4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some of the professors have correct educational background, however not all of my teachers were professors. There is a variety of courses at this school including a pizza making class!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am an early childhood educator. My advisors have done a great job in guiding me step by step towards my degree and job choices after I receive my degree. I can tell they work hard to find each student a career after school.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: One thing I love is the safety at my school. If you are walking alone and need assistance to a class or your care or just feel unsafe, there is a 24 hour police number in which an officer will come to assist you!

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I have only seen the outside of the campus housing, from what I can see the building seems to be okay. There is spaces for parking and biking. There is also a small park for exercising.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I debated on joining the greek life in my freshman year, however I decided to join a variety of clubs instead. From what I can see I did know notice there was much volunteer opportunities in joining the sororities at my school.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I always see lots of school spirit from our athletics team!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas is diverse, educational and inviting. The school is welcoming with many different clubs to choose from. There are many events as well such as premier which is an event at the beginning of the year to invite all incoming and returning students. My favorite experience was winning the Victoria Secret Pink Nation Party. Singer/songwriter Iggy Azalea came to our school for a full concert! It was awesome to see the entire school work together to win a contest for all of the students! UNLV was not my first choice, however as each day goes by I fall more and more in love with its atmosphere. The educators, students and curriculum come together to enhance my success.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The gym is really beautiful, nice and clean, one of the better things about UNLV.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Buildings need to be remodeled at UNLV. I have taken classes where students are crammed into tiny lecture halls. Bathrooms are gross at many buildings.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some of my professors were better than others. Only a few of the professors that I have had so far are actively engaged and excited to teach their subjects. If my professor is not excited about the topic, why should I be? Especially when teaching large sized lectures, I believe that the professors should make more of an effort to get ALL students involved in the lecture, not just a couple.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The only problem with campus safety is that the campus is very close to the strip. At night it is a lot better to travel in groups on, and around campus because there is a big homeless population.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in Dayton, the newer dorms. They were very clean and the furniture and building was well taken care of compared to the rest of the dorms on campus. It is right next to the gym and a close walk to Thomas and Mack. My only problem with these dorms was how far away they were from my classes. I am an Athletic Training major so my classes were mostly located at the back of campus. It would take me about 15-20 minutes to walk to class everyday. This is a long time considering how small the campus is compared to other colleges.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is not a big thing at UNLV. Those who participate love it, but those who do not don't care. The frats and sororities do not really participate on campus.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Over the years, UNLV sports teams have become less popular. It seems as though Las Vegas residents have lost faith in the sports since most have developed a losing streak.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Based on my experiences so far, i would not choose to go to this school again. UNLV does not create a college environment. Most of the people that interact with only chose UNLV because of the low cost of tuition, myself included. it is definitely a commuter school. There are not many campus activities that are offered to participate in like most other colleges. I go to class and go home, thats it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes are meaningful. The professors are focused and helpful. The courses are tailored to fit the students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Having a degree in the field of my choice is helpful in terms of getting a job which will lead to a life career.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is safe, and that makes me feel safe as I go day to day.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Well, Greek life is low-key, and I don't know much about it or experience it on campus thus far.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are a big deal so the support, participation, spirit, and performance is amazing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some of my favorite experiences so far would be attending charity and business events for my business course.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: always see campus police on campus

UNLV is an up-and-coming school. In the past few years alone, the University has made great strides with its academics and facilities. The Boyd School of Law ranks high nationally, even though only having been in existence ten years. UNLV just opened its doors in Singapore where students from the William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration can attend for a year of study abroad. In the Entertainment Capital of the World, UNLV offers the Entertainment Engineering and Design Program where disciplines in engineering and the fine arts are interwoven to help create the spectacular shows on the Strip. The College of Business is one of the 6 percent of business colleges in the world to be accredited by the Association of the Advance Collegiate Schools Business, representing the highest standard of achievement for business schools and management education. It’s also one of the select few business schools to receive the dual accreditation for both the college and accounting program.

The faculty members are not only known for being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and as a Pulitzer Prize finalist, but many still work in their field and are willing to help a confused student in need and propel them into the real world with as much knowledge as possible. Though there may be the bad egg here or there, UNLV is filled with caring and helpful faculty and staff members who actually believe that they are there for the students. The facilities at UNLV have been revamped and built from the ground up to provide innovative, new technologies for the student body. The Science and Engineering building helps the university to move forward with research and The Lied Library and Recreation and Wellness Center are student favorites.

Located in a large city, UNLV has an advantage to offer its students, faculty, and staff—opportunity. With Las Vegas overflowing with residents and expensive housing, business is booming. And because Las Vegas is such a transient city, jobs, internships, and other career advancement opportunities are almost always available—and in all types of career paths. With the credentials and the sheer possibilities UNLV and Las Vegas present, students tend to have a sweet spot in their hearts for this place.
