I have a love-hate relationship with UNLV as I pretty much do with anything. The good definitely outweighs the bad though. It's virtually impossible to sum up my experience at UNLV in only three sentences!
Jenny from Las Vegas, NV
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.
