3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic facilities are great for the athletes. However for regular everyday students, we are over shadowed and cannot get into the offered inter murals because they are kept at such small sizes.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: We have amazing school spirit. The student section to any game is always filled to support our athletes. If students aren't part of varsity, we always hold intramurals. A lot of people sign up for those too.

4 College Junior

Athletics: It's especially great any time UNR plays Las Vegas. There's quite the rivalry!

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: I hate how much money goes to them

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I loved supporting the Wolf Pack and one of my favorite things about Nevada is the school spirit and Pack pride. I participated in intramural sports and loved it. Many friends were on club teams and they really enjoyed that. Football and Mens Basketball overshadow most sports, but they don't disappoint often.

School Spirit
Nevada gear is commonly worn on campus, and students often find themselves at football and basketball games, where drunkenness is a requisite part of the experience. Students don't have a huge amount of school spirit, with homecoming and Mackay Week events chronically under-attended. Greater spirit is lent to Greek life events and drinking. Students do not often travel to away games, aside from the annual game against UNLV, which is held in Las Vegas every other year. For that game, people travel en masse to see our football team defeat the Rebels.
Getting Tickets
Tickets are free for students, aside from conference games. Students go to the box office in the Joe the week before the game they want to attend and scan their student ID card because each student is only allowed one ticket. You can also get tickets on the day of the game by showing up at the stadium itself.
