  • We've been to the Keck many time, and it never fails to fascinate. The specimens are laid out with information and one can learn quite a bit. Besides, who knew rocks could be so utterly beautiful.  more »
  • I went here for the first time last month for an event, and while there, I took a couple extra hours to tour the whole campus and enjoy it. I was surprised that we had such a nice campus up here. A co...  more »

  • Love this place. The campus is pretty amazing. Great facilities. And the Wolf Pack Basketball Team is fun to watch!
  • This university is big enough to provide a tier 1 education yet professors still find time for students. I spent my junior and senior years here and most of my professors still can find time to give me some advice while I prepare for graduate school. Some people and the media have pointed out that Mr. Peter Cvjetanovic is a student at UNR, he does receive some protection under the first amendment which is why he was not expelled. But also remember that Colin Kapernick was a quarterback for the UNR Wolf Pack before he graduated and went pro. I feel that Mr. Kapernick has made a much greater impact than Cvjetanovic. On the nation and in history. By exercising his first amendment rights which are also protected. Sometimes we have to tolerate seeing and hearing things we don't want to protect our own rights. That is something I learned at UNR.
  • Still employing a nazi and white supremist, while you spew equality and anti hate.
  • The school has been known for being a Nazi sympathizing institution for employing & enrolling Peter Cvjetanovic. After calling their office to see what resources would be given to students of color, they referred me to simply review the President's statement. This provides no sense of reassurance or the will to progress after making a disgusting mistake.
  • Their inability to properly Transfer a student and Lack of leadership in their administration is a problem. UNR needs to put more time in effort into their Organizational building then their pretty buildings.

Where to stay in Reno

Since Reno's casinos want you to save your money for the blackjack table, they offer some very reasonable rates on their rooms. Even a stay in one of the amenity-rich resort- or spa-style casinos downtown can be quite affordable. Plenty of hotels, motels, inns, and lodges are scattered throughout town, though most lie in and around downtown. If you're planning to ski in the mountains west of town, staying near Interstate 80 can save a couple minutes on your commute. Accommodations in Reno generally remain easy to find, but the days before and after the popular Burning Man festival in the desert east of the city tend to see a bump in visitors. Consider booking ahead if your visit coincides with the festival.
