    University of Nevada - Reno

    • Reno, NV
    • 3,368 reviews
    College Freshman:I had some pretty cool professors and classes this last semester. There were really only a couple who I struggled with due to their teaching style, but they were all very knowledgeable and offered new perspectives in the classes. Make sure to check professor ratings before you pick your classes though! There are professors on campus who aren't the best at teaching/lecturing!
