I am about to start in my third year at UNIV and so far my experience in and outside of the classroom have been amazing! I live to be active in athletics and I fell in love with the intramural programs they offer including: Flag football, dodge ball and basketball. It allows for sociability and an overall increase in personal well-being.
Not only did I enjoy my time in the gym, but also in the classroom and on campus. Everyone I have come across on campus has been friendly. I think this is because we all have a mutual understanding of respect and purpose in being privileged to attend this University.
With the diversity, growth and changes being implemented, I look forward to seeing my already great experience become even greater.

I've toured many campuses, but UNLV was by far the most welcoming. As an incoming freshman, I was extremely intimidated by college, but the faculty and student organizations were friendly and made me feel comfortable. The campus itself is beautiful and the diversity on campus is amazing, with students from every ethnic and religious background. The campus has around the clock security which is something one truly appreciates when taking night classes. Our sports teams are amazing - Go Lady Rebels! Since there are many student organizations, there is always something to do on campus. With the new influx of students each year, UNLV has also opened up new student-housing complexes, fully furnished and ready to rent!
UNLV is a great school for anyone who wants to major in Hospitality (Hotel operations/management) and Businesses. This school is popular for these programs and they offer scholarship opportunities and advertise events that allow students to network with real companies and businesses that are looking to hire students or give them internships. The hotel college just built a new structure for their students and it looks amazing! People may think UNLV is a party school because we are located in Las Vegas. But, there aren't as many parties/party scenes as it seems. If there are any, they're usually just small parties with groups of friends.
