I believe it is a good school. I don't think the students are very involved with each other unless they live on campus. There are handfuls of teachers trying to combat the lack of student connection by having group projects. I may not be personally adjusted to the lack of communication within the classroom, but I enjoy the group projects teachers make to include more communication opportunities.
UNLV is not for the weak. I believe that there are parts of this university that could be better like the safety of students considering people can wonder aimlessly throughout the school and no one would know if it were a student or a random person; if there was a way to ensure student safety that would be doing all students and faculty members a great justice. I also think UNLV should hire more capable teachers as I have unfortunately heard things that are not ethical in teaching and learning.
UNLV, so far has been a really good school. I feel safe when walking around campus and most of the people are really nice. The professors I have care about the students and always made sure to remind us they are there for help (i.e. office hours, through email, etc.)
I attended UNLV for one semester and thoroughly enjoyed myself and the time I was able to spend there. Not only were the professors really understanding and easy to talk to, I also was able to meet and collaborate with so many amazing people that had different backgrounds and stories than my own.

If I could talk to the younger version of myself, I'd encourage myself to get invovled sooner and more often. College has so much to offer to a student, and I think the average person doesn't take advantage of that. I would tell myself to not treat it as a job or burden, but to see college as a fun experience that you'll never forget. College may be some of the best years of someone's life, so I believe you should get as much out of it as you can. I'd also tell myself to establish more relationships with my professors. These are some of the smartest people you will ever come across in your life, and I think you should take advantage of those relationship opportunities. I'd tell myself to keep a solid balance between school and social life, but also understand that your education is extremely important and to take it seriously. I'd encourage myself to not sleep through my years in college. This is the time of your life to be active and involved. You should be creating relationships, having fun, and building your future.
Students at the this campus are unique and diverse, and they help each other as much as they can.
The school is not centered in a college town. The nevada heat is extremely uncomfortable
All the things you can do in the city.
University of Nevada, Las Vegas is a vibrant and evolving university that has only recently defined itself in the educational arena and continues to develop into a stronger, more competative university.
I wish I knew how competitive the nursing program could be, I was not aware that the process of selecting nursing students could come down to a fraction of a point. I have come so close to being accepted for two semesters in a row, only to be told that I had to reapply. I was counting on this program to start my career however they changed the testing process halfway through my education process and made it easier for some students than others. The testing process has not been fair and that has been disappointing.
Integrity. No matter how you are, you will fit in a certain group.
I believe that UNLV is fit for any type of person. The student body is extremely diverse, which reflects the city as a whole. Any kind of person can find something to enjoy at UNLV and in Las Vegas.
I don't really brag about UNLV. The only thing I really like about is it's close to home and I can use my Millenium scholarship.
UNLV is best known for the city of Las Vegas, and all it has to offer. The strip attracts many students. The city has a great amount of social things for students to do. The basketball team is also very popular. Greek life is not as big as at other universities, but for those involved, it's very important. The hotel management school within the university is one of the best in the nation.
Students who aren't serious about college shouldn't go to UNLV. This is a college where the students should be serious about their education or even living the college life and enjoying all that college life has to offer.
Expensive housing and dining plans
It's a decent institution, but feels uninspired and dull
Obviously not. However, I wouldn't put it past the school to offer a few of these courses for fun.
That alot of people believe that UNLV is not a good school, as academically challenging as others.
I'm not sure. I don't pay much attention
i honestly decided to go to unlv because it was really cheap and was in driving distance from my home while still providing quality learning at a university level.
I lived in the dorms my first year at UNLV. I lived in the upper class housing and only had a roommate for one semester. I enjoyed it. i got to sleep late and my work was right across the street. They were however slightly older. The shower head was slightly short and there was a myth that there were cockroaches. I didn't see any no did i hear about any. i believe there were just because thats a vegas problem but that might have been just to make a believable reason why students shouldn't have copious amounts of food and trash in their rooms.
students didn't leave their door open to the galway but the way that the dorms are set up is that there are two rooms with usually 2 person occupancy joined by a shared bathroom. i like this set up because it gives you privacy in the regards to bathroom time and show time.
