5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't had a negative class experience at UNR. I'm impressed so far by the efficiency and practicality of the school to organize classes and professors to provide various ways to learn the subject and engage.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There's information on the walls and online about scholarships, job opportunities and internships. Information is readily available whenever students need it.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have one night class and knowing there is an available police escort service makes me feel very safe. Walking in a group is always a good tip as well as parking close to the class.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I have heard positive and negative things about fraternities and sororities. Some are crowded and rambunctious, some are responsible and geared towards a common goal.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic department is energetic and promotes healthy habits to all students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've had a great experience at UNR so far. The only criticism I have is the math department. Since math isn't my best subject, learning for me depends on the teacher. I've had a few teachers that are good but I haven't had one that has helped me pass a math class with higher than a C. Overall, every other department is fantastic and showcases different points of views coming from numerous, colorful perspectives. Counseling is insightful and dedicated to helping students acquire a diploma under their arm in the more efficient and productive way. The energy st UNR is positive and as a student you feel like you are on your way to doing what you love.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: All of the professors that I have had at UNR are dedicated and passionate. It is obvious to see their own interest in the subject, as well as expertise, in their lectures. Their dedication is not only in the classroom, but also all throughout campus. I usually see professors in the Joe having lunch and they always wave and say hi. I have even had professors have weekly meetings for coffee with any student who would wish to join, and others that make it a point to invite students into their office hours to put a face to a name. Professors are easy to contact through our Web Campus program and are always willing to go out of their way to help students.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Twice a year UNR hosts a career expo where students can meet various employers and businesses to find a job after graduation, internships or even a part time job while still attending school. My academic advisor sends a newsletter out weekly to announce job listings and internship openings. UNR also offers a career center where students can lesrn to create or update a resume, search for job opportunities and contact future employers.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: UNR provides a text message, email, radio and intercom system to notify students of any emergency, whether it be weather or crime. I constantly see security personnel such as Reno and UNR campus police officers around campus, on surrounding streets and businesses and apartments that are located close to campus. The campus police station is easy to access and is close to other popular areas on campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms on campus provide a safe, affordable and convenient home-away-from-home for students. Dorms are directly across the street from classes and also are close to shuttle stops. RAs are friendly and consistently plan social events.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: On campus, our fraternities and sororities are best known for the various fundraisers they host throughout the year on campus. Although Greeks are known for socializing through parties, greeks and non-greeks can come together and socialize through different volunteer groups hosted throughout the year. When walking to and from class, students will see multiple tables and booths set up by fraternities and sororities that are either asking for donations for a certain cause, signing folks up for community outreach events and fundraisers, or just passing out free snacks and goodies to brighten up students' day.

5 College Junior

Athletics: UNR students, staff and also many Northern Nevadans can consistently be seen at Mackay Stadium during the fall months to cheer on our Wolf Pack football team. We take great pride in special games such as homecoming, rivalry against UNLV to obtain the Fremont Canon, and our most heated game against Boise. However, football is not the only sport that fans flock to watch. Whether it be our men's and women's basketball team, volleyball, baseball, softball, tennis, swimming and diving, or golf, Pack fans are sure to be in attendance, proudly wearing silver and blue to support our team, University and community.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Nevada- Reno is unique for its diversity and close-knit community. UNR prides itself in having not only a diverse student population, but also diverse groups and clubs to promote inclusion. Faculty members are approachable and always wear a smile on his or her face. The Associated Students of the University of Nevada (ASUN) work to provide safe entertainment and events to help students become more active and engaged in our campus community, whether it be spirited homecoming football games, outdoor paint concerts, or group volunteer events.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors at this school are very knowledgeable, but some of them are not able to teach the information in a way that can be understood easily.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The alumni network in the area is very large, this makes it easy for students to get well paying jobs after graduation.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't exactly the most fun places to live, but their close proximity to campus makes them much more convenient.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life offers a wide variety of options for students. However, some houses have bad reputations while others have exceptional reputations.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The entire campus shows a good amount of support for the sports teams. While other teams are more popular than others, you can see that all teams receive some form of support.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is very easy for freshman to get adjusted to. The only thing that i do not like so far is that the school is so impacted, making it very difficult to get into certain classes

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: University of Nevada makes the best of all situations. No matter what the student needs or requires, the school will attempt within its boundaries to make the most optimistic outcome. The school is exactly what you need for the perfect college experience as well as the academic priority that is appreciated within the years you spend here.
