"I loved the variety of classes offered by the History Department and the quality of professors at UNK. I took a wide variety of classes, taught by experts in the field. I also really appreciated how many research opportunities were available. I was assigned to interview a veteran. That assignment really opened my eyes as to how many wonderful untold stories are out there."
