On a side note, parking is always going to be an issue. It is over priced and if you buy a parking pass, you are not guaranteed a spot.

University of Nebraska was a perfect school for someone who wants a small class at a university. I only had huge classes in my first couple of freshmen courses, then it went to 20-25 students. The greek life is a great place to get involved especially since you have to go to events. It is nice to be in greek because it gets you involved in other activities around school too.
