I LOVED going to college at the Univ. of NE- Lincoln! I am from the East Coast, so it was very interesting to me. I liked the relaxed atmosphere on campus, Greek life ( You HAVE TO be in a sorority or fraternity! It is a MUST on this campus!!! ), the friendly people on campus and the great students! I had never seen a State Fair before & that was amazing. You will experience many agricultural events around the campus. If you don't mind the cold weather ~ you will love NE! It was -15 one time and my stick shift snapped off in my car! No joke! It is CRAZY cold there! So, buy a thick Winter coat before September!!!
Very large and impersonal. Outside of your classes (provided you have some smaller classes), you're truly just a number. Some people might like this feel, others might not... personally, I'm indifferent about that part. One thing to note is that you can feel relatively safe on campus. The largest "threat" you'll run into is a new peddler/solicitor who hasn't been kicked off the premises yet, and while I certainly wouldn't call those occurrences "few and far between", they aren't really that common either. UNL also has a ridiculous relationship with Wells-Fargo which can be quite inconveniencing at times if you aren't with that bank.
Study hard and try and get a scholarship. The suite style dorms are very nice. I would recomend this college. I am very happy with my choice of school. A good thing about this college is the small classes. A bad thing is the campus isn't near as beutiful as some others. watch out where you park you car because they give very expensive tickets.
At first arriving, UNL Campus can be confusing and hectic. The majority of the staff and students are impersonal and reserved. The college is imposing on small town students and plain for big city kids. The sororities and fraternities are snobby and unnecessarily immature. The campus is safe and the unpleasant people can be avoided. All in all it is a nice place
When P.T. Barnum donated money to Tufts University, he did so on the condition that the school's mascot be named after his beloved elephant. The Tufts University mascot has been the "Jumbos" ever since.
