5 College Junior

Academics: I like this place for the most part.

3 College Junior

Academics: Anthropology is not crazy popular so we lose out on some things.

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.

4 College Freshman

Academics: UNR is a rising star in the world of academcs and I am excited to be a part of it
