I attend this school for graduate school in counseling. I have not had the opportunity to live on campus and I commute from a different city. In my opinion, the professors are passionate about what they do and have had experience being counselors themselves. The program is affordable as well. Most of the graduate classes are online and some are in person. The program is flexible if you want to be a part-time student or a full-time student for graduate work.
I have seen that UNK has sports events and they are well attended. They also have some pretty big names come and perform on campus, like Yung Gravy. I consistently get emails about events on campus which range from multicultural events, academic conferences, and study abroad opportunities. The buildings I have seen are recently renovated as well.
On campus they have multiple coffee shops (including Starbucks) and a few fast-food places (like Subway). There are multiple restaurants nearby too. I haven't had the chance to try campus food. They have a gym here too with a rock-climbing wall if you are interested! Apparently, every student has tried it once.
The students I have worked with so far in the graduate program, are focused on the program. I would say half of them just earned their bachelor's degree and the other half are working adults. So, there is no partying. People came here to get a degree and change their careers after all.
What I like about this program is that you get field experience. There isn't a thesis you complete, instead you are doing hours in the field of counseling. I like how practical it is to our lives.
My opinion of UNK is that I feel very welcome here. All of the professors are there to help you succeed. There are many opportunities to get help in any class. Students are also very helpful and very kind. Its an amazing campus. I may be just a freshman but I am glad I chose UNK to be my home for the next 3 1/2 years.
I am very glad I chose to come here. As being only a freshman I feel right at home with everyone. You aren't left out of things and there always seems to be something going on around campus that reaches everyone. The professor's are some of the best I have ever had and they are really easy to work with on things.
Great class size, and campus size.

Everyone changes their college major at least once throughout the course of their college carrer. It's okay if you don't know exactly what you want to do with your life, go in as undecided and take classes to learn what interests you most. From there decide which direction you want to take your life in. The transition into college isn't overly difficult, but be prepared to miss home. Save money so you don't have to work as much in college, that way you can participate in extra-curricular activities more. Study hard and pay attention to deadlines, late work isn't really accpeted in college. First tests are generally the worst of the whole semester, don't panic if you don't do as well as you normally do. Most of all: have fun your college years are suppose to be the best years.
The opportunity for students to do research as undergraduates in their field that is meaningful.
It is a great school for the typical middle class Nebraskan.
I wish I would have known about all the cliques. Many different groups on this campus.

UNK is best known for it's Education Majoring programs.
I brag about the great art department that I am fortunate to have while attending here. The professors and how they're so talented with what they do and it keeps things interested and I feel great to know I am being taught by people who are blessed with such a gift.
The most frustrating thing about my school os that every teacher has different ideas and rules. They each do their own things. Some teachers give very challenging tests and other teachers don't give tests. It is frustrating that they can teach the same class and do completely different things.
