5 College Senior

Scholarships: They were super friendly and helpful. They staff helped me fill out the forms and get things underway. If it wasn't for their help, and the financial aid I wouldn't be entering my senior year.

4 College Senior

Facilities: there are plenty of areas to go study, or relax, or hang out.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There are lots if things to do once you venture outside of the downtown scene.

4 College Senior

Academics: Some professors are wonderful, and you try to take as many classes as they teach. Others are so bad you try to avoid them at all costs. The schedules are great, and the workloads aren't that bad.

5 College Senior

Academics: I love my major. I switched to it a few years ago. It has helpful teachers, a wonderful curriculum, and a wide diversity of subjects.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: They try to warn people about assault, but there are some fraternities that have bets going on to how many girls they can get if they get them drunk enough. So, not too great on that scale. If a person does report it, it is usually her word against theirs. Just like in the real world. I don't go to any parties of any kind because of this, and neither do my friends.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There is a very large diversity, with students from all over the world. It is wonderful meeting them. There are activities to showcase the other nationalities, and special events. It makes things interesting. Same goes for the other areas of diversity.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: It is cheaper to buy a hamburger than a salad, by around $4.00. They have some vegan/vegetarian options and some gluten-free. They are better than some places, but could improve.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I am non-Greek. I am not there for the social scene, I am there to learn. They have activities and such, but they do not harass those who are not members.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I am not going to school to meet people. I am going to learn.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: They try to make sure that the campus is safe for everyone.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Its good for the athletes, and the few who go. But its not promoted for the other students. Some don't even know the facilities exist.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of organic and vegan areas. they are a little pricey at times, but the food is good. otherwise tis fast-food restaurants or the casinos.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: it is only good if you go in with other students to help cover costs. those closest to the school cost a lot more than those near downtown. and those that are downtown don't feel very safe.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus strictness is already known. The students for the most part already abide by the rules; I don't see much disobedience or chaos. The police station is in the middle of the campus and they have campus student cadets that also help. I know for students who live in the dorms may run into problems when bringing alcohol into their rooms; especially if they're under the age of 21.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Coming from a large city and moving to Reno, it was a big change. I learned to grow to love the tiny quirks of the town. I stay close to the school and found that the atmosphere is really friendly. I love the adults who have such a pride in the University. It is a laid back town filled with history and new adventures.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm involved in Greek life and it really helped me get out of my comfort zone. It's a great way to meet new people and get involved with not only school but with the community. It gives you more sense of pride and belonging at the school. I have plenty of friends that are not in Greek life but only because they have other extracurriculars they're involved in. They don't think anything different of me but were surprised when I decided to join Greek life. There are housing options available for those Greek members in the Panhellenic and Interfraternity Council; not all members are required to live there.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: During the freshman and sophomore courses, the class sizes are quite large. They do decrease however, when you start progressing into your major courses. There are a variety of classes, I like the idea of the PEX classes to help the students stay fit while earning credits. The teacher assistants are there to help when you have questions on the professor's lecture. I'm in business, there's a business lab that I take advantage of.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: For business there are a lot of job fairs and marketing opportunities. I haven't partaken in a lot of these actives so I'm not so quite sure of the quality. I do have a lot of friends and classmates in business fraternities that do enjoy their time.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The Highlands is pretty popular for students. Sterling Sierra is new and already full of students. Both are conveniently close to campus.

Facilities: It's a beautiful campus with welcoming buildings and an inviting Student Center.

College Junior
