3 College Freshman

Diversity: Pretty average across the board for diversity.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I love that we have students here from all fifty states and even students outside of the country. It is interesting hearing all of the different perspectives students have. We have clubs for different religions, political beliefs, and sexual orientations. The university is very welcoming to everyone's perspective.

4 College Junior

Diversity: It appears that students at the University of Nevada, Reno are very accepting. There is not a ton of racial diversity on campus, but the students on camps are accepting of others from different racial and/or cultural backgrounds.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There are quite a few people from all over and different economic status'.

5 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There can definitely be more diversity and it gets better every year but i have found a diverse group of friends. I love how open and accepting people can be here. I have many friends of different religions, sexual orientations, races, and economic backgrounds. Our student government also puts on great programming to promote acceptance and celebrate diversity on campus. Im pretty lucky to be surround myself with great open minded people and most of my friends don't tend to have many problems on campus, I'm sure they happen but for the most part it is a very accepting university.
