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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Overall Experience: There seems to be a positive reputation surrounding the school, so employers take that into consideration.

Diversity: Primarily white, unsurprisingly.There tends to be a decent mix, though, because many students come from the diverse Las Vegas.
