What Bert Has To Say About Lincoln Metro Area


As the capital and higher education center of the state, Lincoln is a livable, small city with a diverse economy. The largest employers include state government, the University of Nebraska, Goodyear, and smaller businesses in printing, insurance, and pharmaceutical manufacturing. The university dominates the landscape and the economy, adding 22,000 students and a healthy set of college-town amenities. It is a major sports draw for the entire state and a larger region of the Midwest, particularly during football season. There are two other small private colleges.
