Overall Experience: I love my campus because it's small enough to meet people, but big enough that you're always being introduced to new people.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love the University of Nevada Reno, there are so many opportunities here with internships and clubs that I can get involved in. Our student government, ASUN, also does a good job off putting on fun events and concerts throughout the year. At first I didn't really want to go to an in-state school, but if I had to do it all over again I'd choose UNR again!

Overall Experience: Since I went out of the city for college, the experiences I gained at college in Reno is something I would not have gotten if I stayed at home.

Overall Experience: The University of Nevada, Reno offers a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate programs with a very competent teaching staff. There are also a lot of opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities, including clubs, sports, fraternities and sororities. The university also offers affordable study abroad programs. The campus itself is very nice and clean and is always buzzing with activity. There are also a lot of options for on-campus dorm living. Lake Tahoe offers snowboarding in the winter and the lake during the summer. The city itself also offers a wide variety of events and festivals. The only downfall to Reno is that the downtown area is pretty rundown, however, the Midtown District offers food, shopping, and art very close to the university.

Overall Experience: My high school is by far one of the most unique schools. In the Northern California area and well just about all areas, most kids would consider going to a school where you have little to no challenges and a place you're free to break the rules and just go day by day. Going to Uprep has influenced me to get involved with my teachers and the children. The distinctive features in my high school school are shown through the bonding experiences. Your teachers connect with you on a whole other level and I couldn't be luckier to experience the help and support I've had. At the end of senior year we had to opportunity to write a letter to any teacher ypu wanted and it made me realize how one thoughtful c inspiring person could impact me so much. I've found the person I want to be and it has pushed me to face the hardest challenges with school. I've branched out from the person I was and have become motivated through clubs and classes. I have learned through my experiences in school that high school is more than just school work its a place where you get to know yourself and create all these hardships and great times to start you off towards your future. I couldn't see myself being more impacted by any other high school.

Overall Experience: Some of my favorite experiences are having the pleasure of taking some of the classes at UNR, and having the pleasure of working with great professors.

Campus Food: Depending on your personal preferences, I'd say that most of the places you're going to be eating will be located in The Joe Crowley Student Union--fondly called 'The Joe' by students. Einstein bagels is my favorite 'quick-bite-to-eat' by far, but there's a lot of choices. We have a Jamba Juice and a U-swirl available to us, and a Starbucks. However, if you're looking for great coffee, my suggestion is The Works. They make the best espresso drinks, and all their food is fresh. The staff there is so pleasant too, and the whole place has a steam-punk theme. There's a lot of variety at The Works, but my suggestion is to order a burrito, and add all of the ingredients that you like, and top it with their salsa. It's amazing, so if I have time you'll usually find me there between classes.

Administration: I feel safe at this school, but I'm not really sure what it's like to be on the receiving end of law-trouble. I stay out of the way of any bad influences, and out of the way of the officers.

Scholarships: I've been told by several financial aid people (when asking about what scholarships are specific to the campus, since there are a few) that loans would be a 'quicker, better option.' Despite knowing that it's my intention to graduate debt-free, they continued to dodge my questions on programs that help with financial aid, and about how quickly the process would be resolved. Luckily, after doing my research, I discovered the "Wolf Pack Advantage" program, which covers a substantial amount of costs if you're enrolled in at least 15 credits (usually, that means five classes). The financial aid has come in and luckily I haven't taken out any loans, but remember to do research on the programs available to those in your position.

Campus Housing: Living on campus has it's perks, but it is pricey if you're looking at paying to live there on your own. Though often times if you're coming from a neighboring state, you pay just resident costs.The campus is beautiful and there are several halls for those who are looking for co-ed, or specifically gendered halls.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There needs to be more facilities. Especially for the athletes. We need more room and more equipment.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of fast food. All the good stuff is no where near campus.

Administration: It seems as if people can get away with most anything, unless you are a freshman living in the dorms.

Scholarships: I already have interested accruing on my loans and I have only completed two years. Absolutely insane.
