Student Life

Student Life

Doane is a great place to live on the way to your degree. What’s it like? Safe. Scenic. Close-knit. Busy. Challenging. Fun. There’s so much to experience – you choose!


Crete & Beyond

From our 300-acre campus arboretum, to Crete's business district down the hill, to a short drive into Lincoln, students from across the globe find the area a comfortable place and a place where you can get out of your comfort zone. 

Life @ Doane

Why do almost all students live (and eat) on campus all four years? Community. There’s always something to do and people to join in:  60+ organizations, 8 fraternities and sororities, intramurals and Tiger athletic teams.

Student Services

Your education is our focus. We back that commitment with resources – like a first-year success adviser, Writing Center, Career Center, Health Services and much more. All this within a safe, secure learning environment.

Leading in Leadership

No matter your major or pastime – leadership is in there. Hear from world leaders on campus and put your own skills into action. We even have a residence hall dedicated to leadership.
