Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Overall Rating

Overall, the school is great. So far, my experience has been a lot better than the experiences that I had in high school. One of my favorite aspects of being at UNLV is the freedom. While there are general rules, for the most part, you're able to whatever you want. To prospective students, I would recommend being as informed as possible. If you have any questions, there is always someone at UNLV that you can ask. Whenever I have questions, no matter what, the person answering my question(s) is always polite, caring, and helpful.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

The school is very nice. I attended the University of Arizona for 2 years and found it to be more inviting for students to spend time at the school and interact with each other than the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. But the more time I spend time there, the more I like it.
