3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports aren't really a thing at my school

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I usually just bring a lunch or go to lunch with my mom.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: First two years was easy as pie, last year was an absolute joke.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Not enought variety of healthy options

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The campus food we have isn't top notch, however it does get the job done.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Although I do not live on campus myself, due to its great hot meal program and affordability, I must say it is a great experience.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live with my parents so I didn't have to worry about researching all of this.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Inn-n-Out is right next to campus, and with it open until 1 am, it's a great place to satisfy late night cravings!

College Freshman

Administration: I haven't had any issues with campus strictness, but that's probably because I don't live on campus and am a generally good person.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid went fairly smoothly for me, and because of the scholarships offered by UNLV, I'm able to get paid to go to college!

College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't gone to any parties.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Great for those who don't live off of those options.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Not very good, but proximity is good.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Classrooms need to be updated.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: Can't complain, not bad but not the absolute best.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off campus. I honestly spend so much time at the campus that I think that my life is there. Then I go home and can see that it isn't. One can get all sucked up in all that UNLV offers- and don't misunderstand- that is not a bad thing. But personally I like to get out of there and the drive home is relaxing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Cafe Rio, In'n-Out, and Firehouse Subs are only a couple of places that are nice to go to in a hurry for a rapid yet good meal.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Strictness is not something UNLV practices. I have seen it been enforced, but only at times that it is needed. I personally do not believe that it is affecting students' academic or social lives.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: It is an ongoing process. The FASFA only gave me student Loans. I'd rather have a grant than a loan any day. As for tips, I'll tell you the same thing the Financial Aid lady told me: You have to find it all yourself online. That is really terrible help, because I really need some help and all they tell me is "go figure it out yourself". I feel really mis-treated and not important by the school in this aspect.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties here really take a bite out of my time and there really is no purpose behind them other than the fact that it is a social event. I honestly think that they are not all that important. Then again, I am not much of a party guy.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: One day I decided to go to the commons to eat, but I found that the food there is so expensive! I had about five dollars on my card, and the lady asked if I had any more. I had to leave the place absolutely embarrassed to have ever entered there in the first place. Though, that is the only negative experience that I have had eating at UNLV. I go for the occasional sub, and that is about it. I don't have that kind of money to afford the pricey foods that these places are selling. I'm a college student, I mean, these guys expect me to have MORE money because I am spending close to three-thousand dollars every 6 months or so on tuition? You've got to be kidding me. I spend my days at the 99-cent store stuffing my shelves by the Progresso soup cans and Chef-Boyardee pasta.

Meal plan? Flex dollars? I've never had one of those. I can't help you guys because I haven't the slightest idea of the meaning of that. Like I said, I'm eating out on cheap, easy to get bulk foods, not that expensive little pastry you get at Einsteins for ten dollars.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus. I have many friends that enjoy living here and I have been to the gym and pool, and have enjoyed the experience here at UNLV.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: i think its good to live off campus, but not far from school

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.
