4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are numerous groups for a variety of ethnicities, and at least one major group for the LGBT movement. People are very accepting and understanding here. There isn't a lot of flexibility for political beliefs, though.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The propaganda can be over-the-top and cheesy, something I personally don't like very much. However, the activities and benefits offered and the flexibility is really top-notch, especially the gym.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I think there needs to be better communication between students and the University administration; courses need to be more available and Advisors should be more flexible with troubleshooting student problems related to class restrictions.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek Life shows a lot of presence during "Rush" but are rather mellow during the rest of the year.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: UNLV has a great varsity sports presence and a strong student following.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I am transfer to UNLV and did not fair well in my transfer. It has taken me a lot of time to find helpful allies in the school's administration and get my education back on track. UNLV is definitely a commuter school and many of my classmates are also working adults and parents, UNLV generally offers a wide variety of classes to accommodate the variety of students that enroll at UNLV. If I could, I would have stayed in California to finish my degree and would not have transferred, I feel that the lack of communication regarding classes offered and advising has severely held me back.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every professor is different. That being said, I have had both amazing professors who absolutely love what they do as well as terrible professors who simply cannot explain things clearly or do their jobs well. Overall, however, I think I am relatively satisfied with the professors at UNLV as well as with the courses they teach.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A college degree can be what a job rides on or mean next to nothing at all depending on the career and employer. Overall, a degree from UNLV isn't half bad. Since UNLV isn't an Ivy League school, however, it's title of "university" only goes so far. Additionally, it's not hard to get accepted through the admissions process and UNLV is a well-known party school. In short, since UNLV is by no means prestigious, a degree from UNLV may only help so much in the career world.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus police services (DPS) are really great. Their response time is so fast that it's remarkable. Although walking around campus (especially at night) can make me feel a bit uneasy because of the area UNLV resides in, I feel a bit calmer knowing that we have a dependable campus police force.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Overall living on campus at UNLV is alright, but I see one glaring flaw: 3 out of the 4 residential halls do not have kitchens. Additionally, residents are not permitted to cook aside from the only school-approved microwave model outside of these exclusive kitchens (located in the UCC complex). Because of this inability for most students to cook, we are forced to eat unhealthy food almost consistently with our only options consisting of fast food, frozen microwaveable food, or unsafe food from the Hazel M. Wilson Dining Commons. At the "DC", as we call it, the food is known for causing food poisoning as well as sometimes containing bugs. The food is additionally poor in flavor and quality and the DC is not very cleanly.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Although Greek students come in a variety of personalities, a good portion of them (especially those in sororities) come off as snobby girls or guys who just want to party and belong in some collective group. I haven't observed too much in the way of community service efforts aside from fundraisers from them. Usually I just see them hollering and partying, blasting loud music, or strutting in packs (all wearing their sorority or fraternity gear of course).

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Although I am not an athlete myself by any means, from what I can observe it seems that UNLV takes great pride in its athletic programs. Not only does it showcase its teams on billboards on and around the Strip, but it also encourages its students to take part be it on the courts or in the audience.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UNLV is not an Ivy League university, but it's academic programs can still adequately prepare students for careers after or even during college. It's diversity and variety of clubs and programs makes the campus more than just a place for learning- it's a place for fun too!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from this school is relatively average, there isn't much value but it is a college degree.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is a health center that's easily accessible.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It looks alright and its relatively centralized on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We're not that great athletically, so we don't have that big a stage on the college level.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is basically what I expected it to be, no more or no less. I go there every day without feeling much connection to the school, I just want to get my classes done then get home.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: UNLV provides many options for classes. It just all depends on the professor. I've had good ones and not so good ones.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: UNLV provides many opportunities for students to achieve their career and academic goals.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: UNLV does a great job informing sexual assault.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I would not suggest living on campus.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek-Life is a great way to get involved.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Unlv is best for their basketball team!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Unlv is a place with multiple diversity.

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.
