3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Eating at the DC is very hit or miss when it comes to the food selections. Sometimes there is nothing good to eat other than salad or cereal, which can get old after awhile. The staff is very nice and definitely has to endure a lot of unnecessary complaints. You also, have to be careful about the times you decide to go to the DC because you may not be able to find a seat and a to go box is a one time fee of five dollars or if you decide to leave at eat somewhere else, you essentially wasted a meal swipe. The food on campus outside of the DC is very good and has a wide variety, however they close fairly early during the week and some are not open on the weekends. If you choose not to eat at the DC or anywhere else on campus, there are a ton of places nearby that you could walk to if you do not have a car.

Campus Housing: The best part of living on campus at UNLV, is the size of the dorm rooms. One of the biggest factors for me deciding what college to attend was the dorm rooms. Some of the other college campuses I toured had dorm rooms so small there would barely be room for one person, let alone two. They also had communal bathrooms at the end of the halls, that were gender neutral. All of this was very concerning to me because I have never had to share a room with anyone before and sharing a room barely big enough for one person could cause each of us to become claustrophobic and possibly start fights. Also, running down the hall to use the bathroom in the middle of night, seemed very inconvenient. But, the dorms at UNLV are a great size. They have plenty of room for two people and the best part is that you share a bathroom with two other people on the other side of the suit!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I visited the financial aid office multiple times, I struggled so much all the documents are confusing. It was all new to me, I went just to get clarity about each one. Every time I went to the office it took me about 2-3 hours either the lines were too long or each individual ahead of me had a lengthy visit.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The benefits of living on campus were numerous, everything is close by and you're always secure. I never felt unsafe on campus. There was always security and residents assistants looking out for the residents.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not typically go out in Vegas.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not apart of the partying scene, it is not my thing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining is really diverse, I can always pick something different.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness was well managed I always felt safe as well.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food establishments on campus are pretty good overall.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports teams on campus are not praised as they should be. I think if the students balanced out what they cared for between education, sports and personal life. People have more interest in the athletics department.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UNLV is not the best school nor is it a bad school. The education is not very reflective upon an individual.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UNLV provides numerous amount of internships and jobs for every major. It helps us students because we need hours in oder to graduate.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a lot of people who come from all over the world just to get the cheapest education here at UNLV

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus amenities are alright, the buildings are either brand new or really old. They are in the process of modernizing campus life, so it isn't that bad.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys & girls on campus keep to themselves. Most of them won't talk to you unless you are in a sorority.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: UNLV expects students to pay a ridiculously amount of tuition and on top of them pay for disgusting food. Yes, some of the fast food chains are great to eat sometimes, but we pay more money for something we didn't order instead.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The top places I would eat off campus were In N Out, of course they're open late and have the best hamburgers and fries ever- the cost was decent, but never received a discount! In N out was also right next to UNLV.

Then there is chipotle, they are also located next to the school- they are a bit pricey but the food is worth and HUGE!

Third was café Rio, their price is reasonable with the amount of food it comes with- which is also right next to UNLV!

There are so many places to eat in walking distance by unlv- which aren't too expensive and when you just need a break from the college food and/or miss the times of the DC, SU, and POD! (:

Off-Campus Housing: I am not too familiar with the living options around campus..

But there are a ton of little houses and apartments around UNLV just for students... Since they are for students I am sure they are reasonably priced. Finding a roommate is easy too, there is always someone around here looking for a roommate- which makes rent cheaper. (: There are always options!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I was never a party person..

But a ton of people always went to the Frat and sorority parties! I always just hung out in the dorms with friends...

There were also a few hotel parties I was invited to!

I think they do have a positive impact on student experience because you socialize with other students, you get a break from school, you are having fun, and you are with a bunch of other people that are in the same situation as you! You HAVE to party at least once in college!

4 College Freshman

Administration: The RA's did take noise violation, drug use, and alcohol use very serious!

Of course they did not want us to get into trouble ever, they would be the first ones to help us out in the best way possible but did not tolerate any dangerous situations to themselves or others. They did genuinely care about our safety, therefore abided by all of the rules!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process was easy and I did not have any hassle with it!

The only problem was that I didn't receive nearly enough as I think I should have, considering I am the only one paying for my school, I don't have my parents income. Growing up I was always told my financial aid should be high, considering i don't have my parents in my life!! But, I was grateful I was able to get something from financial aid.

The only tips I could think of is to always seek help when filling out your Financial aid- to ensure you are doing it properly, it can be confusing and extremely frustrating. Also, always do it on time to prevent delays and mistakes! (:

Campus Housing: At first, I was dubious about living on campus! My first semester (August 2014) I did not like it at all!

After coming back after winter break, I LOVED it! I became more outgoing, socialized more, started working on campus, met so many amazing people! When I moved out in May 2015, I was actually extremely sad to leave behind the dorms, roommates, friends, and just being on campus. I came to love it more than I ever thought I would. Everyone was friendly, it was as if everyone was family since we did interact with one another daily. Living on campus was also SUPER convenient- I was NEVER late, I could walk to class, work, and to my friends rooms. Overall, I loved living on campus, the environment, the staff, and people around. If I didn't live on campus I would not have made as many friends or memories as I did. My roommate also became my best friend and we talk everyday. (:

The ONLY downfall was the dining commons- they never had good food.... especially since we were all paying over 3000 dollars a semester for it, I would expect decent food and hours that accommodate students schedules.... I could not make it to the DC when I wanted to with my college schedule. Anyway.. The food would be burnt and we would have the same thing everyday, but if you live on campus you HAVE to purchase a meal plan, so that is what we were stuck with.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: If I knew then what I know now, I would have definitely attended a different university.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: It's mostly fast food places around campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Great for a workout, or so I've heard. Really nice building.

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.
