The classes offer an incredible amount of insight and new information. Classes tend to start off a little slow in my experience, but when they did get going they got going quickly and I learned a lot in short amounts of time. In addition, classes don't have lazy setups; that is, professors go into detail on each subject and don't simply list things for you to write down and memorize for the exams. Instead, they will actually take the time to explain and talk about each bit of content that comes up. Most professors also dedicate specific periods...

    UNLV offers a lot of majors, which a lot of people don't think they would have. Located in one of the busiest cities in the US, there's plenty to do and a lot of opportunities to evolve and grow. Although Las Vegas is known for clubs and casinos, UNLV is a great school and I enjoy attending it.

    UNLV is a great university that has lot of diversity of people from all over the world. It has nearly every program available and it is cheaper then most other colleges for both out-of-state and residential students. UNLV also has a large sport fan base since there is no professional team in Las Vegas.

    Definitely worth it for the theatre program. Very competitive, but nothing short of reality - it's a good start.

    UNLV is an ineffective, greedy, and disrespectful university that teaches you nothing but to distrust the system that you are a part of. This university has a biased system of professors and higher-ups that focus on how to make money rather than give their students a good education, which was my understanding of a university in itself. I have faced nothing but grief and adversity when obtaining my degree from here, and would highly recommend running as fast as you can away from this school.

    The University of Nevada, Las Vegas is one of the most diverse universities I have been too. I have visited over 15 colleges, including UCLA, ASU, Stanford, and UNR, and UNLV is just the right balance between fun and business. There is always something fun to do and new people to meet, but academics are very much encouraged and demanded.

    A school that is a 10 out of 10 in everything they have to offer. So much different than other Universities. Very diverse, which is what makes a University very different and incomparable.

    Fired up with Scarlet and Grey engraved in our school's blood and a mustache that fuels the energy of the diverse student body, is nothing but a canon that bursts into confetti of spirits sprinkling across Las Vegas. A confetti that illuminates the greatness of UNLV across the Meadows, in which no student shall pass due to the fun that generates in the school�s social atmosphere. Here, you will call UNLV home, if a college career filled memories is what you want to pursue.

    So far, UNLV shows to give a broader more interesting environment for learning. The college ambience is intellectually stimulating. The atmosphere is socially exhilarating.
