Have you thought about attending graduate school in Nebraska? In addition to the colleges and universities, Nebraska offers more miles of river than any other state. The Cornhusker state boasts 87 state parks and its terrain allows for lots of fishing and hunting.
Nebraska has a 2014 population estimate of 1,881,503, which is a 3% change from 2010. 28.5% of the state has a Bachelor’s degree or higher, and the median household income is $51,672. Lincoln is the state’s capital and its largest city is Omaha, which is located on the Missouri River. The state is crossed by many historic trails, and was explored by the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The California Gold Rush brought the first large numbers of non-indigenous settlers to the area.i
Manufacturing is a large part of Nebraska’s economy. Firms making electronic components, auto accessories, pharmaceuticals, and mobile homes have joined such older industries as clothing, farm machinery, chemicals, and transportation equipment.ii
