Jayson from UNO
The university of Nebraska at Omaha is a fantastic school. It is full of happy, welcoming students and helpful faculty. The faculty want their students to do the best that they can and the students here love to learn.
Cecilia from Omaha, NE
Wonderful, compassionate, inspirational, and hard-working professors create an atmosphere that transcends the before-thought of what college was suppose to be like, and creates a place that you enjoy to better yourself instead of a societal ritual that we must all pass. The mathematical system needs improvement and the advisers need more education and experience, however those are the only negatives and can be surpassed if one looks and talks around with other classmates, who are always willing to aid one another. Lastly, one's tuition can obviously be seen in use by the amazing buildings that have been erected; from technologically advanced science laboratories to amazingly stunning work-out facility with an indoor/above-ground track and rock climbing area, this college can give anyone the ability to reach their lives' dream with a little bit of hard-work and determination.
Alexander from Omaha, NE
I love my current Masters program at UNO and feel that I have learned a tremendous amount of information and have had the opportunity to establish wonderful relationships with fellow students and professors. The SLP program helps students establish strong relationships with the community and help make connections for the future. The school in itself is very well kept and there is an array of activities to keep students engaged.
