Tell us a little about yourself…
My name is Cole Evans. I am a local musician, fisherman, and admissions representative extraordinaire. I love to play with my Sheep-a-doodle (half sheepdog, half poodle), Libby, and my cat, Rockefeller. If I’m not in Omaha, you can find me in a state park in Western Oregon.
What is your favorite thing about UNO?
My favorite thing about UNO is how much opportunity it provides. A mentor faculty member once told me that whatever you need out of UNO, it can provide. If you are someone who wants to break out of your shell, UNO can provide that. If you are looking for a fresh start in school, UNO can give you that. If you are someone who is looking to connect with people and the community, that can be done as well at UNO. Whatever you need, it can give you. Also, UNO basketball is the absolute best! GO MAVS!
What do you like to do most in Omaha?
Eat food and enjoy music! Omaha has so many delicious restaurants. Nikola’s is a great Italian place downtown and Blackstone has a bunch of amazing restaurants. Nite Owl is a favorite of mine there (try their Totchos). The music scene in Omaha is incredible as well. There are open mics all over the city on week days where you can listen to local music. On the weekends, there is always a show at The Slowdown, Sokol, or even Baxter Arena.
What piece of advice do you offer to students going through the college search process?
The greatest piece of advice I could offer students is to get your money’s worth out of college. Students often pay for perks that they will never end up using while attending the school they choose. Figure out what each college offers to get you connected to other students and to help you grow as a person outside of just a degree. What resources does their library offer? How can the student gym help me better myself? Are there places I can go to get help with my resume’ and career search? When you are looking for a college, consider the degree you will get as well as the experience and then take advantage of the resources!
