Local Atmosphere: I love Reno. If you like outdoor adventures, this is a great place. Hiking, snowspots, watersports, camping, its all here plus the events in the community are incredible. Arttown in the summer is a must, beer crawls and wine walks every month, preformances and concerts are nice and so many places to eat. We are close to San Fran and the bay and have a great airport. It is beautiful and a great college town. Everyone supports the Wolf Pack.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Reno is awesome. There are many festivals, like Hot August Nights, ArtTown, and Street Vibrations. Downtown is beautiful, whether you're by the casinos or the river, and there is plenty to do. I love just walking around town and people watching. Ice skating down town in the winter is fun! People here love the Wolf Pack, football and the students.

Local Atmosphere: There's a lot of bars and nightclubs around campus, which may cause students to have rowdy behavior.
