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.

    Competitive air to do your best at the school. However, the school has a very welcoming atmosphere. Also UNR is a great school for someone who wants to appreciate a big city feel in a small town.

    It's an alright school. The dorms were pretty stressful for me. There are lots of resources on campus you can make use of.

    The University of Nevada- Reno in education is an amazing school with so many ways to get involved with the community and environment. However, I feel the students are too immature and rude. There's always good people around though; overall, the school is okay.

    If you enjoy all four seasons, then University of Nevada, Reno is a perfect school to go to! The school is a wonderful with many sports games and clubs to join. The school is also not too far to travel from one end of the campus to the other end.

    The University of Nevada-Reno is a well resourced college with great libraries/computer labs to study in, plenty of space to unwind be it a bike ride or sitting at a coffee shop, or inside a well-sized room. The teachers so far have not been the best quality though it depends on the course. The dormitories are positive environments to live in and classes are a hit or miss.

    I read in a review that the wifi in some dorms is inconsistent a lot of the time. Is this actually true or just one student saying this?
