This university is a class act from the time you arrive until it's time to leave. Although my son was accepted at a few university's--he definitely picked the best one. We fully understand why our son loves it so much!

UNR has been expanding programs and offerings over the past decade. New buildings are in progress, planned or recently opened. There are plenty of opportunities for students with well-known programs in journalism, engineering and Nevada's only medical school. It is a lovely campus on the edge of a burgeoning city.

Great pond and quad area... More

Big enough to still be small....suited to those in the sciences and engineering. Methinks...even with the increased student body size...services are still set so as not to be a number.

Our first time on the campus of the University of Nevada was in August of 2007, we are from Mesquite in southern Nevada and our son chose to go to college there. We were immediately struck by the architecture of the buildings and the fact that this campus seemed like it was in a rural setting even though it was... More

I had time on a quiet Saturday afternoon, so ambled through the UNR campus. The Nevada State Museum at the north end of campus was particularly interesting.
