Elaina Vlassopoulos - 3/29/2017
Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2014
"The University of Reno Nevada was a wonderful school to attend with a great atmosphere and many amenities for students. I enjoyed most of my experiences with professors as I narrowed in on my degree. Human Development and Family studies is a wonderful degree to pursue, I will warn that most jobs may not pay much but the work you can do and the people you can help makes it worth it. It has also set me in a position to continue my education and work towards my masters. It's a great foundation but I would recommend more education be added to it."

"The University of Nevada, Reno is a small campus with an engaged student body. There are numerous opportunities to create a supportive social atmosphere based on similar study interests or career plans. The landscaping on the campus is beautiful and the surrounding area offers world class recreational opportunities! The faculty on campus are approachable and it is easy to meet with professors who teach their classes and know the names and capabilities of their students. The University culture emphasizes research and public contribution so there are many accessible paths to apply your study and to pursue funding support."

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the University of Nevada Reno. The community health science curriculum was challenging yet approachable. I believe any student who wants to pursue a career in public health would benefit from the community health science program at UNR!"

Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2014
"I'll give you the truth: pursuing a degree is not going to be easy. As a student, you will need to push yourself to your limits in order to succeed, and even then you might not meet your own personal standards. However, as a graduate of UNR, I can honestly say that you will NEVER be facing this challenge alone. Not only do you have access to numerous resources on campus, but you also have access to some of the greatest minds available in Nevada with whom you can work and grow with! These minds belong to your peers, and these peers will challenge you to improve your work, your integrity, and your behavior. I cannot promise you'll love college, but I can promise that you will learn to think and perform to the best of your ability."

Ariana Cramer - 3/1/2017
Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2013
"The University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) is one of two accredited four-year public universities in the state of Nevada. The university has a long history . Marilyn Monroe starred in the film, "The Misfits", which was set on the campus. Six Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists have graduated from the Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism. I received a wonderful education from dedicated professors through the degree program. I went through the broadcast television news track and was able to receive a great paid internship through the School of Journalism. The internship experience helped me land a producer job in my last semester of school. Many students cannot say they followed a career in their degree of study, but I was able to do so with the help and connections of the faculty at the school. UNR is a very reasonably priced institution. I was offered every resource I could possibly need. The Knowledge Center has a plethora of books, journals, movie and technical resources that helped me succeed in my studies. I am currently re-enrolled at UNR as a graduate student and a scholarship would greatly help me further my education."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2010
"University of Nevada, Reno is what you make of it. It is easy to get lost in the crowd of students. If you are involved and become apart of campus life you will take much more from the school that you pay in tuition. I had a general experience with my undergraduate basic course work. I was not until I was in my last 2 years of school when I discovered the professors that would launch me into my current career."

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2016
"The campus at UNR is breathtaking. It is a growing institution and the new additions are also something to admire. Class sizes are small and for the most part professors are available and willing to provide help when needed. There are plenty of opportunities available to network and meet with new students, whether it be in clubs or social events."

Brenda Rodriguez - 2/9/2017
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015
"I overall thought the university is beautiful. My program was very rigorous (it was known as the hardest program in the College of Business). I think the only thing I was very "eh" about is finding the right person to go to answer my questions when it came to signing up for classes. I felt like I would be pointed into all sorts of different directions before I got my answer. Faculty for my College was amazing. I always felt like my professors were always supportive and rooting for me."

Colin Richard Morrison - 12/18/2016
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2012
"I received a Bachelor's degree in Biology and a minor in Political Science. All biology undergraduates received the same degree. However, there are three primary specializations that students work towards as their undergraduate careers develop. These paths are pre-medicine, cell and molecular biology, and ecology and evolutionary biology. I chose to pursue the latter. While pursuing this degree I learned a great deal about the theory fundamental to the field. My familiarity with the field improved greatly because I was required to read and research primary literature. Within the Biology Department, I earned employment in three research laboratories that provided me with the technical and intellectual capacity to continue pursuing my career as a research scientist. I know many other undergraduates that benefited from these opportunities. The cost of receiving my biology degree was very affordable in comparison to other top tier research universities that have faculty investigating similar topics. I highly recommend people to pursue a biology degree from the University of Nevada, Reno."
