UNL is a beautiful campus; surprisingly large and chock-full of activities to do. However, being that it is a research-based institution, it feels as though some of its academic body could be stronger. My experiences at other Class-B universities has taught me the funding of a school does not guarantee its quality of education. They also poorly manage their money towards the arts and non-STEM majors, totaling $11 million in budget cuts across multiple non-STEM colleges last year. The Greek life, while fun, is quite exclusive, and there is an obvious disconnect between the Greek communities and the rest of campus. Overall, it is not a bad university, but there are certainly areas of improvement- especially in Arts/Literary Education, campus community involvement and fiscal decision-making.
Overall, UNL is a very good school. It is a big campus, so there are plenty of people to connect with and talk to. Knowing the party scene as an underclassman can be difficult if you are not in Greek life. On the flip side, the academic challenge has been rewarding. And there are many resources for students, like mental health services, free legal advice, and general well-being seminars. GBR!
The campus, especially East campus, is very calming and pleasant. The library is a really nice place to study with coffee nearby. I live off-campus, so I can't say anything about campus dorms and living. Dr. Kautz is the best Gen. Chem. professor! I extremely recommend him. For the Forensic department, it's a bit disorganized. That disappointed me a bit as looking at the program it appeared like a great program. Despite that, Dr. Reil is a lovely professor. She is my favorite professor of the forensic department.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is a great place to go to school. Don't get me wrong: it definitely has its flaws. But in the grand scheme of it all, you accept the place that you feel comfortable in, and there are about 25000 students who would say they have accepted it here.

Looking back at my first year of college, one of the first things I would tell myself as a high school senior is to purchace your textbooks (at least the expensive ones), from somewhere other than the bookstore on campus. They really pump the money out of you and I could have easily saved over $1000 on books alone. I also would have told myself to not get a seven day meal plan and only stick with the five day one. I always went home on the weekends and I never used my meal plan on those days so I could have saved some more money there. On the academic side of things I would advise myself in high school to study extra hard and try and score good on the ACT. I was one point away on my ACT from getting a free ride from the University so I definately would advise that. Besides those few things the biggest things I would have told myself would have been to relax during that first year and have fun, because college only comes once so you should live it up and explore, and find ways to meet new people.
They are fun, outgoing, and strive for excellence.
The campus is all close together so you have to walk everywhere. In a lot of places the sidewalks are cracked and unlevel so you have to watch your step!
The football team
There are so many opportunities here and there is a club or organization for everyone. I have found so many great things to get involved in and I have met a lot of great people doing it.
If there were one thing I would change, it would be the walking distances! Especially from Harper, Schramm, Smith!
University of Nebraska-Lincoln is a large 4-year College. The campus is fair-sized and one can get to one side to the other in about 15-20 minutes. The classes are great and so are the students.
Everything is easily reachable by foot, and if it is not, the school bus will take you where you need to go. You are given a bus pass at the begining of the year so no matter where you want to go, it wont cost you any money to get there. The people here are also very kind, it must be a midwest thing, but I have found the most friendly and approachable people so its very easy to fit in at a school like this.
A Husker fan
-Some professors know my name, some.
-Favorite: SPAN 319, Phonetics
-Worst: ACCT 201
-I study every single day.
-It depends on the class, but class participation is at a minimum.
-I think my major is not adequately explained to incoming freshman. I was lucky that I found it (International Business).
-I rarely spend time with my professors outside of class.
-The academic requirements change CONSTANTLY! It's frustrating. I will graduate with almost 30 credits that won't be applied to my degree.
-I feel that yes, the classes I have taken at UNL are definately geared torwards getting a job.
The honor's program was very appealing because of the small classes and thesis you do your senior year. The greek life and the campus's appearence was also a big plus.
Football! UNL is known for their football program, as well as the thriving social scene. I also brag about the Greek System here on campus, as well as the ability to get help finding a future job.
-The most populare groups are either the Greek system or ASUN.
-I'm involved with CBA Student Advisory Board, a teaching assistant, volunteering as a notetake for students with disabilities, etc.
-Athletics rule the school. Football is HUGE! It's the state's pride and joy.
-My closest friends are people I knew from high school, met during study abroad, and serve with in the Army.
-2 AM, I'm studying.
-I party very rarely. I choose not to drink so I stay away from that scene.
-I used to be Greek...not anymore.
-What did I do last weekend? I was at drill for the Army.
A lot of farm boys and girls from small towns, everyone is a huge Husker fan, we hang out in cornfields
This stereotype is absolutely not true. I have not had a problem fitting in or getting involved. My class sizes are appropriate and professors are easy to communicate with through e-mail and office hours.
I love my school, but if I had to name one thing that frustrates me I'd have to say the parking is pretty limited. I love the motorcycle parking up front, but if its rainy or snowing and I have to drive my truck, I have to park very far away.
I cannot judge a person or say they cannot attend a college of his or her choice. God is the only one who can judge a person. No matter if they sin or not God forgives and ask us not to judge a person.
Go to a community college first and take online classes for the intro stuff. While you do that, get a full time job and you will have a lot less debt.
Party school students and no
The sports scene at UNL is crazy especially for the football team. Tickets for the games go on sale in March the year before and if you don'tget on right away than you are stuck not going to a game or you have to buy one from another student who can't go, usually for a higher price tha the face value. Downtown Lincoln and the UNL campus are crazy with all the fans that come to support the Huskers. Nebraska Cornhusker football has sold out all of its home games since before 1968 and there is no end in sight.
I had always dreamed about going to this school bu I doubted at first that I could get in which is why I chose to go to a school in South Dakota. My family moved down to Nebraska a few months before I started college and so I was left all alone in South Dakota. After a year of being up there I decided to give it a shot and to see if I could get into UNL. I had decided that if I got accepted I would transfer and if not I would stay at SDSU. I got accepted and started my sophomore year at UNL.
