Nebraska is located in the heart of the country with
easy access via air, rail and highways to both coasts.
Its 77,000 square miles span the Missouri River on the
east and the neighboring states of Wyoming and Colorado
on the west. Urban centers are Omaha and Lincoln, both
located in the eastern part of the state, and most of
the rest of this vast landscape is rural. The state's
population is 1.6 billion.
With four distinct seasons,
Nebraska is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Boating,
camping, cross-country skiing and hiking opportunities
are everywhere. The changing landscape of the forests
and prairies reflects the changes of the seasons.
Rolling sandhills, fertile farmlands, open skies and
majestic tree-lined rivers are the treasures of this
great state. In addition to these natural wonders,
Nebraska is blessed with a cultural heritage that is
rich in tradition and diversity. From opera to blues,

festivals, life in Nebraska is a celebration of the arts
and spirit of the prairie.

Choose Nebraska for a
The oldest college in Nebraska is Peru State College,
located just an hour from both Omaha and Lincoln in
southeast Nebraska. It was founded in 1867, and is one
of three state-supported colleges in rural Nebraska that
focuses on teaching and learning. The University of
Nebraska system has campuses in Lincoln, Omaha and
Kearney, as well as a teaching-based medical center and
a center for technical agriculture studies. By featuring
larger campuses and an emphasis in both practical and
applied research, the university experience is valued by
hundreds of international students each year.
Private colleges, many religion-based, are located in
cities and small towns. Although most have a liberal
arts focus, Creighton University in Omaha is nationally
acclaimed for its College of Law and College of
Medicine. Nebraska Wesleyan University, in Lincoln, is
consistently ranked among the top small liberal arts
institutions in the nation. The state's community
college system serves mostly rural Nebraska, with the
exception of Metropolitan Community College in Omaha and
Southeast Community College in Lincoln. The two year
programs offer both technical and academic courses, and
are often the institution of choice for students seeking
a low-cost education for the first two years before
transferring to a four-year institution.
