University of Nevada, Reno
The University of Nevada, Reno was founded in 1874 as the State University of Nevada in Elko, Nev., about 300 miles northeast of its present-day campus in Reno. The site for the university preparatory school in eastern Nevada (where no state institutions had previously been located) proved to be impractical, as nearly half of the state's residents lived in the Reno-Carson City area. In 1885, the legislature approved the move of the University from Elko to Reno. Their students come here for a number of reasons, but on the top of that list is the high quality education they provide. They’re proud to be recognized as a National Tier 1 University by U.S. News & World Report. The University’s continued ranking in the top-tier is a statement about the students they attract, the graduates they produce, the quality of their faculty and their world-improving research and creativity. Their campus is beautiful, complete with towering green trees and brick buildings. There are coffee shops, sports, restaurants and a multitude of great study spots. Whether you are a prospective student or already taking classes, feel free to explore and see what makes the campus on the hill so special.
