The University of Reno, Nevada is a beautiful school surrounded by rolling hills that go for miles. The student body is full of intelligent, goal driven, and motivated students that will soon go on to change the world. The University prides itself on academics, being a tier one university, that goes above and beyond to the call of education. My personal experience is a little different... I love being at this university! I love the expansive programs and degrees they offer and the many glorious social opportunities to expand ones network. The affordable price makes UNR and top pick for students living in the area as well as Nevada. Overall, my experience at the University of Nevada, Reno has been one of the most positive things to happen in my life. I'm excited to continue this journey and graduate with a degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology!
Review University of Nevada - Reno
OH MY, can you say construction? They are always building new dorms to bring new freshman. Oh and the construction workers take all the available parking that is rarely available in the first place. This school's priorities are in the glam. Building a gym worth 4.8 Million? But why would they spend that on hiring better professors or parking so students can actually get to class! The acceptance rate says it all.
The University of Nevada Reno is a great school for students who are looking for an exceptional education and great student involvement. There are many opportunities to get involved on this great campus. The professors are committed to seeing a change in the students and want to ensure the success in students. The Residence Halls on campus have many opportunities for tutoring and are very modern and comfortable. There are many different options for the set up of the dorm. There is sure to be one that suits you! The only downfall to campus is all of the construction that is currently going on. This makes it very difficult to navigate on campus. But, all of the construction is for the betterment of the campus, and when it is complete there will be many new updated facilities. The University of Nevada Reno has something to offer everyone from any background.
