University of Nevada-Las Vegas Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about University of Nevada-Las Vegas? Why?


The University of Nevada, Las Vegas is a beautiful and diverse campus. It allows for every student to have a safe and comfortable college experience with the many clubs and activities they offer. The amount of students applying to UNLV rises every year and as of fall 2014 the university experienced a huge growth in the amount of freshman. With the university's population steadily growing the demand for parking spaces also increases. The parking at UNLV is a horrible situation and you have to come to campus very early just to get to class on time.


The worst thing about our school would be that sometimes its difficult to get a class since each person is given a set date and time so you dont always get the classes you want which in turn may set you back a bit.


The worst thing about my school is that it is located in a city. It is behind the Las Vegas Strip. We see a lot of crime that happens around the school. It is also an open campus so there are many protesters on campus. It can be really loud. When studying outside or even in the library there can be a lot of noise. The campus is also located by the air port so there you here planes going over all the time. It could be a distraction.


The worst thing about my university to me would be the tuition, but honestly isn't that the biggest concern for all college students that don't have their parents paying for them? The second worse thing for me would be the courses that require certain books you can only find on campus. Why in the world do we have to pay a $100 more for a textbook we're only using for 15 weeks? Especially if all we really need are the school-unique access codes so we can do our homework!


The surrounding area is kinda ghetto. People on campus are awesome, but people in Las Vegas the city are not very nice and they drive like absolute lunatics! Very unpleasant off campus.


The worst thing about my school is that the campus is spread out, it doesn't seem much like a normal college campus.


I think the worst thing about my school is that I never felt like there was a lot of school pride. We have events in the beginning of the school year, but that’s about it. The most school pride we have had in a long time was when we won our football game against UNR. For the most part it just felt like people were really only there to get their education and that there wasn't more things that brought people together to celebrate our school.


I would consider the worst thing about my school is that we don't have sorority or fraternity houses like most universities. I feel that it's very untraditional, and unfair to the students at UNLV seeing as how many people decide the join greek life. Being in a sorority myself, I can say that we do so much for the community and put countless hours into our philanthropies, we have only positively benefited our school and the city of Las Vegas. I see no reason why we can't have what hundreds of other colleges have, a greek row.


The school is located in a very metropolitian area where there is a lot of traffic. Getting to school and trying to find parking on campus can take a very long time and can be a hassle.
