4 College Freshman

Athletics: The sporting events at The University of Nevada Reno are one of the best parts of the school. The games are what I look forward to most of all because everyone from the school gets together to cheer on and celebrate our athletes. The school spirit Reno has is so great, its like they we have our own family here and everyone is apart of the wold pack! GO PACK!

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: A new gym is being built that isn't finished yet, but when all said and done all students will have access to it. Currently the gym on campus is too small and always packed. There is an indoor pool that is nice and basketball courts. I am not involved in any athletics at UNR. I have taken a dance class and the professor was knowledgable. A spring/fall dance festival is held each semester that is unique and a lot of fun to participate in and watch.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Lots of students go to the games (especially since they're free), and when they do there is lots of school spirit. The athletic facilities are newer and they are working on renovating our student gym and football fields too!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There could be better support throughout the college, community, and nationwide. All in all it is a decent amount of enthusiasm.

5 College Senior

Athletics: I am support of the Nevada cheerleading team and we are so involved with the school its amazing. The school has so much school pride and spirit. Being apart of the cheer team we do a lot of community work and it really brings people together.

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.
