"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."

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017
"UNLV is a wonderful school. I recommend it to anyone pursing a career with a bachelors degree or higher. The school has several extra curricular activities available, a gymnasium available for all students and the campus is neat and maintained. The library is massive and they have several places to grab a bite on campus."

Mecca - 6/23/2017
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017
"As a young Black woman, there are three things that matter during college: safety, community, and opportunity. At UNLV, I have received the gift of all three. The University and its staff stand behind their students in battle, and know to listen when at war with them. The culture of the campus makes everyone naturally feel included even if they've never met before or share the same background. I have not been proactive about networking, but UNLV's extensive alumni contacts have helped me obtain multiple opportunities that have advanced me tremendously academically and professionally. College will always be what you make it, but a strong foundation will help you build a future worth living. UNLV provides an experience worth having."

Shane Parker - 5/28/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017
"UNLV is a great institution with a fantastic geology program. The staff are helpful, engaged, and incredibly knowledgeable in their respective field, research is available to undergraduate students, and the department is of a good enough size to where it's not too small but there is still a sense of community. I would definitely recommend it."

Brionna S. - 3/29/2017
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012
"I enjoyed my time studying at UNLV because I was heavily involved with campus organizations, which enhanced my networking and social experience. I was impressed most with my upper-level course professors because they were experts and invested in my education. All were available to discuss the classes and my future during office hours. Projects like submitting a marketing plan on the university radio and developing a consumer study on diversity marketing were memorable and impactful."

Bev - 3/23/2017
Degree: Writing
Graduation Year: 2015
"UNLV has such a great staff. The majority of my professors were so passionate about what they taught and always gave great feedback on my work. They also exposed me to such great literature and history and some of my favorite books are the anthologies that were given as assignments. There's every opportunity to openly speak with professors and they're quick to write recommendations or to help in any way. My only regret is having to work while going to school so I didn't have the chance to explore all the different clubs and organizations UNLV has to offer. But I didn't completely miss out. There was always something going on in the amphitheater or in the free speech zone where I got to witness how various clubs functioned. Other than that, if you go to UNLV make sure to become friends with your professors and your advisor. They are a great resource for figuring out how to get ahead in life and you'll definitely need that."

Anna Craddock - 3/22/2017
Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2011
"Studying for my fine arts degree at the University of Las Vegas was difficult. The funding for the arts at this university had been cut. Most of my instructors didn't stay for very long, as they could never be guaranteed a permanent position. There was also an absence of community within the art department therefore, making networking difficult. I did take courses within the engineering department as well. I found that the basic math and science courses were not taught well at the university. I had to take the courses at the community college to find passionate instructors."

Ross - 3/13/2017
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2017
"UNLV is a wonderful school if you are expecting to go to class and get a degree. but the school climate differs from what one would expect when applying to a university. There are no fraternity or sorority houses, as per state law, and the university lack the typical "college environment." Las Vegas is a transient town that cares little for sports. The professors and staff are fantastic, and the library is, so far, the best university library I have ever been in. I would recommend this school if your goal is to simply get a degree, but if you are enrolling in a university to get that "university experience," I would look somewhere else."
