"I truly enjoyed my time at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. This university provides many outlets, tools and resources, and academic support. They strive to help the students, and they genuinely want you to succeed. Going into my freshman year, I had no idea what I wanted to study. I was very lost on what major to choose, so I panicked and chose marketing. I quickly discovered this was NOT the program for me. I met with an advisor, took a test that helped me determine my likes regarding school subjects, and also met a lot of students along the way that guided me. Eventually I found my way, and in a theatre class, I figured out I wanted to go into film studies. I was interested in casting, and decided I would be a casting director. Funny enough, I'm now starting a graduate program in School Counseling, but I do not feel sad that I'm not doing what I studied as an undergrad. I truly LOVED being a film studies student. UNL has a great film and theatre program. It's so hands on, fun, creative and unique. I loved analyzing films, and discussing underlying meanings of films. It was so educating and enlightening. Even if you're not into film or theatre, UNL have so many different majors to choose from. They have an amazing business college, architecture college, and education program. There are so many more to choose from, but this University has a lot to provide to students. It is so worth looking into, and touring."

"Its a great school, but sometimes you can feel like a small fish in a big pond. Therefore it would be beneficial to join an organization or something that can make you feel as if you have a community on campus. Also, it is essential to branch out and meet new people. I kept my dorm room open when I was studying because it would give people a chance to come in and meet me."

"You will thrive at the The University of Nebraska-Lincoln if you possess the independent drive to do so. Personally, I was a member of a learning community that provided an abundance of resources, such as mentoring, tutoring, and career guidance. I feel that my success at UNL was largely due to my learning community. If you do not have such a community or sorority/fraternity to support you, it would be difficult to thrive at UNL. I would advise any prospective student to search for a community that is a good fit for them upon attending UNL."

"UNL provided great research opportunities for me. I was able to work in the Law and Policy lab with Dr. Eve Brank. Because of my participation in the research lab and the research projects, I was able to present my findings to several conferences in California. I loved my experience and would recommend to any undergraduate student that is looking into attending graduate school."

"The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has a highly ranked education program, and I feel fortunate to have been able to attend. I greatly appreciated all of the professors who were deeply invested in their students' success. I never felt like I was attending a very large university--my class sizes were relatively small, and I was able to connect with other students and my instructors on a daily basis. I still have positive relationships with many people I met in college, including my instructors. I especially appreciated the wide variety of classes that were offered to meet my course requirements. I was able to take classes that sparked my interest, and that still serve me well in my career today."

"After completing two years at a community college, I was able to seamlessly transfer to the University of Nebraska Lincoln (UNL). Not only did UNL make the transfer process simple and stress-free, but I was given the first opportunity to enroll into classes that I needed and find the ones that corresponded with my schedule early on. I felt that my Advisor was supportive, understanding, and listened when I explained my interests and skills. Originally, I enrolled in the Business Administration program, but I did not feel completely intrigued with how my future would possibly play out. That is when my Advisor assisted in guiding me toward my ideal career pathway of becoming a high school business educator. To me, one of the most beneficial amenities that UNL has to offer is their Career Services. With their help and guidance, I was able to create a strong resume and cover letter and was given multiple opportunities to participate in mock interviews with valuable feedback at the end. After networking and meeting teachers from other colleges and states, I have realized that UNLs practicum and student teaching experiences are superior to others. UNL goes out of their way to place you with a master teacher so you are prepared mentally, physically, and academically to teach after graduation. I am thankful that I had such a great experience at UNL and that I have been successful in my career this far."

"At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln it was the best of both worlds. The large university atmosphere with division 1 sports teams and the most beautiful campus. With a small college feel for each student in their individual college. The teachers college provided a safe space for me to meet with friends, study between classes, or eat lunch on the way across campus. The colleges within the university give each student the opportunity to find their own path on a campus with 21,000 students trying to do the same."

"College is great if you know what you want to do, but with the rising cost of college I recommend to anyone trying to figure out what they want to do to try the jobs first (as an intern or through a shadow day) and/or start with community college classes to get a feel for it."

My personal experience in my pursuit of my undergraduate degree has been an outstanding journey with many opportunities and resources that has aided in my accomplishment of acceptance into veterinary school. The University of Nebraska (UNL) provides students with excellent resources to include academic and personal advisement, tutoring options, and graduate and career services. As a military student as well UNL provides specific resources for military students and their families. This individual attention has helped me and countless others be successful in their academic careers. These services include financial aid, academic, and personal assistance. UNL also has a specific center for military and veteran students to access these resources as well as area to study. These resources make UNL an excellent choice."
