My college experience thus far has taught me to work hard, how to prioritize my time better, and how to enjoy a full college experience. Classes here are lots of work, in order to succeed I had to learn great study habits, become friends with my professors, and know that there is always help somewhere in the university. I never once felt overwhelmed or overworked and I soon realized that the University of Nevada, Reno has helped me learn not only inside the classrooms, but outside of them as well.

    I just visited the campus and it is beautiful!! As a native Californian I really appreciate the trees and plants that cover the campus. The campus is huge, but it's always a scenic walk around. The surrounding area looks like a great college town!

    The University of Nevada-Reno is a university where you can step foot on the campus and be surrounded by the new, modern, work of art buidligns hoisted high enough to see the snowy sierras, or find yourself on the older part of campus, reliving the history of the school, and in either place, feel like home. The students are friendly, making it easy to make new friends, and the professors are passionate about what they teach, so learning is easy. Whether you are a bookworm or you were born a Greek, this university will have the books and the social activities to keep your college life busy and unforgettable.

    The University of Nevada is a lovely campus and Reno its self is a fantastic area. I have never been to the campus but I have been in the Reno area and the people are amazing. For a Cali girl who has lived 20 miles from Los Angles most of my life, you can trust me these people are AMAZING!

    The school is incredibly aesthetically pleasing and the newer buildings are incredibly well-equipped with everything a student could want or need. Most of the professors take their job seriously and put effort into both teaching thoroughly and grading fairly. The tuition is cheap compared to other universities while still maintaining a tier-one status.
