Most Helpful Review for University of Nevada-Reno

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 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?

    The University of Nevada is one of those colleges that may not have been your first choice, but can definitely lead you in any direction you wish to go. The campus is constantly vibrant with activities, performances, and opportunities around every corner that it's hard not to join something. With internship connections to Microsoft, first college to have 3-D printing available to the study body, over 200 student clubs and organizations, home to the University Study Abroad Consortium, and many other various surprises, this college is quickly becoming a diamond in the rough of Nevada.
