4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There's a lot to do in Las Vegas and a lot of diversity going on. You just have to find the right places.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Fast Wi-Fi in all the building and plenty of computers to go around

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The campus has a pretty chill and less party-like atmosphere

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: UNLV Runnin Rebels is what the university revolves around

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments off-campus are pretty close to the school and at a reasonable price

3 College Junior

Computers: Most people bring their own personal laptops. There is no T-mobile service on campus....sooooooooo annoying!

College Junior

Nightlife: I would say that a party on the strip would be better than a sorority. There are some great local bars that cater to the college too.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The only things I ever hear about are the football team which is not very good and then the basketball team which is much better.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I think the student health center is very nice and they have a lot of things they offer.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I think campus housing has a fun social atmosphere and it is at a convenient location. Cost is probably average.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I believe school policies are fair and enforced as they should be. professors have a strict attendance policy but they are also understanding of certain situations.

4 College Junior

Academics: I love how all of my classes are in the same building. The work load is not to stressful and I have had some really great professors. With a education degree, the university places you with the school district for student teaching so you do not have to stress about trying to find your own placement and they require 2 semesters of student teaching to really prepare you for one day having your own classroom.

3 College Junior

Transportation: There is a public transportation depot on the far south side of the campus. Other than that I have not noticed any other kind of convenient transportation. I very rarely see Taxi's

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live about 30 miles away from the university. I personally would not live anywhere near the college because its dirty and gross.

College Junior

Drug Safety: I have not noticed a drug scene at my school. I also do not notice peer pressure going on but I am not your typical 18-22 year old college student. I am older, married, and have children. I have noticed every now and then an alcohol bottle or beer cans in the parking garages and there are plenty of bars off campus but within walking distance.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Las Vegas is a transient town already that I see all sorts of different races, cultures, economic backgrounds, etc. They have alot of international students as well due to the Hotel programs. It makes it much more interesting!

4 College Junior

Majors: I want to work with families and children. My career goal is to work for Child protective Services or some sort of Social Work where I can do counseling.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into my program was easy for me because I started at the Community College. It had been about 14 years since I had gone back to school to starting at a community college was a good choice for me and it really prepared me for transitioning easier to a major university.

5 College Junior

Weather: Its never to cold to have to walk across campus and it does not rain very often. Just about the time when the weather starts to really heat up, school is out for the summer. I love the Las Vegas weather!

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: just from what I have experienced from parking enforcement. I believe its strict.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: even though its a step by step process, when one thing is completed other questions are raised. when the form is received I believe all the required documents should be asked at once. the process takes longer than it should because they keep asking for different documents every week.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I can't rate the campus housing since I do not stay in campus.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I am not involved in the nightlife aspect of the school so I really don't have any input.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I have observed diversity at UNLV.

4 College Junior

Academics: I just got accepted in the nursing program, its a great program and I am excited to be part of the UNLV nursing school.

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.
