  • Dec-29-2011 I am a current student here

    I really do enjoy the atmosphere and the people. I have grown up in Reno my whole life and know a lot of people around campus which some people want to get away from but I find comfort in because big new scary universities can be intimidating and it is nice seeing faces you recognize every now and then. Plus there is always the opportunity to meet the new people. I enjoy the games and other activities offered on campus. I am looking to get more involved next semester because I will be living on campus.
