    The school was a great choice for me because it was in-state tuition with all of the best qualities from schools across the country. The resources at this school are advanced, the sports facilities are great (other than the tennis courts), and the dorms are nice as well. The setting itself is beautiful-UNR is close to Lake Tahoe, mountains for skiing, the river downtown, and multiple trails for biking/running/hiking.
