University of Nevada - Reno Reviews
The custodial staff and serving staff were always considerate and patient. I had very little problems with teachers besides the occasional "bad days," and my counselor was very helpful in organization and classes as I transitioned into distance learning.
You'd think that moving to a city and experiencing freshman year during a pandemic and distance learning would be a drag as some would say; however, I was still able to experience freedom, independence, and growth. The school handled covid with some roadblocks but overall not a huge problem. I have no regrets.
