculty is very involved in student success. Overall, attending the University of Nebraska was the best decision I could make!
Attending UNL was a wonderful experience! My classes were varied and engaging, I loved my professors, the campus is beautiful, and the tuition is fair. I made lasting friends and memories. I lived in Selleck which boasts a varied exchange student population. The dining halls are great and dorms are clean. The campus is right near downtown with plenty of entertainment within walking distance. There is a convenient on-site health clinic, and the athletics program cannot be beat. I would recommend UNL to any prospective college student.
