  • 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. 
  • I couldn't have asked for a better college experience. Great community for anyone who is new to town and recently campus has been looking sharp with new facilities. I've always felt relatively safe around campus and town, except for 4th street. Academically speaking it's a great school for the price (compared to California schools). The Electrical Engineering, Renewable Energy emphasis is sub-par. They should really reevaluate the program, since there is so much potential but not the best direction.

  • This campus is awesome and getting better all the time. Definitely needs a truly free and available WiFi though...
  • UNR has a medical diagnosis program for autism. They are wonderful.

  • Very big campus and seemed organized
