School Description

The original Omaha University was founded in 1908 in the Kountze Place neighborhood of North Omaha. The first classes were located in the Redick Mansion, once at North 24th and Pratt Streets, from 1909 through 1917. As the university was established a few blocks north of the Presbyterian Theological Seminary, most of its early faculty were recruited from Seminary teachers, as well as the faculty of Bellevue College. There were 26 students in the first year, most of whom had graduated from Omaha Central High School.

        I was one of the first students to be a part of the Summer Institute of Business, English and Culture. A summer immersion programme that the local Fulbright Commissions across Europe and the State Department of Education created. I had the great pleasure of studying at UNO and experience the wonderful student atmosphere they had to provide. The lecturers and staff involved were excellent and very helpful. For me it was a life-changing experience and hope that others get to experience it as well.Faizan M. Syed

        I learned English at UNO in 1979. I came back to UNO to continue studying on my second engineering degree from 83 to 85. I worked at UNMC from 84 to 97. I also earned my Executive MBA from UNO in 97. UNO grained ethics, discipline, and dedication to work in its graduates. I teach at couple universities abroad and find no ethics, no discipline, and students choosing the easy way out.I thank you UNO and my faculty for who I am.

        During my 33 years as a financial service executive in Omaha, I had a chance to hire dozens and dozens of people. All other qualifications being equal, I would choose a UNO grad, for two primary reasons: 1) generally speaking, UNO grads had a better work ethic than most. 2) I suppose that might be because a greater percentage of UNO students paid their own way and worked one or more jobs during school, and so were used to working hard to get ahead.
