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.

    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!

    I love the campus, and the people on the campus. They have a really cool lab for Biochemistry Undergrads here, called the 10,000 Hour Lab.

    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.

    The University of Nevada, Reno is a tier one school which means we fall under the category of the nation's top 100 accredited Universities. Nevada is affordable compared to most Universities. Colin Kaepernick (San Francisco 49ers Quarterback) graduated from my school!

    It is a good school but could use some more social activities to really bring the students together. The class sizes are great except for your math and science classes where you have 300+ kids packed into a room that comfortably seats 200. Overall its a good school it could just use some improvements with upgrading technology in some rooms.

    UNR has terrible parking, and it's very expensive for a parking permit. The administrators value sports above education, and pride themselves on it. UNR has a good range of majors and minors, especially for mining, engineering and medical fields.

    Nevada has great resources like the math center, writing center, etc. All of my professors have been great. There are more than enough quiet places to sit and study or do whatever you want to do.
