Overall Rating

If you can not get a degree here, you can not get one anywhere. I completed my associate's at a community college and finished my bachelor's at UNO; I am waiting to be accepted into graduate school at UNO for professional administration. I worked full time and went to school 3/4 time, the evening and online classes make it possible for someone with a busy life to obtain a degree, if they are willing to put in the effort. This is a great university for the working adult and military veterans. I had a lot of trouble with other college VA departments, but I had no trouble at all with the VA department at UNO.


Overall Rating

I think this is a great school as long as they have the major your want to get. The housing is my favorite thing about the school. It is nice apartment style housing, and I am looking forward to living on campus.
