Education in Nebraska Colleges

The gateway to the west, as Nebraska is known, sits among the Great Plains and is an expansive wash of prairie lands. It has been somewhat subject to rural flight, but agriculture is still thriving, with ranches and farmland clearly visible with a drive along Nebraska's roads. Residents of Nebraska are known as cornhuskers, in tribute to their farming roots; this is also the name of the state university's athletic teams.

Despite its rural roots, Nebraska houses two large cities in Omaha and Lincoln, with the latter also being the capital. A significant number of businesses call Nebraska their home, including the famed investment outfit of Berkshire Hathaway, ConAgra, and TD Ameritrade. The job outlook of Nebraska emphasizes the need for agricultural engineers, surveyors, and financial professionals. College education in Nebraska is largely a function of qualified public universities.
