3.87 Average Rating

Founded in 1869, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is the oldest university in the state and flagship of the NU system. Nebraska is home to nine colleges conferring undergraduate degrees. In addition to classroom facilities, the NU campus hosts The Sheldon Museum of Art which houses a large-scale collection of 20th century American artwork as well as an arboretum and botanical garden. For sports fans, Nebraska fields 20 men’s and women’s athletic teams and the football Cornhuskers draw so many fans to home games that NU’s Memorial Stadium would qualify as the state’s third largest city.

The university of Nebraska Lincoln is an up-to-date college with exceptional recreational and educational facilities. I enjoying be a student here. However, as an out-of-state student I would like there to have more financial aid options.
