Most Helpful Review for University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The absolute only reason why I only put 4 stars is because as being a freshman I had to complete some general study classes that I felt was impractical for my major and felt I didn't benefit from. The classes designed for my major I would without a doubt give a 6 star.

    UNL is great for students who like larger sized classes and who don't need to be micromanaged. UNL has a place or group for everyone so that nobody is left out. It is like its own little community within Lincoln.

    I would rate UNL at a four currently because when I needed support my point of contact and mentor through my scholarship, they were there the whole way. They encourage me to keep trying and ensure me that I would get a hang of everything especially since it was my first semester. Personally I need to feel like a have support from the college I'm attending and they definitely met my requirements.

    Overall the university does its job as it should. There are many options and possibilities for those who want them. It has big research school resources but a small school type feeling.

    University of Nebraska-Lincoln has a beautiful campus and I love the fact that it's like a town inside a city. They are great with scholarships, so far I have the regents which is full tuition and 2 other minor ones tucked under my belt. They have a great honors program that has its own housing AND will pay for your books.

    Very big campus but there are many opportunities to get involved. Living in a small town before getting involved helped me to adjust to college life here.

    Nebraska is a great place to study. If you like large schools with a great atmosphere then it is a good fit for you. Just be wary of the financial aid office because they give many students a lot of difficulties!

    I absolutely love it at this school, the people are great the atmosphere is unbelievable and the academics are tough and competitive. The only down side is the weather is not exactly favorable for most of the year. But overall this school is amazing.

    I would recommend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to anyone; the high profile athletics and rigorous academic courses mesh nicely with the moderate sized town of Lincoln. The campus has a big school feel with midwestern values, and is conveniently laid out and accessible to both students and Husker fans. Because Nebraska is such a rural and farming community, it is great to attend a school that is the number one passion of those who live in Nebraska yet the school is diverse and accounts for all walks of life.
