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 University of Nebraska - Lincoln
With being an out-of-state student, University of Nebraska made me feel at home with the caring professors and the dedication to its students. Whether it be free snacks or people high-fiving each other on the way to class, University of Nebraska has a positive atmosphere and I am happy to call it my home and I am so proud to wear the Big Red N everyday.
GO BIG RED!
My experience at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln has been amazing. The thing I love about this university is that there is something for everyone. There is something almost always going on for students. Its almost impossible not to meet new people. I was not from Nebraska so I was nervous about meeting people. When I got here I was welcomed with open arms. I got involved and met so many new people. Campus is perfect because it isn't to big but at the same time it isn't to small. The sporting events are so fun and everyone seems to have a good time. My experience in the dorms has also been a good one. The dining hall food is so good. Everyone in the dorms have there doors open and are willing to talk to anyone. Off campus you can find so many varieties of foods that are open very late. The professors care about all there students and are willing to talk to you before and after class. I would recommend everyone to come here and enjoy what this university has to offer!
