Find Community on Campus
When it comes to student engagement, Nebraska ranks in the top 10% of all colleges reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. Huskers develop real friendships that lead to meaningful collaborations—from participation in over 500 student-run clubs and organizations to research partnerships that span the globe. When you get involved on campus, you’ll get the chance to bond with people who have different perspectives and backgrounds, giving you insight and helping you develop the skills that employers demand.
Learn to Solve Problems in the Real World
Through meaningful, 1-to-1 relationships with peers and professors, you’ll have constant access to new people, ideas and experiences. More than that, you’ll get to work with your peers on creating real solutions that matter to real people. Huskers take pride in what we accomplish because our work makes a difference in people’s lives—from feeding the world, to seeking a cure for HIV, to reimagining early childhood education. Let’s build your vision of the future together.
Collaborate to Co-Create the Future
An important experience on your path to success is finding the right people to support you. Nebraska is a place where you can find people who will push you to be your best. Great things happen when experiences and ideas collide—we do big things here because we do them together. At Nebraska, you’ll create meaningful relationships with your peers and professors and have a constant flow of new ideas and experiences. Best of all, you can make friends and prepare for your future career at the same time.
Live and Learn With Your Peers
Making the transition from high school to college is easier when you're surrounded by peers who share similar interests and goals. Learning Communities (LC) are groups of students with a shared major or interest area who live in the same residence hall and are mentored by an upperclassman. Joining an LC gives you an instant community of people who like the same things, and can help you make friendships that'll last through college and beyond.
Study Abroad and Experience Another Culture
Studying abroad is a great way to develop leadership skills and get real-world experience solving problems by immersing yourself in another culture. As a student, you will have opportunities to stretch your strengths through programs like service learning abroad. Nebraska will provide you with the support you need to make it happen. From finding the right program to helping you find scholarships, our Education Abroad Office will help you through it every step of the way.
Get Involved: Make Friends and Give Back
Nebraska’s campus culture is strong thanks to our diverse and heavily involved student body. One of the easiest ways to meet people who share common interests with you is by getting involved with an on-campus club. With over 500 Registered Student Organizations, Nebraska has clubs for almost every interest, from sustainability, to photography, to hip-hop dance. If you can't find something that excites you, bring people together by forming your own club.
Expand Your Network With Internships
Internships are must-have experiences because they help you develop professional skills through mentorship and learning by doing. Lincoln’s vibrant startup community is home to many fast-growing businesses, making it the perfect place to find internships and make connections with future employers. Organizations like Lincoln Young Professionals can help you polish your professional skills and form bonds with peers with similar goals, so you’ll have the support you need on the way to your dream job.
