The DTP thing is to hook up incoming 1L's with 2L's or 3l's that can answer questions and give advice. It's not a big deal, but if you want one I can send an email to the girl in charge and see if she has anyone left who offered who didn't get hooked up with anyone. Or I can unofficially provide advice. I didn't sign up for a 1L sister/brother b/c since I live in Omaha I can't always make the events. It made it hard as a 1L to connect with my 3L big sister, so I avoided it. Of course, now I'm feeling guilty for not being more helpful.

Anyhow, both those areas are great. I actually live in Papillion and get on the interstate at the Harrison street entrance. Your commute from 120th would probably be pretty similar. Are you a non-traditional student? I am, and was pleasantly surprised at the number of folks in the same situation as I am in when I started.

Best of luck! How exciting to have only the summer left before you begin! Of course, I only say that b/c I'm not heading into 1L year! What a tough one 9 months. Bearable, but tough.

Happy Post-Memorial Day Everybody,

Thanks, Danni!

Does anyone happen to know if there are lofts for rent in downtown Lincoln? I went to look online, but found only one building that consisted of lofts, and they were only for sale, not rent, which leads me to believe that this question would be better answered from walking the grounds. So if anyone happens to know, I appreciate it!

Lawson is fantastic. His torts class can drag a bit, but there's no better prof for taking the time to care about his students during 1l year. I really liked him a lot. He is also awesome about really laying it out. He doesn't hide the ball and is very straight about what the elements of each tort are.

Work's class can be difficult, but hang with him.Things will come together but you have to trust him and his style. He's hilarious as well, a good way to start your Monday.

Medill has a mind so brilliant it can be terrifying. She's amazing and you're lucky to have her. I didn't have Kirst, but I know it's a tough class.

If I were you I would try to avoid living in downtown Lincoln. Not only because it'll be closer to main campus (and therefore rife with undergrads) but because you're farther from east campus. Once the weather turns it can be especially nice to be close to campus, because then friends can make sure you have a ride (or can catch the bus) so you don't have to drive if you are not used to snow/ice.

A good idea might be to call the campus and ask them for advice. I really like Becky and Vicki in the office, they are both super sweet and helpful!

Also, I read in an earlier post of yours that you are into Buddhism. I'm hoping we can meet once you get here and you can dish to me what it's all about. I have a basic knowledge from western civ class in undergrad and it resonated with me. I've gotten really into yoga and meditation this summer, and I'm looking for something, I'm not really sure what.

I have been reading everything you that has been posted here. There are no real lofts in Nebraska that i know of unless you go into downtown omaha. I just moved here from Long island NY near the Hamptons. I dont miss the traffic of NY I love Omaha and Nebraska in general. Some people can be rude but so can some people from NY and elsewhere. I had ideas in my head as well cowboys, corn etc flat nothing to do. So far not true. I am older but I have a college age son. There are many people here in your and his age group. Both UNO and UNL are decent size schools. The traffic here is not like southern calif. I expected a 2 hour commute, being from NY, for a job interview that was 17 miles away it took me 20 minutes. I think the change will do you good. Your here for school. The spring and summer are warmer then I am used to on Long Island. They will be cooler then you have in orange county. I found people here to be very friendly and helpful althogh slower paced the you and I are used to. I have spent time in orange county it will be a bit of a culture shock. In the not too distant future Omaha and Lincoln will be like dallas/ft worth or Minneapolis/St Paul. Lincoln is the capitol of Nebraska so its not all that remote and removed like people think and the ever growning mass they call Omaha is a very short drive away. The down town and just on the other side of the missouri river in council bluffs iowa are the casinos. College football is big here. There are huge companies headquartered here. pay pal, Info usa, and all the insurance companies and well as warren buffett estate, Gerald Fords home was in Omaha. You little honda will be right at home. Im in the car business and I did not expect to see exotic cars here like there are in Orange county and from where i came from in the Hamptons, but there are. People have more money to spend here because housing is so so inexpensive. My housing costs dropped in more the 1/2 moving here and the pay scales are close. If you like to eat steak Nebraska beef is the best in the world. Home of Omaha Steaks

This is just so comical! I started researching Lincoln a few days ago, and thought it was too BIG for us!
I don't get it- if you have private and public school options, shopping options, restaurant options, and medical options, what more does a person need? From what I've read about Lincoln, it has everything a person could want and then some. I guess that's what's great about being raised in a small town- you live a simple life and you learn to be content with simple things.

Okay, this question may be seem out of the blue...but is everyone in their early
20's (or older ) MARRIED in NE? It sure seems like a state that marries young--I just somehow got that impression. I say this because I recently spoke to two girls my age from the school for admin purposes and they're like married. I don't know, it seems unsual to me. I'm starting to go to weddings now for some friends, but they're few and faw between, and these friends are older. When the girl was 1st telling me about her wedding, she had such a little doll voice, I was so surprised, I blurted, "What?!! You're married?? You're so young! I'm waiting until I'm 45!". I was met with deafening silence on the other line. Then, "uh, don't you think 45 is too old to get married?"

This issue isn't a concern of mine by any means--hahha--but I was just curious and found it different from what I know. Thanks guys, and sorry if I got the wrong impression.

Yes, I could agree with what you said in the bolded text--it looks very pretty on the surface. But, it is cliche and it's a very old school way of thinking. Perhaps you are speaking for an older generation. Why would I, or anyone for that matter, be content with the status quo, always? There's always more out there.

Actually, I just turned 34 and have been told many times I'm one of the most down to earth people they know.
You really seem to have this attitude about you. I get a sense you think everyone in Nebraska is just a dumb hick; maybe even anyone that lives in any given small town in America. Some people marry young; some do not. I know people who married later in life and had major marital problems because they were so used to doing everything THEIR way, when THEY want to do it. They are used to being independent and and self-centered, because they don't have to worry about anyone else. I also people who married too young, and can't hack it either.
I just don't appreciate you downing everyone who disagrees with you. Old school? Maybe. But old school isn't always a bad thing- old school families stayed together and led happy, simple lives.
You sound like you need to get over yourself, and I would strongly suggest to you not to move to Omaha if it's so beneath you and your standards. I'm guessing no one there would want you looking down your nose at them, anyways.

By the way, that's the problem with your generation- always worried about "having fun" and "being content" on your own. And you wonder why a lot of you are using drugs and ending up divorced.
