I've had a great experience with the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I've been able to enjoy the "college experience" by getting involved with organizations and greek life on campus. With that, I still have the benefits of going to a smaller school. My class sizes are about 25-30 people, and my teachers all know us by name. The teachers at UNO are always willing to help students. In light of COVID-19, the university did an amazing job transitioning students to remote learning. I even did an internship across the country while still being enrolled at the university, and had an amazing experience working with my advisors and teachers while I was away. Living on campus at UNO is also perfect! All of the dorms here are apartment style, where you get our own bedroom and have a bathroom in the apartment!

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.
Overall the University of Nebraska at Omaha is a really great school. The campus is beautiful with GREAT dorms. No other school's dorms that I have seen can compare to the dorms at UNO. It is very centrally located in Omaha which makes it easy to leave campus and do things. My class experience was mostly online, but no complaints there!
