While it can be a little confusing to navigate sometimes, almost everyone you come into contact with is super helpful and will guide you to where you need to go.
Navigating their online web pages can be a bit confusing, they have multiple pages that say similar but different things
The campus and weather really caught my eye the first time I went. The lecture halls are huge and the professors are hit or miss but there are always good professors who are willing to help and are truly dedicated to their job. In my experience, people are outgoing and easy to talk to, especially the Teaching Assistants in lab courses. Everyone wants everyone to succeed and no one is afraid to help. There will be professors that are not good at teaching as they should be but if you can put in the work and dedicate time outside of lectures, then the class will be fairly easy.
The campus is on a hill and often you will be walking up and downhill from one end of campus to the other end. The weather is also all over the place but usually, it is fairly nice.
There are a lot of on-campus resources for students who live on and off-campus. It's very easy to access resources to help with education, transportation, and academic advancement. There are a lot of events that happen on campus. Keep an eye out for all the club and even entertainment events that come up weekly. There are a lot of ways to gain student discounts locally as well.
So far they seem to be very present in the community and everyone is proud to be a member of the Wolf Pack.
Their party culture is more present than I would personally enjoy at this point in my life.
Mainly the academics side of things. Lots of scholarship opportunities, helpful professors and your tuition covers a lot of different services (Tutoring Center, library, TA's, PASS, etc.) to help you succeed in class.
The food is horrible and the parking is even worse. Get off the meal plan and move off campus as soon as they'll let you.
UNR is a cozy campus where most buildings are in the same region with beautiful scenery surrounding the town. The staff heavily considers student input and tries to ease our struggles.
Continual construction on buildings meant one day your usual path to class may be blocked without warning and now you're extra late to class.
