4 College Junior

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

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.

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.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Lots of student involvement in sports and clubs. Lots of fan support as well

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit for our school is amazing! At football games, the stadium is always packed, no matter the weather either! Students, parents, and supporters all show out to games even if it's snowing and freezing outside. What I'm proud to say about our school, is that our schools spirit isn't just for our football team, it's for all of our teams. Students go out and watch soccer games, volleyball games, rugby games, I mean everything! At these different sporting events, the Wolf Pack makes it known that we're there. We scream chants from the stands or from the sideline throughout the whole game. One time, at a basketball game against UNLV, it was a close game, the Wolf Pack with the lead by two points. UNLV just kept catching up and the crowd was wild. The students and fans were screaming, "DEFENSE, DEFENSE!" at the top of their lungs and as soon as the buzzard went off, and the UNLV player had missed his shot, let's just say I had gone deaf for the rest of the night. I don't think I've heard the stadium that loud at a basketball game at all during the season. It was an amazing experience to be apart of and the athletics/ athletic supporters here is what makes the University of Nevada, Reno the best school I decided to attend.

School Spirit
Nevada gear is commonly worn on campus, and students often find themselves at football and basketball games, where drunkenness is a requisite part of the experience. Students don't have a huge amount of school spirit, with homecoming and Mackay Week events chronically under-attended. Greater spirit is lent to Greek life events and drinking. Students do not often travel to away games, aside from the annual game against UNLV, which is held in Las Vegas every other year. For that game, people travel en masse to see our football team defeat the Rebels.
Getting Tickets
Tickets are free for students, aside from conference games. Students go to the box office in the Joe the week before the game they want to attend and scan their student ID card because each student is only allowed one ticket. You can also get tickets on the day of the game by showing up at the stadium itself.
