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!

I love that UNO and the staff there that I have run into so far. They do a great job, in my opinion of taking care of students that are on campus. They have fairly decent food on campus (some better than others). Everything is always very clean and they try to keep ever building as updated as possible. I love UNO and when I have to go to Creighton to finish out my degree (because they do not have an Occupational Therapy program) I will really miss it!
UNO has been one of the best decisions I have ever made in my career and personal life! The community, professors, residence halls and so much more has been so great since day one. I truly recommend UNO to young adults who are thinking about college. It's welcoming, safe and affordable! Overall, my experience at UNO has been significant!
