Jacob

If you love waking up to a foot a snow the last day of finals fall semester. The quite calm during the snowstorm honing your knowledge, while the beauty of the brick buildings, reminiscent of an east coast Ivy League university, relinquishes your nerves before the onset of an exam. The University of Nevada is a place for people who are motivated yet not egocentric, who like access to a city life but the ability to escape it to the desert or the mountains. Attending school here is not only about the education but also about the life style.

People who want to get a quality education at a reasonable price should go to UNR. I was accepted to more prestigious schools, like UC Irvine and California Polytechnic, turned them down for UNR, and am extremely glad I did. The out-of-state expenses for UNR are less than the in-state expenses for many California colleges, and UNR is actually a pretty good school, academics-wise.

one who is diverse, and is into school spirit

Jilliann

This is an ideal university for almost anyone, as it is highly diverse in its student body and faculty. The city offers great locally owned businesses for shopping and dining, and during the winter season the mountains are only a stone's throw away for skiing, snowboarding, and lodging. Deals are often offered around town and at the slopes for college students, making life easier and more affordable!

Laura

One who enjoys the outdoors. It is a closed campus so youn spent a lot of time walking to and from classes through the beautiful buildings and quads. If you are interested in a difficult degree, this school offers you a difficult schedule that prepares you well for your future goals.

Jason

I think that the people that should attend here are hard-working students that are also fun seekers. It is a good place to study because it is a tier one institute so it is high ranking but it also takes hard work. I think the people should be fun seeking because that is what college is about other than studies. You go to have fun at the same time and UNR is perfect for that. It is a great place to have fun while you are working hard towards a degree.

The kind of person who should attend UNR is someone who wants to experience an education surrounded by beautiful mountains, lakes, and all four seasons. Lliving in Reno, NV never gets boring.

School pride exists at UNR. Being a part of the Wolf Pack is taken very seriously and is a alma mater that is recognized and respected, especially in the western United States.

Ashley

The best person to attend the University of Nevada would be an extremely spirited student who enjoys the outdoors; I feel this person would first appreciate the landscape and scenery surrounding the school enough to make the best of his or her time out of class by participating in something healthy and active and then fall in love with the campus and surrounding community because of the intense amount of spirit seen in students and Reno as a whole.

Iris

I think UNR is so big and diverse that everyone could attend and find their place of belonging.

An ambitious person that knows what he wants in life should attend this school. There are some distractions in the town and on campus that can deter a student into being his/her best-verion of themself.

People who like to socialize would also enjoy it here because of the big party-scene Reno offers here and the many activities it has to offer.

Michael

Reno itself has little to offer unless you are a member of the greek life, which exists in its own microcosm. Surrounding Reno is desert playground for ATV enthusiasts, as well as Lake Tahoe, which is a haven for college students on holiday or between semesters. In the winter there are numerous ski parks to visit in the mountains. A lover of the outdoors will find enough to do in their free time. The school tends to attract sports fans and the campus thrives from sporting events, so an interest in school sports will be sated.

The students who attend the University of Nevada, Reno should be students who care about their future and the future of their community. They should have a drive to make a difference and help one another. UNR is a community in itself full of students and teachers with a passion for education.

Alireza

inteligent students.

Kristina

A student that should attend this university should enjoy a city life on a small scale and like being active with the community on campus. Football and basketball are popular events that eveyone goes to. Those who wish to slide by in college are able to do so in liberal arts areas, whereas the sciences and math is much harder in terms of effort.

Melat

Someone who likes outdoor activties. I was partially raised in las vegas for my teen years and but was born and raised in East Africa (Ethiopia), so I was able to adapt to any situation and have fun. Reno is not for the city minded people. It's very serne and definetly promotes a study atmoshpere. There isn't much distraction from the community excepet for the millions of events that are put on for every type of person by the student government and event planning committes around campus!

Jessica

UNR is a school for everyone! While attending the university I met students from around the world, locals and even members from my high school graduating class. If you know what you want to do, great UNR has the degree offered; If your undeclared thats okay too, you will find it.

Edna

Even though I mentioned that it would be a difficult transition for minority students to attend, I would recommend this school to them because the Univeristy needs them as well. If more students of different backgrounds with a diverse scope of knowledge attend, they will increse the diversity that this University lacks. Throughout the years more and more resources are available to minority students who are struggling to adjust to a University environment.

Katherine

The type of person that should attend this school should be someone who is serious about their studies and who is determined to graduate. The UNR populous is very diverse, and making friends is hard to come by. If you are friendly, outgoing, and like the challenge of making friends, come aboard! The dorm life is just for you if you are looking to make friends while going to college, which, believe me, is necessary for college. It is very important to have friends while at school to help keep you sane, especially if you are away from home.

Lilianne

Any student that is hardworking and committed to a four-year education. The largest lectures are not that big compared to the larger schools; they are have 200 students at most. As you advance to the upper-division courses, the classes get smaller to around 30-40 students. There are many buildings around campus that allows a student to study if home is not an option.

Farah

A open minded person that enjoys all avenues in life. From out-doors to going downtown our campus is located within mintues of many different experiencs so a person that is open minded and willing to try somthing new and exciting everyday should stop by and come check out our campus.

Christine

This is a good school for someone interested in the sciences and social/human studies. Outstanding professors in anthropology, geography, women's studies and history. Athletes have access to a wide variety of programs (skiing, golf, baseball, football, basketball) and the community is very supportive of these sports as well. A student who enjoys the outdoors would do well here also - the local resources are outstanding.

Amanda

Someone who wants to have a great college experience and do well in school. If they are very focused on school they will love it here. Making friends is also a big part of this school and they will help you along the way in your college experience.

rocksy

The kind of person that should attend this school is someone who believes in giving back to their community and someone who can bring a smile. Our campus has such friendly people that if you aren't upbeat and have a positive outlook on life, it might be hard to fit in. UNR has students who look at life positively and it affects everyone. Professors are very knowledgeable about their subjects and make it enjoyable for students. People who have the hunger to learn and enjoy life would definitely be a great fit.

Hayley

A person who is looking for a school they can feel prideful they are attending for its campus, sports teams, and challenging acedimics. Anyone attending should be passionate about having a college experience: getting an education, making life-long friend, experiencing diversity . The outdoor activities can be refreshing by escaping to the mountains to snowboard or ski, hiking up to the "N" which overlooks the campus, providing a break many students need. Also, greek life is a huge part of campus and someone interested in it would be able to get completely involved.

Megan

Any person who is willing to put in hard work and stay focused should attend this school. They are many items available to a student who goes here and they should take advantage of that. A person who is willing to be social and meet new people should go here because you are constantly meeting people in your classes. A prospective student should know how to balance school and fun because you can have both at this school.

Laurena

The type of person who should attend the University of Nevada-Reno is someone who has their head set on making something of themselves. They should be able to keep up with the hard work and also strive to be a part of such a great university as well. I think a Reno student should also be very independent because you have to be in order to keep up with the advanced academics and resources that are available to you.

Nilofar

A social person that knows how to juggle social life and school would be ideal for this university. We have high school spirit so being involved is the best way to go in order to have fun at this university. Someone that is very studious could fit it perfectly as well.

Students who are motivated to learn, want a medium sized campus, and want a lot of options, from entertainment to food to payment plans. A studious environment is prevalent and encouraged, so studious students are welcomed.
