" Great school, not enough parking spaces. The campuses don't flow that great and some buildings are difficult to get to. But the overall feel of the campus is great. Needs some improving with the faculty. "

" The campus offers a lot if you're willing to put in the effort to put yourself out there. It's a beautiful location and filled with a rich history. I've really enjoyed my time roaming the campus and going to class. While it's a research university, the professors offer experience and insight into their fields and help nurture your growth. "

" I never lived on campus so I cannot speak to that experience, but I loved my time at UNR for the most part. My program was very small and there were not as many course options as I would have liked, but I enjoyed the intimacy of having a small cohort, including more instructor face time and little competition for RA and TA positions. The academic staff was incredible; it was my interactions with Dr. Fridland, Dr. Clayton, and Dr. Ferguson that ultimately led me to pursue a graduate degree/reconsider my future's trajectory. I am eternally grateful for the insights and experiences I had in my program. The new gym is beautiful. The KC is beautiful. The mining library is beautiful. The campus is beautiful. The counseling service center is great. (ALSO! There is a great stairwell in the School of Arts where anyone can go and legally spraypaint/appreciate the incredible art.) I was not in a sorority/entered as a transfer student so I do not think I laid the proper foundation to have an exceptional social life (i.e. not meeting tons of people in a dorm my freshman year who would become my life-long mates), but UNR's central location -- right next to downtown -- makes it easy to participate in things on and off campus. Plenty of great bars or house parties or campus activities in close proximity. "

" I feel lucky to have attended UNR as a psychology student because I had access to a number of amazing professors, clubs and research opportunities after starting out at a much smaller private school and transferring. There are some truly incredible professors doing work in nearly every imaginable field of psychology. I also loved all of my music professors (I play the flute) and tried put a number of clubs ranging from musical therapy to feminist activism. There are a number of things that I would change if I could, however. Large classes may be overcrowded, parking spaces are incredibly expensive and depending on how much money you spend you may be walking 20 minutes one way to class. Wifi is consistently terrible and eduroam only works about half the time. I can't say much about sports or the party scene as these were not my priorities at all. They're there if you want them but I just as easily avoided them. "

" The University of Nevada, Reno is a really great school. The campus is amazing, the facilities are top notch (especially if you are going into a stem field), and the student aid programs are pretty amazing too. If you are taking any math class, they let you know the second week there is a math center with an academic mentor to help you for every math based subject. If you think you need more help there is practically a campus based tutoring session for just about every class, which is hosted by either the campus or the teacher's assistant. Another thing that I find amazing about the campus resources is that there is a business center that is geared for any student who is interested in starting their own business. This center will help you for any aspect of the start up process that could need help with, whether it is research or securing funding, they will help you with it all. The facilities on campus are pretty advanced thanks to the campus expanding vigorously over the past ten years.This last year UNR invested about ninety million dollars into a new STEM building, and the year prior a new dorm and an art building were completed. There are a lot of science and engineering labs on campus, with a ton of grants that are available to just about any student. I hear the university is also planning on building a new business building for a hundred million dollars, it is supposed to have a massive business center/lab in it with a brand new business lounge also included. On the nonacademic side, the campus has a new gym that doesn't have a monthly fee and there are a lot of new on campus restaurants being built in the coming years. As for the social scene, Nevada is not lacking. There is easily a hundred clubs and organizations to join on campus as well as a lot of outside community clubs that pull in quite a bit of students. There is a lot to do off of campus as well, UNR is surrounded by mountains and deserts with tons of activities to do in each, the food is amazing as long as you are outside the casinos, and there are a lot of festivals going on all the time. As I am writing this, we just had the Italian Festival last week. It had great food, good music, and a bunch of people having a good time. There is always something to o and something to see with your friends. There is so much I could say about the University of Nevada, Reno, but it all boils down to; I don't think my college experience would have been as amazing if I went somewhere else. As an addendum: Coolest place in Nevada: Gerlach (for those star gazers) Best pizza place: Pizzanos "
