    Joining clubs or Greek life is a good idea if you're looking to meet new people and have a fun time. There is a mix of good and bad professors, but the good ones really are great and helpful. Overall, it's not a bad place to go to school at all!

    Prospective students should sign up for the Nevada Bound program, or any program similar, that allows the student to visit the campus with his/her parents, ask the tour guide questions, and meet with different professors. This student should look at the list of majors offered at the university, especially if he/she is interested in a specific major that the University of Nevada, Reno offers, such as pre-veterinarian studies, engineering, or speech language pathology. Ask any friends that have attended the school any questions that you can think of, and do not be afraid to ask the ambassadors/ tour guides questions when they come up.

    You should apply- they offer a lot of scholarships to those who apply, and they ARE a Tier 1 institution.

    Live on or close to campus as the public transportation in Reno is horrendous and unreliable. Don't buy textbooks from the Wolf Shop - rent them or buy them used wherever you can find them cheapest. Keep every paper you're given, and keep your binders organized.

    We aren't too far from Lake Tahoe so if you plan on skiing, snowboarding, or anything of that nature, make sure you are equipped with enough gear. Reno is in higher altitude than the rest of Nevada, therefore, it snows. It wouldn't be a bad idea to bring a heavy coat, especially if you have a low tolerance for 20-50 degree weather during the winter time. I encourage everyone who struggles with math to definitely use the Math Center! The tutors (which are also students) are very helpful; they understand everyone's different levels of understanding in math. No matter the class, they can help you pass!
