The University of Nevada, situated in Las Vegas, is a public university with “high research activity” and a selective admissions process. UNLV is a Hispanic-Serving and Minority-Serving institution, as well as a military-friendly university. UN-Las Vegas is also home to the City of Asylum program, which is a safe place for writers whose work has been muffled by censorship and the threat of assassination or imprisonment.
UNLV is an amazing diverse and active campus. There is always some going on which leads to many ways to get involved. The passion at this school is amazing and UNLV is really a best kept secret.

A great school if you're willing to put in the effort to experience all it has to offer. Teachers are varied between great and okay, but upper level teachers all tend towards being awesome. There are many programs and extracurriculars for anything you can imagine, so there is something here for everyone.
