UNO is a metropolitan university that boasts a large, diverse international campus community. Nearly 1,700 international students come to UNO each year, representing more than 120 countries. Through weekly organized activities – everything from amateur sports to board games to picnics in the nearby park – U.S. and international students interact, share cultural insights, and explore the entire world right on UNO’s campus. Engaging the broader community is important, so international students frequently learn and make friends while serving local nonprofits or visiting area businesses.
