Chartered just two years after Nebraska achieved its statehood, the University of Nebraska at Lincoln is the oldest and largest university in the state. And while it may be best known for its football team—the Cornhuskers, which have been a fixture at the Big Ten Conference since its inception—Lincoln has a lot to offer its students outside of athletic pageantry. In fact, with 150 undergraduate majors and 20 professional programs, it's hard to think of something it doesn't offer. And if there's any doubt that this is one of the best universities in Nebraska, just look at the ROI: a $329K return on PayScale.com proves that UNL is more than ready to "show you the money."
