The university of nevada las vegas is an astonishing school. It is incredible in ways of diversity, involvement and school spirit. UNLV is the prime example of a great college/ university. UNLV has so much to offer and commit. This school is proud and the alumn should be too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is generally safe. Its when you get off campus where you will generally encounter some homeless people who will harass you for money. It really makes me think how a decent sized university such as this one let the off-campus situation get this bad.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are getting a masters in Education, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. I decided to continue my education with University of Nevada Las Vegas for a master's degree in Education. I am currently a teacher and was hoping for a raise and needed a master's to renew my license. Many other educators suggested that I consider a for profit school or one that was entirely online. However, I felt as though I wanted to have a true educational experience with a public university, as I did with my undergraduate. What a mistake. I certainly cannot speak for the other departments at UNLV, but for education, my experience was a complete waste of time, money, and resources I could have spent elsewhere. The advising department for education is atrocious. My personal adviser was so bad I'm pretty sure they fired her. At one point in a meeting she told me that if I wasn't able to finish my master's on time, I could just become a substitute teacher instead. (To compare, substitutes get $100 a day, no benefits, no health insurance, no sick days, no stability vs. $41,000 starting pay for a teacher in CCSD with free health insurance for a single person like me. I have been teaching for multiple years now as well, so she was basically telling me to quit my job to do something I was less qualified for and to be paid less). They had me taking classes that the basically forced on me and now are no longer required (student teaching). All of my fellow peers were consistently frustrated at how no one seemed to be able to answer questions, even the administrators. Assignments made no sense, often were busy work. Each person who watched me teach said something different as to what was due, there was zero consistency. My first semester for my "student teaching," the woman was atrocious, consistently late, disorganized, and just unpleasant. She would show up half way through my classes and then mark points off my grade because she was late and didn't see the start of class. I felt as though most of the time I spent in class was wasted or was not furthering my education. I didn't really learn any helpful teaching strategies or methods to become a better teacher. I was okay with spending more money initially with UNLV because I believed I would be receiving a superior educational experience than an all online or for profit school. Now I realize I basically wasted my money. If you are a teacher and planning on getting a master's, a cheaper option like University of Phoenix is actually better than UNLV. You will learn just as much, if not more, and you will save a ton of money and it takes half the time. UNLV's Education department is a joke. Overall, my UNLV experience is not one I would suggest to other students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally love UNLV, but the surrounding area is very unsafe. This school has a lot of pride when it comes to sports and the student body comes together quite often to celebrate our school. Academically I will say that some of the classes are big, but most are small, 15-20 person class. Even though students may be in a huge lecture hall, they can always get one on one help with their teacher during office hours or go to tutoring with an individual that has taken and passed that class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNLV is known for it's diverse campus, being #1 in the nation. It is easy to get along with people and it is easy to find people with similar interests and goasl as you. It is an average uni, not too bad. The campus reflects Vegas accurately, and it is located right across from the Las Vegas Strip!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus several times since I was younger and I'm quite familiar with the surroundings, having not studied there yet. There are so many clubs and opportunities on this campus. I love the art scene on campus. The art walk was one of my favorite things on campus. Their galleries always have wonderful services, food, and of course art. The environment is always well kept.

Overall UNLV is a pretty relaxed school. There are always little events that the school coordinates which makes your day feel fun and like there is always something exciting happening. There are great places to study including the library and a few cafes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally think there are some of the best professors for STEM here, and the research labs are the best. I think very highly of my university but everyone has their own experiences and opinions. My perspective comes from someone who is usually busy with school-work or extracurricular and normally hangs around others who are in my field.
