"UNLV does have opportunities for students in networking with students orgs, faculty, and community members. You have to go get it. Having a support system is a must and building one takes time and energy. I was able to attain a full ride and more than I could imagine, such as presenting research at international conference sponsored by UNLV and learning from doctoral students in labs. Although there are negatives to any aspect, such financial aid takes a lengthy time to process many things and the student parking is bad at times. These little annoyances didn’t deter me from seeking advice from my peers and professors who helped me attain professional skills and advance my education into graduate school."

"UNLV is easily one of the worst universities in the country. They claim to offer a wide variety of degree programs however, they do not actually offer the classes to obtain that degree. The acceptance rate is over 80%, yet less than 40% are able to graduate. As someone who attended, its not because their classes are difficult, its because the classes don't actually exist or are not offered for4-5 semesters at a time. So what do you do when your scholarship requires a full-time commitment to cover the cost of education? UNLV has a wonderful scam going, because they force you to take erroneous classes to keep your scholarship and keep you in school longer. Why get you through in 4 years, when they can collect for 6 years and give you the same degree? Go anywhere else. Even if you're paying 10,000 more for out-of-state tuition, UNLV will scam you out of your money. If you still think they're legitimate I challenge you to try giving them a call-their numbers listed on the official website are "not currently in service". Do not trust this shady, extortionate institution."

"Looking back at my program, I thought it did a good job of providing the material needed in order to embark on a career in Kinesiology. I think the department could do a better job of providing career opportunities and avenues for those in the major."

"Dr. G. is a gem of a professor, if you can take his Professionalism in Kinesiology class (beneficial no matter what major you declare), I promise you will not be disappointed. The campus is really easy to get around, no hills to worry about and convenient for long boards, scooters, and bikes. Free parking is hectic if you don't get there early enough and to be honest it isn't worth the hassle, get a parking pass."

"UNLV is growing and updating their facilities every year. Although it is placed in the middle of the busy city, the campus is not affected with the commotion of the Las Vegas strip. The campus is not very large and makes it easy to commute from class to class. The Lied Library is without a doubt a great place to study individually or as a group with the options of private rooms to rent or use. The school spirit is something to be noted, and every year when we battle for the Fremont Cannon with UNR, the campus lights up with rebels and scarlet and gray pride. My classes were difficult and provided me with a great challenge. The allied studies of Kinesiology were very interesting and gave me a little insight to what I would be learning in Physical Therapy school. The college academic advisors are great and put you on the right track to succeed. Once a rebel always a rebel!"
