University of Nevada - Reno Reviews
UNR is great university and the professors teach in a way that is helpful. Because they care about students as individuals, they are very understanding of personal situations. The university has a warm atmosphere and lots of opportunities for students interested in different things. The surrounding Reno area is fun to explore and you meet a lot of cool people. It's also really easy to find a job on or off campus, and because there are lots of university students, they're usually flexible with scheduling. Overall a great university, Go Wolf Pack!
Personally I really enjoy UNR. So far I’ve had pretty decent professors with a few quirks here and there. Campus is beautiful and has many different spots where you can lay and just relax in nature, that is if weather permits. Sometimes it can get dangerous since it snows here and campus and roads become slippery. Campus Life is great! There are many clubs and organizations that range from a lot of things and I think it’s easy to find your place. I wish diversity was better especially since I came from a very diverse high school.
I like the diversity of this institution! So far I have seen it all from only visiting the campus a handful of times. I would like for there to be easier navigation with finding certain major requirements online such as the classes needed. It would also be useful to have more one-day visitor parking for a quick errand. However UNR has numerous study places, from inside and out, there will always be a spot for us to sit down and do our work. There are multiple food options as well and that is great!
