As a recent graduate, I absolutely loved my time at the University of Nevada. I've had so many incredible experiences, and received a truly great education.

I was easily able to graduate in 4 years, even after changing my major. Most faculty members were very knowledgeable, and actual cared about the students. Being a large state school, there is naturally great diversity among students. Not only demographically, but there are so many people with unique interests, and a subgroup for anyone. I also fell in love with Reno itself. The surrounding neighborhoods are full of college students, and it's great being so close to downtown. The Riverwalk is beautiful, and there are always festivals and fun events going on(not to mention great nightlife).The University is still relatively unknown and under-rated, but will continue to grow(both physically and in reputation). I imagine that in twenty years this will be one of the top schools on the west coast.

I am just about done with my first semester at the University of Nevada and I absolutely love it here. Choosing this University is the best decision I've ever made. Attending this school has given me a new sense of freedom and I am growing in individuality. Greek life is so much fun and everywhere you look, students are wearing UNR gear. It's easy to find help where you need it. Things can get overwhelming very quickly so just make sure when you feel yourself start to slip, get the help you need quickly. If you fall behind, it's way more difficult to try to catch up than to just get the help right away.

There are pro's and con's to this university, just like any other school you could attend. Depending on your program, you will be happier with your education here. The sciences are highly regarded along with the School of Business, if you are in Liberal Arts forget about it. The school accepts about anyone, and that will definitely make your classes crowded and the faculty to student ratio suffers because of it. The new 15 credit policy they implemented recently screws everyone over. You do not receive complete financial aide if you take any fewer than 15 credits, yet 12 is considered full time. Another way the university milks money out of it's students. Warning, GREEK LIKE IS EVERYWHERE. It is huge and greeks are very pretentious at this school. If you are looking for academics do not go here. If you are looking for a beautiful campus, great greek like and for a party, this is your place to be.
