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.

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.
I absolutely love it here at UNL. There are so many things to get involved in on campus and off campus. The city of Lincoln is the perfect college town and there's plenty of fun things to do. Academic wise, the university pushes students to do their best and go beyond their comfort zone. The sports here bring the entire state of Nebraska together. GO BIG RED!
