"I hate the parking and I hate the location!! I'm a mother, wife, and homemaker. UNLV is not as accommodating as the community college, for people who live in vegas and have a family. They want every buck and coin they can squeeze from you! The location is south east of the city and that location is riddled with homelessness, crime activity, and low lives. There's always a suspicious character on campus everyday I go to class. The parking is ridiculous! They make students pay for a ticket or parking sticker to park and on top of that, there's not enough student parking! They make you either park super far away or pay for meters, if there's no where to park, which if you bought student parking for the semester doesn't qualify for "free" parking at the meters without paying the meters. I paid the student parking for the semester- NOTHING about it is free! But charging us to park, on top of paying the semester to park, is downright cruel and unusual esp. in this heat!! They have way too many staff parking, over 3,000 employees vs 35,000 students... really?!?"

"The University of Nevada Las Vegas is a good undergraduate university. For the biology department, there are a handful of professors that will require self-learning outside of class but that is to be expected in college. The research opportunity in University of Nevada Las Vegas is quite available due to various professor research or the Desert Institute Research labs. I personally worked in an Integrative Animal Physiology Lab for several years and learned more than I would have imagined. The university also has an integrated program called University of Nevada Las Vegas Honors College. In this program, the classes provided are more creative but may be more rigorous in workload. I enjoyed the honors seminar classes due to the variety of the topics and how passionate the professors were to teach their expertise. From Global Sustainability to Interpersonal Communication in various Health Disparities, I was fortunate to take such interesting classes. There are even classes with topics focusing on: western aviation, contemporary food studies, marketing and humanity, war, animals in human societies, global asian popular culture, soccer, Putin's Russia, and even LGBT history. It is annoying that there is a required amount of "honors credits" one must take to graduate. Since a biology degree requires so many credits already, I ended up taking 134 credits after my four years of undergraduate school. I took as many credits for honors college as if I were to graduate with a minor; however, the honors college does not provide a minor diploma. Overall I enjoyed going to the University of Nevada Las Vegas and I am satisfied with the education I received there to tackle medical school."

"The UNLV school of life sciences is full of passionate individuals driven to teach well and make breakthroughs in research. After completion of my degree I have been prepared to continue to medical school, and have made various social connections within my community. UNLV is one of the most diverse campuses and people can be thenselves comfortably!"

"UNLV has a very diverse set of students and great extra-curricular activities that add to the overall college experience. The professors within the Biology/Chemistry department were great as well. The campus is expanding, fixing many problems like low amounts of student housing and many colleges in one building. The biggest complaint is about parking. The amount of local students attending UNLV has increased drastically, but parking has only increased minimally."

"UNLV is my hometown unviersity and I decided to attend due to two key features it offered: a degree and program that prepared me for professional school and the numerous opportunities it provided regarding financial aid and scholarships. It prepared me more than adequately for graduate school and I look forward to starting graduate school at UNLV to earn my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree next month. I was also able to network successfully and became more ingrained in my community thanks to my experience there. It does not have the glowing reputation of a lot of state schools, but it is quickly working its way up the list and I think it will surprise many students that give it a chance."
