Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe while on campus and the security is good.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not into greek life and honestly do not know much about it, other than I know we have it here on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not really a student who keeps up with what is going on in the world of sports around campus, but I would say that the student involvement is mediocre, somewhat average. I see many people supporting the teams on campus and off campus, and the school spirit is average. But I also feel that I cannot give an accurate review because I do not involve myself with campus sports.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UNLV has been a very welcoming school for my transition into college. The campus and the people who are on it are nice and lively people. The classes I have taken have been interesting and somewhat challenging. I would say my experience thus far has been very applicable.

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.

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.
