I love the atmosphere on campus, it's incredibly diverse for being in Midwest America and has a lot of international students. There are numerous clubs and organizations to join and fun events happening all the time! I feel very connected to the university and have learned a lot. My only critique is that it could be a lot more environmentally friendly by incorporating reusable meal trays at the dining halls or less single-use plastic in general. But that's like any university around the world, overall it's a great experience.

I really enjoy my campus along with the resources available for students. I live on campus and they really make an effort to make us feel included. I have made use of the student center many times, I spend hours studying in the multicultural office surrounded by supportive peers and staff members and I also have gone to the student clinic when I felt sick or needed a counseling session. There are little things that have made me dislike UNO. The only one I can name is that a few of my professors have been harsh or disrespectful towards me. Otherwise, UNO is wonderful!
University of Nebraska at Omaha has become a second home to me! There is a great sense of community on campus and so many groups and organizations that welcome any and everyone. Being a disabled student, I have been very grateful to the accessibilities department for helping me with transportation needs, as well as having professors that are willing to work with me to make sure that I can succeed!
