Social life is important, however, I feel that is all this school has going for it. I have had many problems with the university losing paperwork, being disorganized with scheduling classes, and making many mistakes with tuition. There are so many things that go wrong here and I thought i was the only one who was having problems but once I spoke to other students I found out the university was lacking in communication skills. For example at the beginning of the year several of my friends and I received an email that we were going to be evicted from our dorms if we did not turn in paper work to the housing office within the next few days. As students we were never notified that the paperwork needed to be turned into that office, as well on our "My UNLV" accounts it said that all of our paperwork had been turned in. The email unnecessarily scared many students and this is just one example of paperwork mistakes the university has made.
The professors here are a joke. I understand that there are bad professors at every college however these are some of the issues I have run into here at UNLV. My math teacher has not showed up to class twice in one semester because he "slept through his alarm" as well when he does show up it is a good 10-20 minutes late. My english teacher has come into class smelling of weed and often times forgets to tell us that class has been canceled. When I asked another one of my professors why he has not responded to an email I sent him he told me he had changed his email and had forgotten to tell us. Honestly I am fed up. Why should I take classes seriously at all if the professors and the university do no. I know people say you will get out what you put into your education, however it is hard to care when no one else seems to.
Students here at UNLV also have no school pride. The phrases "If you are so smart why don't you go to a real school?" and "Don't come here it is a joke,"are common statements I have heard a lot around the campus.
If you are going to school for hospitality this is a great school and dont let my comments scare you. The campus is really pretty contrary to what many people think, as well the people here are amazingly nice and accepting(I dont think you can find a more diverse campus in the nation and I absolutely love that). I am honestly sad that the university is incompetent because I love this city, the campus, and all of the people I have met here. I am currently in the process of trying to transfer and I honestly hope I can get out of here.If you are willing to put in all the work without help from the professors or the university, and are not easily distracted by the thriving people and city around you, then this might be the college for you.
