I like the different majors and programs this school has to offer. The school is also very diverse. Majority of the professors are pretty good. I think the school needs to help students with finding scholarships and making sure they are in the right classes before the deadline to drop classes. The food at UNLV is okay, they need more options though. I think the school should also have more events for everyone to do.

Overall the campus is beautiful, there are lots of opportunities and activities for students to get involved in. My favorite spots on campus were;The Student Union offers many food option right on campus, but there are also many food options located across the street from the Student Union as well. The student recreation area which has a four story facility with an indoor pool and track, weightlifting area, basketball courses, racket ball courts, and many other group activity areas. Lied library is the place to go and get some studying done as well as easy access to the largest library in Nevada. As far as the professors go usually the general education classes are thought by graduate students which isn't the best, but once you start to take more degree specific classes you then start to get professionals and the cream of the crop as instructors and professors.

My experience here was relaxed and easy going. I enjoyed the feel of the campus life and the wide range of food and culture options available. The people here are down to Earth and sweet, or at least the ones I've come across have been that way. I'm looking forward to continuing my studies here over the course of the next few years.
