Do you have any special advice or tips for applicants? Be yourself in your application. The application is a great way for us to get to know you better!

What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots? Omaha is a really great city. You have many of the amenities that you would find in a much larger city but Omaha is very approachable and easy to navigate. I really love the downtown area of Omaha.  Zio’s pizza is my favorite pizza in the Old Market and must always be followed by ice cream at Omaha’s own Ted & Wally’s.
