Very walkable, overall great instruction & experiences

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

More flexible class times/options (including online) would be nice.

The University of Lincoln is a nice place. If you like city life it will be a place for you. Social life is very active if you live in the dorms- there are courtyards and places to hang out. Everything is walkable (unless you have health conditions like me.) The classes have all been interesting and most of the professors seem genuine in hoping that you understand and succeed. Watch out for evil roommates and PD.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Nebraska gets very cold very fast, and classes won't cancel until it's near the brink of an ice age. The school won't allow students living in dorms to buy parking passes for any of the parking lots other than the dorm lot (and they are very expensive.) Watch out for the people who check meters and parking lots as you can get 40$ tickets often.



The University of Nebraska-Lincoln offers students a variety of majors and areas of study. The university keeps making improvements to the buildings and is truly making this a great university to attend and be a part of. Campus life in Lincoln is a truly great experience.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

One of the only things I can think of would be the weather. In Nebraska, it gets pretty cold in the wintertime and it's been windy here the last couple of weeks. I'm from here so I'm used to it.

What first attracted me to UNL was the kindness that I was shown by random strangers when I was on tour. At first, I was not sure if it was a coincidence or not but was drawn to the school. Once I got on campus I realized that the slogan "Nebraska nice" was correct. I am an out-of-state student who came to Nebraska with ten other people (so I basically came knowing absolutely no one. On the very first day when everyone moved in, I knew I made the correct decision. I am currently studying elementary education and all of the professors in education are phenomenal. I have been challenged in to become a better academically as a person. If you're even considering applying I definitely would!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Nebraska is a diverse campus that has all walks of life. I believe every person can find their niche if they look for them.

Just as many other universities in the US, UNL is very diverse, I am an international student and have not witnessed any discrimination happening against me or my peers. Living on-campus allows you to meet many and make friends. In addition, the activities and events organized by students or the university compel you to step out of your comfort zone and socially challenge yourself.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't like that on-campus residence is expensive. Yet, first-year freshmen are required to resign on-campus and are free to reside off-campus after completing their first year.



Being in the Midwest it is a welcoming environment. There are a lot of good resources for students to gain help when they need it and has very supportive staff and professors.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I wish they kept the union cleaner than it is.
