What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university is pretty good. The professors are chill and will answer practically any question you may have. There's often people playing in the grass area and lots of people apart of clubs or fraternities, which is a bad and good thing. It is always in construction which leads to traffic along walkways. Additionally, the parking is horrible, you pay lots of money for access for a parking area that is close to your classes and crowded, or for a spot about 30 minutes away from everything. Other than that, it's a good back-up school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will start with the honest disclaimer that this university was not my first choice by any means. I will keep being honest and say that I was more interested in the Ivy League. However, after spending a year at UNR, I have realized that the quality of education found at private institutions can be obtained right here. I know this to be true because the mark of a great education is not the institution but the student. So as long as you are the one making the effort and taking advantage of the many resources this university has to offer, then you can craft a world-class education without a doubt. I will be a sophomore this fall and I cannot wait to start. I will be fair and say that not everyone will be as motivated as I am about my education, but that does not make us a bad university by any measure. As I said, it is up to you to pave the way toward what you want out of your four years here. I have never had issues with faculty wanting to meet with me because I investigate and learn about them before taking their classes. Choosing the best professors is key to getting every single drop of opportunity here. When it comes to extracurriculars, as a member of the debate team, I can say that my success was determined by how much time I put in to the activity. Both coaches and assistant coaches were willing to help at any hour, yes any. So I hope that my experience as a first-year student at the University of Nevada, Reno help in making a decisions as to where to go to college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University. There is so much for students to do, there's places and things for everyone around the campus, they ensure students are safe, they hold many activities as well as playing the newest movies. Greek life is really big on campus but not the thing that matters most. The party scene is really fun and mostly known through fraternities and sports are a HUGE thing among students with most games selling out and always with huge lines waiting to get in hours before the games even begin. The university has become a tier one research university with many professors highly ranked and regarded in their fields with many research opportunities, most of which are paid and offer advanced masters programs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that the University of Nevada Reno is one of the best colleges I've ever gone to even though I do live In Reno. The times I've visited the currents students have been more than helpful, encouraging and open to helping my class learn about the classes and campus life. The campus is full with life and diversity. I do believe it is the best choice for me. I believe I will achieve greatness in this university and highly encourage many to take the chance to get to know it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNR is a school climbing the ranks. There are always programs and events to ensure the students are included, engaged, and satisfied. Its facilities are improving and several new buildings have opened in the past few years. Despite the newly constructed buildings, everything is still very convenient and accessed by walking. Many of the professors are passionate and faculty are passionate about what they do, engaging in other activities outside of teaching such as personal research. While the University may not be perfect, one can note that it cares about its students and is willing to change for them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNR is a university that is not only good for its academics and sports but makes you feel at home with the brick buildings and tons of trees. Hanging out on campus is always a good time whether you're waiting for a class or just need time to relax. The faculty is typically very nice and offer help whenever needed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, my experience at the University of Nevada, Reno, has been great. It challenges me academically, and is also affordable so that a student that works enough (through jobs or scholarships) will have little debt when they graduate. The community is generally safe, however there are some exceptions; and the campus police and cadets do a good job of enforcing and making sure the students feel safe. To an extent, the behaviors of students can't be helped, but they more than adequately make up for it. I would highly recommend the University of Nevada, Reno, if you want an affordable education that effectively challenges you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, as long as you focus on school and get teachers who actually care and want to teach it is a great school to go to. But what I highly suggest is reaching out and getting involved because having a community that is there for you and helps you and you returning the favor is just as important. I always do volunteering at retirement homes and sing at events and the sense of community that comes from Music Therapy Club at this university. I was a transfer student that wasn't sure if I wanted to stay because I would have to pull out loans but to me and my personal experience. Im staying till I graduate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNR is a fantastic school and has a beautiful campus. I am from Las Vegas sot here is a whole rivalry between UNLV and UNR but I am proud to say that I go to UNR. The facilities on campus and the buildings are beautiful. There are a ton of resources for students to use from equipment for projects, computer labs, spaces to rent out for projects, people to help with academics. There is also a large amount of extracurriculars that are a wide range of hobbies and interests. I am a part of the theatre community and I really enjoy working with the professors and people int he department. I think the arts departments are a bit overlooked but if you are a part of them you feel really at home because they are smaller departments. I am also in the journalism school, and there are tons of resources and professionals that help me to become a better reporter and visual communicator. I think UNR is a great choice for those from Las Vegas who want to feel like they went away for college without the hassle of long distance traveling and excessive out of state tuition costs,
