4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't started college at my school yet, but I love the atmosphere. I've visited the campus a few times and it is a clean and beautiful campus. The students and faculty are all really nice as well. There are so many groups and activities that I could participate in too. My school is also close to home, and my family is really important to me.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at UNLV has been satisfying. UNLV is unique because it is diverse, they welcome everyone, and the student population is accepting of that. In a world full of discrimination, UNLV makes sure that is not the case for its students. If I could do it all over again, I would choose UNLV because it has everything I am looking for, that is stellar professors, spectacular view (especially on the fifth floor of the library), and an opportunity to become a more prominent individual due to the abundance of diversity it offers.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is very organized and clean. The environment and infastructure is a professional setting which creates an outlook into the real world. The faculty and staff are supportive into a student's needs and enforces advise where necessary. Throughout orientation, the tour and the booths allowed incoming students to become familiar with clubs and extracurricular activities.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love being there. Tuition is affordable as compared to most colleges. Don't be too caught up by the city but be serious about studies and it will be worth every cent. In all its a great school..maybe not the best but this school is gradually getting there.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy the environment of my school. However, I've had a bad experience regarding a teacher which make me untrustworthy of the staff at my university. With that said all my other teachers have been great and all you have to do to be successful at my school is have motivation and dedication to your studies. My university offers a wide range of tutoring sessions to help you in almost any subject that you need.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is inviting, diverse, and has been a wonderful experience that I would never change for anything. Over breaks, I even tend to miss it. The academics may not be the best in places such as the math department, but many other areas, teachers seem to be passionate about what they teach and helpful towards their students.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Mtsac offers a variety of courses for different fields. It is not only a good place for students who want to transfer to schools all over the world but save some money in the first two years, but also a good choice for people who want to gain something to enhance their skill for career. Because of the tolerance of Mtsac, you can meet diverse people here. You can also learn from people with different stories.

Off-Campus Housing: Many friends I know have chosen to live off-campus (either with parents or in an apartment) and they like it. Of course, there's more freedom (if you have your own apartment), more space, and free bills (sometimes... if you live with your parents).

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't attended many parties, but I've heard from others that it never gets too crazy!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a couple of places I like to go out to off campus, but often times it's too expensive, so I opt for something farther from the campus.

Administration: I personally like a strict system, but UNLV does it in such a way that you do not feel suppressed - there's still plenty of freedom!

Campus Food: Not the healthiest food on campus, but there are plenty of options and varieties to suit your own needs and wants!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was a bit confusing at first because I am a freshman, so everything is new and hard to handle. I've dealt with it well though!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere is fantastic! I'm an incoming freshman and I connected with the UNLV community right away because everyone was so inviting and supportive of UNLV!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors here are the best. Especially those teaching English. They are quirky and fun. It is obvious they are very passionate about their areas of study. Most og the professors I've encountered are kind and do seem to genuinely care about their students education. I like the variety of classes, also. I wanted to attend a university with diversity both in culture and majors, and I was not disappointed by UNLV. The parking is a mess, but the campus is lovely and the students are smart and friendly enough. I believe I made a good choice in attending this university.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am a bit discouraged and scared when I hear some people say that a degree from UNLV is practically worthless, but I will have to find that out for myself in a few years.

5 College Junior

Local Area: Las Vegas is colorful and inviting. I love it. It's pretty safe.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: They are friendly and very attractive (especially the girls). They are more interested in Netflix and food than doing homework or studying, but who isn't at this point. From the Yik Yak posts during finals week, though, I gather we can all stand to spend more time studying and less time procrastinating and desperately trying to catch each others attention. If only.

Athletics: Don't really hear too much about sports except in school emails. I have taken some classes with a few football and basketball players but never really felt the need to attend a game (they were very tall and handsome, though, so I was slightly tempted). I just hang around uninterested groups, I suppose.

3 College Junior

Administration: There are no rough restrictions that I know of... Although, I do hear plenty of complaints about parking citations, which are given regularly and without mercy (I received one on the first week of school my first semester. Brutal.).

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There were a few fire scares last semester, but other than that it was pretty calm. The campus police are always around, which I guess is a good thing. I feel safe on campus, even when I stay until after 10 p.m., the campus is dark and lonely but I do not feel unsafe.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: With my limited experience with off-campus living, I can only stand by what I have heard from friends or family who have lived off campus. Nearby the campus there are not many options, and while they might have cheap close apartments they are not in the best part of town. Farther away, there are some nice options which are not to pricey, especially if you have a roommate or two, yet it brings the burden of transportation. Living without any guardians seems like the dream, but they also have negative aspects with it, and living with your best friend can cause problems that you might have never expected. I would advise to live on campus if you have the opportunity.

Campus Housing: If one has the opportunity to live on campus, especially for incoming freshmen, definitely take the chance. I became entitled to certain freedoms during my first year that I would have missed out on had I not lived on campus. Things such as transportation, access to food, and housing bills do not need to worried over, so students can focus on studying, their health, and a bit of R&R. The atmosphere in the dorms allows for simple social interactions, and creating friendships is practically inevitable. Everyone is generally going through the same hardships in the dorms, whether it be stressful classes, long-distance relationships, or even a cold that has been going around campus. There will be times when you miss home out of nowhere and having people surrounding you with the same troubles helps, I mean misery loves company, right? One of my ultimate favorites is the proximity to your classes; morning classes become a viable option when living on campus, and waking up ten minutes before your next class is totally fine. The option of living in the dorms should not be passed over if one has the ability to do so.

Party Scene: Living in Vegas, the availability of parties is crazy. You can go for the obvious and head to the strip for the night, but there is also the option of house parties if you know enough fraternity or sorority peoples. The parties that some brave students attempt to throw in the dorms are often short-lived and are not the best considering how small the dorms are. The prevalence of parties, get-togethers, or sleep-overs should not be undermined; they provide a fun and stress-free atmosphere for students who are undergoing a draining or intense day, week, or semester. Getting wasted is not necessary, and the chance to become friends with strangers that you can have for years (or hours) to come should make you consider any party invitations that you might receive.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is close-distanced, on the cheaper-side, and is vast. There are many options around campus that are fairly priced and offer wide menus. The variety is immense especially if you're willing to either walk or drive a bit off campus, considering the strip isn't too far off from campus. In-and-Out and Chipotle were some of my mainstream favorites, but there are a couple of under the radar restaurants nearby that are fantastic as well. I don't generally ask for student discounts at fast-food restaurants, but I am sure some do have the option, or you could find coupons online for a cheaper price.

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.
