Why Doane?

The best reasons to come to Doane come from the heart, from the words of our graduates as they prepare to leave.

Doane was the right place they say, because of:

  • the quality professors who cared.
  • the advisors who knew them from day one until graduation.
  • the close-knit community who welcomed and supported.
  • the doors Doane opened.
  • the flexibility that allowed them to keep their careers and family first.


Here are a few reasons that drew them to Doane:

CHOICES: Doane offers 12 undergraduate majors. Convenient class times and short 8-week terms provide the flexibility you need.

EXCELLENCE: We consistently place among the top Midwestern schools in nationally respected rankings.

SUPPORT: Doane provides unparalleled support in academic, career, and financial advising.

AFFORDABILITY: Our programs are outstanding and affordable. Doane also participates in federal financial aid programs and employer tuition reimbursement programs.  

HISTORY: Doane College turned 140 in 2012, and our adult undergraduate program turned 30 years old. Doane College has campuses in Crete, Lincoln, Grand Island, and Omaha. We are Nebraska’s first liberal arts and sciences college and we’ve never stopped striving to be the first, by many standards. 

COMMUNITY: We are an extended family available for guidance. We give you personal attention the minute you step in the door. We recognize that your experiences and knowledge enrich learning.
