UNO is a decent university. I think if you're looking for a school that's not too busy and crowded but still want the university life it is a great option. The college is relatively safe and i haven't felt unsafe. The faculty for the most part are very friendly and accessible. One of the biggest drawbacks is the lack of diversity both in student body and staff.
The University of Nebraska at Omaha is a very home-y campus. It is a relaxed environment with enough emphasis and focus on academia. The main complaint between students and faculty is the parking lots, which is about all there is to complain about. There are many clubs, groups, and sports to join or watch, and there are always plenty of activities provided by the University.
UNO has a strong education program. They will make you work in your classes to earn your grade, but as a first-year teacher, you will appreciate it. There are many different types of general education courses you can take to expose yourself to new information or skills.
I think that the school itself and the academics are very good, but the dorm sucks and it is very difficult with COVID-19. I would definitely recommend this school to people who are honestly looking to learn, but if you aren't willing to commit yourself and your time to your studies then you won't succeed because it is a lot of work.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for University of Nebraska at Omaha is 86%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Finding the right college is best done by asking someone who's been there. These people know the inside scoop - not just what the college wants to tell you! Websites like campusdiscovery.com that survey the students over the internet are the way to go.
College isn't just about the classes you take. These are useful, but in college you really have to start to figure out what you want to do with your life and then make proactive attempts to get there. In elementary, middle school, and high school we were spoon fed information and expected to simply retain it. Fortunately, classes in college sometimes break out of that, but sometimes not. Once I got to college I realized it's a lot like high school, but with more advanced material. Realizing this, however, is what allows me to make college so much more productive. No longer do I have to wait for 'something more' out of my education. I realize I have to educate myself and use the resources available. Extra-curricular activities and clubs are one way to do this, as long as they pertain to what you want to get out of life.
There is always someone outside playing music, handing out information, or preaching about something. When I only have 10 minutes to walk across campus it's nice to not be bothered.
My school is just the right size, friendly, and career focused.
My classmates are very honest, nice, hard-working and dedicated.
The multitude of opportunites to meet new people.
The things that I wished I would have known before coming to school is that the parking on campus isn't the greatest, but there are shuttle buses that can take you to campus from parking lots around campus. Also I would have liked to know that there seems to always be some type of construction always going on on campus, but that is a good thing because UNO is always trying to stay techno advanced.
A shy person. It is very hard to meet friends here.
The University of Nebraska at Omaha offers a high quality education at a very reasonable tuition rate. I was completely satisfied with the faculty, the programs offered, and the education I received. UNO also has great partnerships with local businesses. During my MBA studies, I participated in a Graduate Assistant program working at a local corporation that offered real world experience and led to a full time job after graduation.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the city is so big and there is not much on campus housing. So, it is really hard to meet people because so many people live off campus. The only way to really meet students then is in class, but usually you are in a class with people your same age and are in the same situation you are in.
My School is best known for it's Mavrick team and Huskers club.
I honestly believe any type of person could attend this school. From young to old, white to black, all type of people attend this university and just about anyone can fit in and be happy here.
I most frequently brag about my dorm room and my college living conditions. I was given my own room, and share a bathroom with only three other people. There is a cafeteria located in the same building that I live in which means I won't freeze to death trying to eat during the winter. Maid service was also included with my dorm room. No bathroom cleaning for me!! Thanks to all of these accomodations I feel as though my room is the perfect environment for achieving everything I set out to achieve!
The best thing about UNO is that there are so many students who are very involved in organizations on campus. It's amazing of what an impact students can have on others. I wish our school was a little bigger even though we have a north campus and a south campus, but it's a definitely a "go to" school. People who live in omaha automatically assume they'll go to UNO someday unless they have bigger plans for their future and move out of state. When I tell people I attend UNO they're not surprised or anything, but they assume that's where most students go who live in Omaha. I spend most of my time at the library, and it seems like the library and the student center are the two most common places for students to be or hang out. I'm content with my school's administration, but I know some aren't a huge fan of the greeks. That will change very soon! There's not a lot of controversy on campus but sometimes the religious groups can "in your face" sometimes. Just keep your cool and keep walking. Nothing unusual about the school, but there some interesting facts/rumors about our school which you'll find out at orientation if you decide to come to UNO! There is a lot of school pride especially at hockey games. Most schools are big on football games, well for us it's hockey! It's a different atmosphere but still very exciting, trust me. I'll always remember my greek experience here at UNO because it has done a lot for me as a person/leader. Also, the most popular topic you'll hear a student complain about is PARKING!! there's nothing you can do about it, but the school is always trying to brainstorm ways to make parking easier for the students. Overall, coming from a student who wanted to go to California for school and did not want to stay in Omaha, it's been a fun journey so far. College is college and wherever you go it will be an amazing new experience.
UNO has a very diverse community. There are over 100 student organizations to fulfill the needs of students and there are 1,000 international students from 119 different counties. There is no single stereotype are even countable stereotypes at UNO because there are such a diverse group of students.
A useful tip you can use at any college is get to know your professors. Talk to them, ask them questions, and make an effort to get them to remember who you are. This is great for reference letters later on for filling out applications/scholarships. So far I've really enjoyed my criminal justice classes because I have a huge interest in that field, but usually the classes I least enjoy is when I don't understand the teacher. I really advise trying to look up reviews about your professors before you sign up to take their class so you can learn which teaching style you work best with. Students can study for a little bit and study for weeks, but it depends on the person and the class. Class participation is not required for most classes but it does enhance your experience/understanding in that class. Academics can be very competitive but it's like that all colleges, some more than others. I am a sophomore this year, and I've already changed my major twice. Currently it is criminal justice, but I plan on going to medical school. I don't normally spend time with professors outside of class but I do visit them at their office hours if I have any questions. The academic requirements for UNO are reasonable and is not impossible to accomplish. I'm definitely a person who likes to go beyond, so on top of my pre-med classes, i have a criminal justice major and a chemistry minor. The education you get at UNO will without a doubt enable you to get a job in your future. It's just how YOU can push yourself to get there. Try not to drop any class if you can, and for the first two years try to stick with general classes, unless you absolutely know what major you want. Experience new things and figure out what really interests you and maybe you can have a career in that area someday.
The most popular organizations on campus are Maverick Productions (Mav Pro) and Greek Life. I've always wanted to be on a committee for Mav Pro but I haven't had time. They put on a lot of fun events throughout the year such as a comedy & poetry night, a jason derulo concert, a concert for "Rock Away Cancer", and so much more! I am involved in Greek life and I absolutely love it. We have social exchanges with other fraternities and organizations on campus, we volunteer at retirement homes, have fundraiser events for our philanthropy, play intramurals, we have our own hayrack rides, and formal dances. I definitely recommend going out for greek like because it can be a life changing experience. You may not think it's for you, but you won't know until you try it. Our athletic events are always filled with students and their parents/families, especially for hockey. There are musicals that our theater departments puts on throughout the year, and we have fun traditions such as welcome week and homecoming week/parade. People are partying all the time because it's college, and it doesn't necessarily mean you have to drink. It's good to go out and meet new people! It's the same across the country, but sometimes it's nice to stay in and have a movie night with you friends. The dating scene is pretty much the same wherever you go, even though some places may be more romantic than others, you still get to meet new people and experience numerous personalities.
I lived in the dorms my freshman year of college. It was a truly unique experience. I ended up getting paired with some great people. I lived with 2 foreign exchange students, one from India and one from China, and a girl from Blair Nebraska. The dorms are apartment style housing. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, and shared living room. With four people living in one area the kitchen cabinet space can become limited, but I e-mailed my roommates before I moved in to find out what they already had so that I didn't bring the same things ie: a microwave, a can opener, silverware. I just made sure that it was okay with them that I share their appliances. It only took me 5 minutes to walk to each of my classes in the mornings, and there are laundry facilities either located in your building or a few yards away from the building; it depends in which dorm you are located. The dorms can be kind of costly. It is 500 dollars to live in a dorm, but keep in mind that is including all the amenities of basic cable, water, electric, and heat.
What?! You have never heard of UNO? That is impossible! Im just kidding, it's quite possible that UNO isn't on your top ten list of most popular colleges in the nation. It isn't even the most popular college in Nebraska. UNL would probably hold that title and I am going to attribute their football team for that. UNO truly is a great school though. I love it here and I would never transfer. UNO is easy to navigate and it's not so big that you get winded walking across campus (unless of coarse you are late for class). All of the buildings are well kept and renovated. All the technologies available to students are cutting edge. If you need help in a certain course, free tutoring is offered in almost every subject. The campus is beautifully landscaped and very well maintained. We offer a variety of classes adhearing to everyones interests. Professors have office hours, and always make themselves available to you. The school is strategically located in Midtown Omaha, so you are right in the middle of everything. There is easy access to malls, restaurants, down town, and the expressway for when you need to get to West Omaha. My favorite thing about UNO is the clock tower in the middle of campus. Its beautiful and it plays theme songs from movies and musicals in between class sessions.
This question seems to pop up a lot. I know that in high school stereotypes were well known and almost everyone fit into one, but in college that is no longer the case. Everyone is too concerned with their own futures to care too much what their outer image says about their personality. By the time you get to college it's understood that everyone is their own person. I have had to work on group projects with a variety of different types of students. There is no stereotype that would accurately depict the image of my school. The only descriptive word that would accurately describe everyone at UNO is "student".
We have 2 food courts associated with campus, one on south campus and one on north campus. I have only experienced the food on north campus, but it's pretty good. They have healthy options and that fat greasy junk that I love so much. There is a sandwich place, a pizza place, a hamburger place and an Asian food place as well. They offer an assortment of bottled beverages and on tap options. UNO is a pepsi campus, so don't walk around campus aimlessly looking for coke, because you won't find it my friend. I was lucky to find Dr. Pepper. If you aren't looking to eat a meal there is a convenience store in the student center that sells snacks and random other items. There are vending machines in most buildings for those kids who can't go through a class without some kind of caffinated beverage at their side (thats me). If you aren't interested in eating on campus then there are plenty of fast food and sit down restaurant options scattered in various locations located just off campus. I can remember walking to Qdobas mexican grill with my roommates my freshman year in a snow storm just because we were hungry. Clearly we weren't thinking. I got my nachos though! I see Jimmy Johns all the time being delivered on campus. Jimmy Johns is a sandwich place for those of you who live under a rock.
