What is the stereotype of students at University of Nevada-Las Vegas?


the stereotype for the kids at my school is those who just drink and go out to the strip and party all night. for the most part i must say that this is not true mainly bc it is so fricken expensive to go out and drink and go clubbing all of the time. there are people who tend to do that a lot more than others but for the most part all of the kids at unlv are laid back and like to party but mostly do it at kick-backs at their friend's houses if they even party at all.
