The University of Nevada Las Vegas - Comments and Student Experiences|
The diversity is amazing. Social life/events/the city- better not complain. I think UNLV takes great pride in all the things you can do here, extracurricular, etc. There are also several religious groups, activist groups, and social justice groups on campus as well- very philanthropic when you look beyond the young frats/sororities and the "Vegas" vibe.
My department was extremely... AMAZING when you hit the 300/400 level classes and graduate school. I think I can speak for other majors, it get's VERY competitive once you pass your gen eds! The faculty they get are from all kinds of places, very educated. Don't be surprised that the lower level courses have lower level kind of teaching. Get passed that and you'll see.
I wish I really participated more in UNLV's events. It's an awesome school that tries to have something for everyone.
My department rocked, department chair (retired) was such an amazing person and there are several favorites that I have that I know genuinely care for the education of their students, not their paycheck. There are many ways to succeed with the Academic Success Center, the FREE tutoring, ever-vivacious Student Union.UNLV is a high quality school and if you're paying in-state tuition, you better take advantage of it. I see I a lot of laziness as I go around campus and reflect these days. It's sad. Kids/new students do not realize what they've got.
