3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's alright and they do help you

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love the environment and complex

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Though I used to live on campus, I think living off campus is better, but if you want to experience what is like living in the dorms you should do so, but do make sure that you can pay for it. It's not a lot esp. compared to other schools. But for me it is since my financial aide wasn't enough to pay for it.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: UNLV is at the top 10 as the most diverse campus in US. You'll see different students from different parts of the world. We have students from 75 countries all over the world.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Campus quality is great. We have good facility such as the gym, library, SU, etc. They're good places to eat, study, and socialize.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I'm not really sure, not a party person to tell you, but from what I've heard it's not the stereotypical party scene like other school.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Not very strict, but there are some problems like for example, there's not enough classes being offered for that one class that I need and some classes are not always offered.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience is great. I have met so many people from different places and made good friends with them. The events that we go to are a great way to spend time together.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although UNLV isn't one of those really good college, we have a descent university. There's tutoring being offered, workshops, clubs/organization, facility, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Our campus is very diverse, we are at the top ten of most diverse campus in US.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's always about football and basketball. Other sports does not really have a big publicity like say tennis or swimming.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Food in the DC does not have much variety. It's pretty much the same thing, there are times (hardly) that they have other options.

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.

3 College Freshman

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

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.
