| I loved my time at the University of Nevada, Reno. Great school spirit, beautiful campus, tons of student resources. I never felt like a number and had amazing faculty help me find the right path for me. As an alumni I carry so much Wolf Pack pride! Thank you U of N. |

| UNR is my dream school and I had very high expectations. It is not hard to find a group of people to fit in with and we have an outstanding amount of school spirit. |

| I decided to go to UNR because it's a lot cheaper than going out of state and I didn't want to go to the local community college. |
I lived on campus last year (my Freshmen year) in the absolute worse dorm there is on campus, White Pine Hall. The place hadn't been renovated since it was build in the 60's. They also haven't bothered to get newer furniture for the living room area, my suite got a couch that was ripped to shreds and everytime someone sat on it the entire room smelt like feet and grated cheese. And sharing a very small living space with 7 other people is just a horrible idea. Luckily, I had an amazing roommate and great suite mates that I became very close to. A big complaint at the University is that it's very clique-ish, which is true but living in White Pine kind of broke that wall for me. My suite mates and I were very diverse. My suite mates were all very involved on campus and three were a part of different sororities, and two were in diversity clubs. We also kind of adopted a new suite mate who lived down the hall from us and had lots of friends on campus. So I guess you can say that I didn't really have the clique problems because my suite mates introduced me to so many different people on campus.
As for Professors, most of mine were great. The only one I didn't like didn't even teach her Psych 101 class, she left TAs and students who had already taken the class in charge of teaching her class. I also had a Theater teacher that pushed me really hard and I felt like she hated me for some reason, but after I broke down in class 2 times I realized that her pushing me made me a much better actor. I had never actually felt like I was the character I was playing until I took her class. Overall I love the University, but the one thing I absolutely hate and might be the thing that makes me want to transfer is the financial aid office. I'm not sure if monkeys are the people in charge, or if the university fired every financial aid counselor and left students in charge. You will probably never see anyone working there but students, and having what seems to be all students there makes it very chaotic. This year I gave them my tax information 4 different times and when I went their last week and asked why it still says on mynevada that I need to give them my tax information, they informed me that apparently they just shred everything they aren't sure if they need or not and they shredded my tax information 4 times. They then told me that I needed to pay for 33% of my tution and dorm because I turned my information in late when I gave them the first copy they shredded in April! Would it be that hard to stamp everything they decided they didn't need? I mean really, if the students aren't the ones in charge then the people in charge must lack all common sense!
