4 College Sophomore

Academics: It is extremely fun to be in the Social Work major here at the University of Nevada, Reno. The unique aspects of our program range from the friendly staff, easy to follow curriculum or welcoming social work community that the study body has created here. The workload is not too heavy compared to other majors and students should be able to follow the 15 to finish guidelines with out any interruptions if you start working towards the program your first semester your freshman year. The curriculum is straight forward and if you meet with your advisor as suggested everything is mapped out for you. Our facilities on campus are wonderful. The campus is constantly improving with new technology for students. I am not in the stage of my educational career to enter in an internship but job opportunities are all over campus and the university staff is welcoming.

Academics: Pretty good academics, the workload isn't huge, but it's still challenging.

5 College Freshman

Academics: There are so many ways the school tries to help students succeed in their classes. The professors are always helpful during their office hours and there are tutoring centers on campus to help too. The Knowledge Center is a great place to study, and you can always go to a higher floor for a quieter work environment. Academic advisors really help with registering for classes and making sure you are on track for graduation.

5 College Freshman

Academics: As a journalism major, my college's sole focus in journalism. All the professors are there to help us and we are really submersed in the field. I love knowing I can look at the six Pulitzer Prizes we have in the college. Everyone really tries to help us figure out what part of journalism we want to do.

4 College Junior

Academics: So far, I have had great professors. My workload is heavy, but that's not unusual for a nursing major. I like all the people that are going through the program with me. It's been a good experience so far.
