What is your overall opinion of this school?
I love going to this school and I believe that transfering here was the best decision that I ever made during my sophomore year. I belong to the College of Journalism and Mass Communications and the opportunities are amazing there. One example is that during the summer of 2010 I was able to work with the National Special Olympics when they were in Lincoln.
UNL is composed to two campuses, City and East. I spent most of my time on city until my last semester when I found a much cheaper dorm on East campus. City campus is great if you like to be near downtown and aound all the action but East campus is a lot better if you like the peace and quiet.
Lincoln is not a college campus, it is way too big for that. Once you get out of the downtown area there is no hint that there is a college anywher near it. There are a lot of experiences to have in Lincoln. UNL is a big school, and the dean has plans to make it even larger, but it never feels so overcrowded. I worried when I transferred here that it would be crazy with all of the people walking aroun, but it really felt about the same as the smaller school that I left in South Dakota.
I think that there is a lot of school pride at UNL. Just going to a Husker football game can show you were I am coming from. The fans go crazy, and many students moods hinge on the outcome of the game. One of the reason that I decided to come to UNL was because of my dad and I watching the games when I was younger and I wanted to be a part of that.
