    Nevada is pretty inexpensive for students. I enjoy being a resident because I know it is cheaper for me than a non-resident student. It is a lot more reasonable than some colleges though and having the National Tier-1 status.

    Even though this upcoming semester will be my first at UNR, I've been there plenty of times. I did tutoring there in high school and have been on and off campus for various events with past roommates. It's a beautiful campus and a fun environment.

    With WUE locked in for four years this school is hardly more expensive than going in-state back at home. Besides all the BS fees they add on, I feel like I am getting a great education for my money.

    Although the cost of textbooks and labs can be extremely high, there are places around campus that allow one to simply rent a book for a lower price, buy a book and then sell it back, or buy it for a cheaper price. Tuition is expensive but there are plenty of offers for financial aid and scholarships throughout the year, so much that one can tell UNR really cares about the success and overall happiness of their students.
