2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If you are looking for a school with a great Greek life; keep looking. There is some Greek at UNLV but it isn't too noticeable. If you want to find it though it isn't too difficult.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Probably the much better housing options for students that don't live at home.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: With one exception you shouldn't ever have problems with the campus police assuming you aren't running around naked drunk with a weapon through campus. That one exception is parking. Parking permits are strictly enforced, rain or shine, day or night, fall, summer or spring. Get a parking permit and learn where you can and should park and you'll be fine.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is college campus housing. Staying on-campus for your freshman year will probably be helpful socially. After that you'll probably want to look at moving in to a cheaper place near campus.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It is very hot during the summer here. Expect to see a lot of skin walking around campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It is Las Vegas and it is in the middle of the desert. You either love or hate living in Las Vegas.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You are in the middle of Las Vegas. You can find almost any kind of food you want within a 10 mi radius, though it might get expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The main dinning hall will probably be the main place you if you live on campus. Half way through the semester you will probably get pretty bored of it though. Value wise it is not too good but if they force you to buy a meal plan, might as well use it.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If you wait until the start of the semester to go over financial aid you are going to have a bad time. If you file your FAFSA early and go meet with one of the Financial Aid advisor in person you will find it quick and easy though. You can also meet with an advisor online through Skype on Friday's but it is generally easier just to meet with them in person.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The vast majority of the student are Las Vegas locales so not much diversity there. Due to the proximity due The Strip though it is pretty easy to diverse groups of people.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live near the campus and do not know anyone who does. As such I can not comment of this subject.

College Junior

Campus Dining: I do not eat on campus so I do not have anything to offer to this subject.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Having grown up in Vegas I love it. The atmosphere is very fast paced but a lot of our 'tourist' attractions also offer student discounts so that is a plus. We have a lot of things that we can do and see and there is a big variety to choose from.

College Junior

Health & Safety: I do not live on campus so I am not really sure what happens when I am not there. I feel safe and have never had any issues.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Living in Vegas means tons of options for whatever we would like 24 hours a day 7 days a week

4 College Junior

Facilities: I would like more green lawn and comfortable places to hang out - outdoors and indoors. Wish there were more activities not involving sports.

4 College Junior

Diversity: UNLV is pretty diverse. I have friends from at least 5 different countries, and of different sexual orientations. I think everyone is pretty tolerant of this diversity,

College Junior

Majors: I can't comment on something I haven't done yet.

College Junior

Majors: I haven't had one yet, but I would very much like to find one for the next two summers.

College Junior

Greek Life: I am not qualified to rate the Greeks since I have no experience in such matters.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Again, I live on-campus, but would like to live off-campus. Having a hard time finding a place that is good quality, close, and safe. - and inexpensive.

College Junior

Overall Experience: I have only been here one semester, and I have a couple years left, so I haven't really gotten into career prospects or internships yet.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed all of my teachers. They have been very nice and I have learned a lot, even in the core courses, which werent of that much interest to me.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I have to say that again, I haven't had much interaction with the police. Once one helped me find my car, and he was nice. I don't party so I don't know about the drinking etc. I am in the UCC, and they are pretty quiet. I know there is a lot of visitation in the dorms, but I'm perfectly fine with that, and am glad they are lenient.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I am not a sports fan at all, so I really wasn't qualified to answer these questions. I went to one basketball game last semester because a bunch of my friends dragged me there, but that's about it.

UNLV is an up-and-coming school. In the past few years alone, the University has made great strides with its academics and facilities. The Boyd School of Law ranks high nationally, even though only having been in existence ten years. UNLV just opened its doors in Singapore where students from the William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration can attend for a year of study abroad. In the Entertainment Capital of the World, UNLV offers the Entertainment Engineering and Design Program where disciplines in engineering and the fine arts are interwoven to help create the spectacular shows on the Strip. The College of Business is one of the 6 percent of business colleges in the world to be accredited by the Association of the Advance Collegiate Schools Business, representing the highest standard of achievement for business schools and management education. It’s also one of the select few business schools to receive the dual accreditation for both the college and accounting program.

The faculty members are not only known for being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and as a Pulitzer Prize finalist, but many still work in their field and are willing to help a confused student in need and propel them into the real world with as much knowledge as possible. Though there may be the bad egg here or there, UNLV is filled with caring and helpful faculty and staff members who actually believe that they are there for the students. The facilities at UNLV have been revamped and built from the ground up to provide innovative, new technologies for the student body. The Science and Engineering building helps the university to move forward with research and The Lied Library and Recreation and Wellness Center are student favorites.

Located in a large city, UNLV has an advantage to offer its students, faculty, and staff—opportunity. With Las Vegas overflowing with residents and expensive housing, business is booming. And because Las Vegas is such a transient city, jobs, internships, and other career advancement opportunities are almost always available—and in all types of career paths. With the credentials and the sheer possibilities UNLV and Las Vegas present, students tend to have a sweet spot in their hearts for this place.
