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.
I am a freshman here at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and I love it here! The atmosphere and size are just what I wanted in a school; big enough that I can walk around campus and not know everyone and yet small enough that most of my professors know my name. The course options are varied and interesting but can become challenging if you get behind. There is something for everyone too! From academic and recreational clubs to intramural sports and campus events, there's almost always something to do to fit your interests.
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!
