What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
Leaving for college can be an intimidating next step of your life. Make the best decision of your life and live on campus in one of UNO's suite style dorms during the first year of college. This will help you to interact with other people your age and will give you the perfect platform for getting involved on our wonderful campus.
Jayson from UNO
Put yourself out there and take risks!
Cecilia from Omaha, NE
Ask other students, preferably upperclassmen, for advice on what classes to take, and especially the professors of the basic classes because the advisers are not always sure what they are saying, and don't always give the best advice.
Alexander from Omaha, NE
If you are an incoming freshman ensure that you live in the dorms and get involved! Making connections with fellow classmates and establishing close friendships is what can make or break our college career. Get involved it looks great on Resume and opens the door to meet people you would have never had the chance to meet before.
Rachel from Omaha, NE
If a first year student I suggest on-campus living as it offers an amazing atmosphere and a chance to meet new friends. I also suggest picking one advisor to deal with in you college as it can be often confusing dealing with many.
Stephanie from Smithville, MO
If you aren't from Omaha, schedule a campus visit! During required orientation you will get a tour of the campus and an overview of the school, but if you are debating between schools, take the time to visit. Also, keep in touch with older students so they can show you tips on simple things from buying cheap books, building a good schedule, and having an successful first semester. Most importantly, get involved!! Even if you don't live on campus, join an organization so you make the most of college.
Jenae from Omaha, NE
It's o.k., if you don't know what you want to be when you grow up...that's o.k.! You will find your niche within your first year. There are people from the President down to the Student Affairs office who have wonderful open door policies, so don't be afraid
Tamara from Omaha, NE
I would advise prospective students to apply for on campus housing. It's a great way to meet people.
Also, I would say that if you want to graduate in four years, you should take more than 12 credit hours per semester. In addition, it would be a good idea to take summer classes.
Katherine from Dakota City, NE
Always get involved soon!!! That is the one thing I can tell you, whether it is by joining a fraternity or sorority or going to a weekly meeting with a club, it just allows you to have the chance to meet new people, and possibly make connections with those that can be very beneficial later in life. It also promotes leadership, so if you are a shy person, by putting yourself out there, you are giving yourself the chance to influence others, which is a great felling, trust me on that. It also creates long-lasting friendships.
