I am a student at the University of Missouri - Columbia. While many of my Husker friends will probably take offense to this article and consequently my response to it, I appreciate your opinion. After leaving Nebraska, I realized how cult-like the state really is, raising closed-minded individuals who are rarely exposed to any diversity of people, thought or experiences. There’s a lot more to life than just Husker football, and there are a lot of wonderful places to live outside of area codes 308 and 402. As an out-of-state student, I can 100 percent back up many of the points you made. It is extremely difficult to move somewhere where you know NO ONE and NOTHING, literally starting from scratch, and I can understand her struggle to fit into a culture that is simply not her. So kudos to you, Kayla, for stepping outside your childhood box to expand your life experiences, for I truly believe life starts outside your comfort zone.
P.S., I never really liked Runzas myself.
