University of Nebraska at Kearney Reviews
I think the University of Nebraska at Kearney is a great college for students who want to be interactive with professors and other students. I have three older sisters who all attend Kearney, and two have transferred to Kearney from other colleges because it fits them perfectly. They had a lot of friends they knew from high school and they have made so many friends in the time of being at college. I have gone and visited them so many times and I love the campus of Kearney and the dorms are very nice I have probably over thirty friends who stay in the dorms and some of them are not all freshman! So if you want to have a relationship with others and your professors I highly recommend you go to the University of Nebraska at Kearney!
My experience at the University of Nebraska at Kearney has been very good. I have meet a lot of people and have made several life long friendships. The academic part is excellent! The class sizes are the perfect size, not too big but not too small. The professors are very easy to talk to if you have any question. I have enjoyed my time here at Kearney! It is a great school.
I have been at the University of Nebraska at Kearney for one year now and I love it. The size of the town and campus are perfect for getting to know people without getting overwhelmed with too many people. Kearney is also very welcoming to college students and offer great deals around the town. The campus is all within walking distance so getting to class is very easy. The only downside to UNK is the cafeteria food. It has gotten better since I first started here, but it could be better. The dorm rooms are a tad small and outdated, but the way the halls are set up allow for great socializing. So far my experience as a loper has been great!
