For the most part it is a wonderful school. Hands on. The teachers go out of their way to help you to succeed. The administration has helped so much with funding and scheduling that I was very impressed at the ease of enrollment. They do have a few standards that I think are impractical and separates them from regular college. All tattoos must be fully covered. So if you have a bunch you are better off going to a traditional school. No colored fingernail polish. No false nails(understandable) No died or fake hair. No piercings. Granted, some go to far. But they would never get away with these rules at a traditional college.

Still they are excellent in education.

Living in Vegas also known as "Sin city" there are alot of things to do here that is if you are over 21. The scenery is great, you see flashy lights almost everywhere you go. The strip is where everything and the place to be on the weekends to have a good time with friends and family. Places to see such as casinos, dine-ins, movie theaters, malls, etc. Not to many cultural events that go on only from time to time. There are many concerts and night clubs to go to. The safety portion isn't all that great depending on which side of the town you live in. We don't really have a sports team thats national just college UNLV REBELS.

The best thing living on campus is that an individual is able to save money, meet and socialize with new people. They don't have to worry about driving to places in which they can save gas. Everything they need is in campus such as: book store, gym library. They are not far away from their classrooms, everything is walking distance. The worst part is that not having a car, getting tired of eating the same food over and over again. Not being able to see whats it like outside of the campus and see other people and or try new things.
