What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a really awesome school I was luckily able to see and tour before the virus. I would definitely like to visit again one day soon and hopefully attend once I graduate to pursue a medical career while being in a great environment at UNR. Definitely would recommend anyone to go to school here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are two aspects two the University of Nevada, Reno that you need to understand: the university culture and the culture of Reno itself. Although I am now in Graphic Design, I used to be in the Computer Science major program (College of Engineering). The engineering program(s) at the University of Nevada, Reno can be challenging since the teaching style is very hands-on-first, learn-second. My intro level programming class launched all of us straight into solid programming concepts on the first day without us first getting acquainted with the very idea of computer science in the first place. I personally had never touched any kind of code beforehand. Overall, the culture of UNR is varied between majors. This is not to say that your major will heavily inform your college experience, but understand that the workload you accept will influence your social life. On-campus, the resources are very available, except for mental health counseling, which is typically usually filled in my experience. There is constant new and evolving construction: the library (our "Knowledge Center") also has tech rentals, and we have many places on campus for students to congregate and work together. It's definitely a growing university and will continue to evolve in the coming years. I think we can expect it to change into a more powerhouse university soon. Many people party or otherwise take part in substances, and the reasons why will become clear when I talk about Reno's culture. Many people (but definitely not a majority) join Greek life, but beyond a few sweatshirts on people walking around you won't see too much of a strong presence. For the culture of Reno itself, which advertises itself as the biggest little city, I'd say that it definitely veers into little city. If you're from Vegas, L.A., or anywhere with proximity to a city, you should prepare yourself for a culture shock. Not necessarily a drastic or a dramatic one, but you should be prepared for a slower pace of things and being able to create your own sense of fun. There aren't things to "do" like there would be in the city; that is, you'd be hard-pressed to find special attractions beyond going outdoors, going to the movies, or walking downtown. That's not to say that it's a dead city, but that you might get bored if you're used to the city. But I'd say that gives you a license to create your own fun.

I love the school! The campus is beautiful, the academics are amazing, and there are a ton of great opportunities for networking and research. The only thing I don't like is the city itself, outside of campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There's a wide variety of people and opinions, and there are always events happening on campus, with people wanting to know what you think. It's a great environment, with tons of opportunities for students to get involved, become educated on just about any topic, or just have fun.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoyed the campus. Currently it's one of my top schools to decide between. The campus is extremely beautiful, full of agriculture and Greenland. The opportunities that students have is great to help their careers after school. Campus life seems like it never stops!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! We need more recognition and more love from the rest of the country, to be honest. I feel like within the next ten years, we could end up being a really prestige school. There's so much diversity in the school, and all of it is embraced and it is a safe environment for all of us, especially us minority groups.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that UNR is a great environment within a class setting and even more as a sports setting. I feel that it is a very politically involved school, as when you walk around there are ALWAYS some sort of political stands/people EAGER to tell you what they have to say and get you to join them in whatever it is they're doing. However, there has been a large amount of hate towards minorities and large groups of people on campus. While I feel that not much besides a few emails with links to websites / events has been done, the students make up for it. The community of students has gone out of their way to hold their own events and make their own posters/flyers in order to get the point across the UNR is inclusive and not a place for any hate or bigotry.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the University of Nevada strikes me as a well-founded and maintained campus. It isn't a perfect establishment, and it has a long way to go before it could be considered as such; however, it definitely has the feel of a good school that cares about its students.

I have an overall positive view of UNR. This is only my first year in the school, but there are many good clubs, classes, and people. I have found multiple clubs where I feel welcome, my teachers are good at teaching, and the people are generally nice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Best kept secret! A smaller campus steps away from the best rivers, lakes, and mountains for water and snow activities. Lake Tahoe is less than an hour away, and the airport is less than 10 minutes from campus. Tier 1 school at a great price. Don't graduate in debt!
