I am about to graduate in at theBrightCommunications
I am about to graduate in at the end of this Fall semester (finished classes this past summer) and now looking back, I was very satisfied with my education here. For the price, people really need to stop talking so poorly about UNLV. It is quite obvious that the comments/reviews I've read here are based off of novice students at 100/200 level courses.

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.

Question
The best part about UNLV was the price.Super BrilliantMechanical Engineering
The best part about UNLV was the price. Very cheap compared to other options. It is not a prestigious university. The education is mediocre. In the engineering department cheating was rampant and students slime ball their way through classes. For one example, I would say that 80% of students who passed thermodynamics cannot tell you what the 3 laws are. This embarrasses me and makes me ashamed of my department and university. Because students are so incompetent here I fear that this reputation will be a stain on my record that I can never escape. I urge you to consider this when selecting a college.
