When I’m not here at the RN&R providing you with the lowdown on Reno’s green scene, you’ll most likely find me in the library trudging my way through graduate school. I’ve been a University of Nevada, Reno student since 2006, and have spent most of the past six years on campus. I’ve worked in almost every library—even Getchell in the good ol’ days—written for every student publication, and lived in several of the residence halls, so I like to think that by now I’ve learned a thing or two about being a UNR student.
The most important thing I’ve learned is that college is what you make of it. It’s a cliché, but it really can be the best years of your life if you get involved, challenge yourself and immerse yourself in what you love, inside and outside the classroom. It’s up to you to take control of what you want your experience to be.
And here in this year’s guide, we’ve provided plenty of information to get your school year off to a good start, including roundups on campus eats, helpful web resources and cool clubs. Our campus map will help you find your way to class. Brad Bynum chats with music man Jason Altieri, UNR’s director of orchestras. We also share a peek at the new living learning community residence hall, and I share some tips I learned from my time as a resident assistant.
Whether you’re a new undergrad fresh out of high school, a transfer student needing a change, or a graduate student delving into advanced academia for the first time, there’s plenty for you to experience at the University of Nevada, Reno. Welcome to the Pack!
