For several year now, we have held season tickets for these performances. This group just keeps getting better and better. Nightengale Hall is the perfect venue for this Orchestra, the acoustics are exceptional. We will be purchasing season tickets for next year!

I study now in this University and is a good place. It's so big and beautiful. If you want study here it's great, but I think it isn't really touristic

The University of Nevada at Reno campus is a very nice surprise for most people. Beautiful setting, great place to see local history, especially the geology museum. Also a wide spectrum of intercollegiate athletics, lectures, concerts, picnics, planetarium and a beautiful place to walk around

Beautiful campus. Be sure to check out the state of the art library. Take a camera in Fall and Spring for the excellent photo opportunities.

3 years ago we started a search with our son for the university he would attend. The other campus we visited did not compare to UNR. From the buildings to the backdrop of mountains and downtown Reno, this place is gorgeous. Oh and did I mention it is a Tier I, DI school? Run with Pack!!!!

The UNR is a great college. We toured the Dorms and Facilities at the college. Their is a new dorm building being built near the college which is awesome. Loved the Wolf Den, the food was outstanding.

New building and developments have improved the look and feel of the campus. The football venue is fine but for the number of east side seats packed in. Only a section full of 12 year olds could sit comfortably on the east side.

With right at 20,000 students, UNR is not only "THE University" in Nevada (older and larger than UNLV), but it's one of the few state universities considered a "tier one" school. With a major commitment to research and a reducing student-faculty ratio, the university promises to increase its "creme de la creme" ranking. The personal interest that faculty and administration...
