I recently went to visit University of Las Vegas, and I completely fell in love with it. Did you ever go to a place and completely knew that that's where you belonged? That's how I felt here. I felt at ease, placate, and at home. This is where I want to be for 4 years, and wouldn't regret my decision! I've seen some of the professors and know quite a few of the students that go here, and noticed how much they enjoyed their job, and I like how both the students and the professors are interactive with one another, making the learning environment a whole lot better. From the astonishing views, down to stunning library, I am utterly in love!

I like the different majors and programs this school has to offer. The school is also very diverse. Majority of the professors are pretty good. I think the school needs to help students with finding scholarships and making sure they are in the right classes before the deadline to drop classes. The food at UNLV is okay, they need more options though. I think the school should also have more events for everyone to do.

My overall experience at school so far feels hectic. In a good way though. There are always events going on, on campus and I receive emails almost everyday about games and up coning events. My school is unique because everyone is really friendly. Strange as it sounds everyone seems to want what's best for each other. My school is also very diverse. There are so many different ethnic students whether there are people from Hawaii, or even outside of the country, my school is the place for diversity. I would choose my school all over again. Even though I just transferred, I can already see a major difference and how much more excited I am to come to school each day.
