3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have friends who live in off campus housing it is okay.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Chipotle and Robertos best options but Jack in the Box gives a great discount.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm a girl so i can go to any party with no problem.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They really nice and helpful people.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: it was not a hard process since it automatically went to the school when classes were enrolled.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It is very convenient when you want something quick and it is also great that Chipotle used rebel cash.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus during the Fall 2014 semester.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I wouldn't know about off-campus housing since I still live with my parents out of convenience and to save money.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restaurants off-campus that students can go to, and it's nice how it's walking distance. There's a lot of variety as well, from Cafe Rio to Pho.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I wouldn't know about any parties on campus since I usually don't go to any. I'm not really a party person, and I prefer small parties to big parties.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Surprisingly, more than a few classes require attendance at UNLV. I thought most college classes did not require attendance to pass the class, but apparently many professors require it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process usually takes a while before they notify you about any financial aid you've received. Though I can't speak for all the students, but I am usually notified of any financial aid till months later.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus food isn't necessarily amazing, but it's not the worst either. I would say that the food options are pretty varied, but it can get pretty expensive if you decide to buy food from SU everyday.

Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home but I am looking to move out and have researched some great places outside of campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: I think there a lot of places to eat around campus and they are open at reasonable hours with late night options also available.

Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: I prefer not to engage in parties with affiliations to the University.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: I work in the IT Department and have worked with the campus police on occasion. They are very friendly and only look out for the students' best interests.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: The Financial Aid experience was quite confusing with all of the paperwork when I had to use my parents' tax returns for information, but overall, I was given the Financial Aid I needed and greatly appreciate it.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: I really like Greens To Go, although I wish it was open earlier to accommodate for classes taken in the morning.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I enjoy the campus but I am not a big fan of the parking arrangements when events are taking place at the Thomas and Mack Center.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I would not live anywhere near UNLV. The neighborhood is run down.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: I really didn't eat off campus a lot but when I did it seemed that I had to travel to find a good spot.

2 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: This is perhaps the only thing that made me regret attending UNLV, looking back now that I have graduate. Because UNLV is a commuter campus, that is, most students attending UNLV live some distance away from the campus, the typically college feel is very poor compared to other colleges and universities.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: I was generally pleased with the policy enforcement by the administration. The only thing that I really hated was how they carried out there enforcement of parking violations. Disgusting really. Besides that, it was okay.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
