College Life Rating

UNLV offers tons of D-I sports and intramural sports. There is also Greek Life on campus. UNLV has its own personal police department, which is great for safety. There are also a number of clubs and organizations that people can join at any point in the semester. On the weekends, especially during the first few weeks of the semester, there are an endless amount of parties and events for students to go to on and off campus.

College Life Rating

Students come together in the student union but otherwise do not really have a centralized area outside to interact and thus do not seem encouraged to interact with each other whether to study or just for fun.
