    As is the state, it is made up of mostly Nebraska football fans. The University is quite more diverse than the rest of the state, which is still heavily European/white. It's not a party campus at all and gives a peaceful/laid back feel with still a strong push towards academic excellence. It is easily one of the most friendly campuses in the whole U.S. (campus, city, and state)

    Perfectly decent. Not extravagant, but not run-down or inadequate either. Our science labs were generally quite good, more than adequate for undergrad instruction but not quite state-of-the-art for advanced research (except in certain areas).

    I was in a fraternity so I didn't spend much time in the dorms or dining halls as a student, but I do currently work for a nonprofit on the campus, not employed by the University, and the students I meet with enjoy the dorm life. There is a mix of both traditional dorms and the newer, apartment style dorms at the University. I personally hate the the newer apartment style dorms, since they ruin students' chances to meet people outside their room and only encourage seclusion and loneliness for students who already struggle making friends or who are from outside the state. Classrooms and nice and becoming better and better with UNL becoming a Big 10 school. I know little of the campus' labs

Questions & Answers

Who are the notable alumni?
1 Answer
  • University of Nebraska boasts notable alumni who attended school at each of its campuses. Lincoln graduates include television legend Johnny Carson, opera singer Barbara Hendricks, Berkshire Hathaway chairman and CEO Warren Buffett, and United States Senator Ben Nelson. Among graduates from the Kearney campus are New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain, author Stephen Lawhead, and actor Harry Northup, who appeared in movies like The Silence of the Lambs" and "Taxi Driver." Notable Omaha alumni include U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel, Emmy Award-winning television meteorologist Dick Fletcher, and astronomer Penny Sackett. It still sounds really boring. Can you spice it up with information about their competition? How much can they win in prizes?

What is the campus setting like?
1 Answer
  • Each of the University of Nebraska’s 500-acre campuses has a little bit of something for every taste. While some students choose to live in traditional dormitories or apartment-style housing units, others want to connect with their peers based on academic interests by living in NU’s learning communities. In these communities, students study together, provide support to each other, and even go on field trips. Even students who have not declared their major can benefit from a learning community. The University Exploration community allows students who are undecided live together and explore their career options through activities like job shadowing. And when they’re not in class or making the friends that will last a lifetime, NU’s students can blow off steam at the Outdoor Adventures Center. You can rock climb or even sign up for a California surfing trip during spring break.. After participating in these adventurous workouts, students can relax their minds and muscles with body work at the campus Massage Therapy Center.

What are the online learning and extension/adult learning opportunities?
1 Answer
  • The University of Nebraska Online Worldwide is where students take courses or complete entire degree programs. Many classes are taught entirely online, while others are blended, meaning that there are portions of the class that are conducted online and others conducted on-campus. In most cases, students can participate in classroom activities whenever they choose, however, some courses do require that students attend lectures online at the same time that campus students do.
