I really wouldn't come to UNO if you want a college campus full of spirit. UNO advertises how everyone is "Go Mavs," but that couldn't be further from the truth. No one cares about the teams besides a small number that go to the football and hockey games. No one cares about life outside of class, so it's hard to make friends or really get involved in activities, or to find out what activities there are to get involved in. That's probably what I dislike most about UNO: there just isn't any warmness to the school. It's cold, distant and pretty closed off. The academic program is okay, but it isn't anything overly challenging and you are surrounded by students who don't care that much about learning. Add to the fact most of the professors are arrogant and unhelpful and UNO feels like advanced high school instead of college. Omaha isn't a fun place. It doesn't have any kind of college-town feel(Austin, Boulder, Madison, etc.) or urban-city vibe (L.A., D.C., Chicago, N.Y.C., etc.) It's kind of a quiet, boring place with lots of families and yuppie Creighton students that act like tools. The Old Market gets old after a while, as does dinner/bowling/movies/drinking . I'm transferring to a smaller, liberal arts college in Chicago next semester, but I think UNO is a good fit if you want to get your degree and don't want or need the other parts of college life.
