Jeannette

Nevada has an incredible student services division, committed to seeing students complete their educational goals. In my degree programs I had professors willing to work with me, answer questions, and provide me with opportunities that helped me with my goals. My friends and colleagues are all different from me, but hold similar values of education and ethics. Being close to Tahoe and San Francisco make for great cultural experiences and new adventures. It’s a beautiful campus in a city that combines big city comforts within a small-town, family-oriented environment.

Brittney

The best thing about this college to me is the social life. People here are always very friendly and it is very easy to make friends here. I wasn't sure whether or not I would fit into this school because of course there are partiers. There are partiers at every college you will attend though. I do not drink or smoke so I did not think I would fit in. As I came here I realized that I was completely wrong. People are very understanding if you don't do any of that.

Laura

I love the endless opportunities to be involved. There is a club or a fraternity that each and every person can enjoy. I am in the pre-med fraternity and can't explain how helpful it has been in school and planning for my future.

I consider the best thing to be The stuff to do. There is always something going on. You never have to look very hard to find something to do on campus or off. It is nice because it is hard to sty bored with so much going on around and it is hard not to get involved in something. I like that becuse sometimes I want to go find something to do and it is not a hard task. I think that it also has made school more enjoyable because I'm never bored.

When I need to pull an "all-nighter", UNR is there to help and keep me safe.

I think the strong emphasis on research makes the University of Nevada, Reno very different from other schools. It encourages students to come up with their own ideas and to think about things from other perspectives.

This school makes sure that every major on campus examines the potential for future research amongst it's studetns.

The best thing about my college is the atmosphere. Being in Reno you get to have a little bit of city mixed with a college town. Our football games are a lot of fun and the campus spirit is high. We have new buildings and our older brick buildings give our school a little bit of the old mixed with the new.

Michael

UNR has a lot of resources for the students. Between the new knowledge center and the free tutoring offered for most classes, students have a lot at their disposal if they need more study material. There seems to be a lot of graduates working for the University as well, which is nice if you are graduating soon but are unsure where you can start in your career. A friend who just graduated was able to enroll in a program for internship credit that eventually led to a job and work experience in his field, all while being a student.

This campus has a great student government association puts on a lot of events during the school year that allows for students to easily make friends and participate. As well there are numerous places on campus to study and resources such as free tutoring to help you in your as academic success.

For me, the best thing about the school is the educators. I am in the music department and nearly all of the professors, inside and outside of the department, have had a profound impact on both my creative perspective and time management. The recording and mastering program is exceptional as well as highly ranked nursing program. But the personal interaction with peers and teachers in unmatched for true learning. This institution has a tremendously knowledgeable and personable faculty and they have influenced me beyond my now previous assumptions.

gabby

Besides my major, everything about the school is great .

Stephanie

I have really enjoyed the student body at my for this first year. They are all very nice and helpful when it comes to class advisement, finacial aid, and student health. We have many sporting events that all students get in free for and the times for classes and the events are different from each other so we have the chance to attend. There are many clubs and sororities/fraternities, that focus on education and the needs of each student.

The school also offers networking to benefit you with your post graduation career goals. I really like how helpful the professors are !

The fact that the student center and the library is regularly open to midnight. During finals week, hours at the library are extended and the student center is open for 24 hours. For the sports fanatic, game days are generally very exciting. It is always great to see the whole town so supportive of the school's sport teams.

Darshay

I consider the athletic program the best thing about my school. The city of Reno is really involved in its Wolfpack athletic programs and most of the sporting events sell out. The football games are enjoyable and the basketball games are fun as well. Everyone dresses in it's schools colors: blue and white and silver during the school sporting events and everyone is cheering their hardest throughout the whole game. Some of the sporting event games are televised on ESPN so that makes coming to the games even more enjoyable. The whole school supports is Wolfpack.

The guidence councilors are absolutly wonderful at their jobs. They are very easy to get a hold of and truly have answers to all of the questions you ask. They do a great job of laying out a plan that you can follow and graduate as quickly as possible.

Professors are always willing to help you inside and outside of the class. The students that attend our university are friendly and make you feel like you are part of a family. UNR is a great college because there is such an array of various ethic backgrounds. Everyone's religion, race, and gender is accepted. I have never seen any harsh treatment for anyone at UNR.

The best thing about the University of Nevada, Reno, to me, is that I get to be close to home with my family. I am from Garnderville, Nevada, which makes UNR an hour or so long drive to my house and home town.

The campus at this school is wonderful. Very clean, safe and beautiful. There are tons of places to study, my favorite is the Knowledge Center-a huge library with MARS technology, hundreds of computers, quiet study areas, group study areas and individual study areas. I also spend a lot of time in the Joe Crowley Student Union, my friends and I are always in their for coffee, lunch or to visit the two story ASUN bookstore. Another cool part of campus is the quad with gives the campus an eastern feel. I love spending time on campus in any weather.

In the begginning there were a lot of oppurtunities for help financially and scholarly, since the economy has crashed that has not been the case. However, at one time the willingness to help was the best.

If you are a BAS at UNR they will bend over backwards to help you. The members of the staff are much more helpful and professional and the school is currently working to fund the sciences at all costs, despite the budget cuts.

I believe the best thing about my school is the new Knowledge Center or Library. It is simply amazing and uses the MARS system that enables students to access reading material and any reference from the library in a matter of seconds. It also accomodates students and allows them to have a place to study and is a fantastic learning environment. It has helped me properly prepare for my finals and learn material more succesfully than if I had attempted to learn it in any other environment.

The school spirit and sense of community. You really feel connected to everyone. Everyone is quite nice, and there are lots of activites to get to meet people for freshman and transfer students.

Randall

The faculty and staff are very helpful.

Josh

The University of Nevada, Reno has rigorous engineering programs. The engineering programs are 10-15 credit hours more than other degrees, as well as having no room for elective classes in the classical sense. While UNR is a fairly public university, its engineering programs are esteemed. As a chemical engineering major, I find that attending UNR to get my degree will prepare me for whatever lies ahead after I graduate. Not only are the engineering departments great, but the general math and science deptarments are also very good. But mainly I attend UNR because it is in my home town.
