The museum at the school of mines has a wonderful exhibit of rocks - gems, minerals, etc. Our grandchildren (13 yrs old) enjoyed it.

One of the prettiest quads you'll find anywhere surrounded by old brick buildings proudly overseeing great education. Many areas of study excel here, and the community is tight and supportive. Lots of good times to be had here!

Easy access to a great/beautiful campus via Virginia Street with parking garages right at the main area across from the Student Union (Joe Crowley Center), Library, Basketball & Football Stadiums. Stop by "the Joe" and sign up for a free 2-hour tour of Nevada and be prepared to be impressed! (Includes lots of information and a free t-shirt!)

A warm feeling, beautiful campus, well-maintained, dedicated staff and faculty. 2013 graduation was well-orchestrated and went smoothly.
