A very relaxed person who wants to focus on school but also make a living afterwards and during their time at school. Since the cost of living is so low in Las Vegas there is so much more work available to enjoy the environment and what Las Vegas has to offer such as the strip and the great hiking trails in the mountains along with snowboarding and skiing. Most students are usually confident and stress free and enjoy what they do and really show it.

The university of las vegas is one of the most diverse schools when it comes to ethnicity. From what I have seen a lot of students are party goers (when they have time), If you prefer a hot climate with city-life you might like UNLV.

UNLV is for students who don't want to go into too much debt. UNLV offers cheap tuition for everyone, especially to Nevada residents. A typical student is either laid-back or really loud and crazy. UNLV is a very diverse community and we like to include everyone. We believe in unity. I think UNLV is for someone who wants a new change in their life. Las Vegas can be pretty exciting and you'll never be bored when you're out here.

A typical student at UNLV is unafraid of the grueling summer weather that Las Vegas is known to boast in their reputation. This breeds students who have a determination to get through some of the most uncomfortable challenges to past the trials that any college or university will bestow upon a student. Students will also tend to be more oriented for a city campus, something that allows one to feel they are a part of a big moving element in a busy and admirable city.

A typical UNLV student is very open-minded. Realistically speaking, I cannot say all are compatible with one another. However, a majority of the student body is very helpful to one another. Everyone here is very curious, not the nosey curious, but curious of the different cultures we all come from. A student from UNLV will most likely have a high interest to travel and learn not just one way of looking at things, but understand an abundance of ways. It's one of the reasons why UNLV is deemed one of the most diverse univeristies in America! Students here are genuinely interested in learning and participating with other cultures.

The diverse population of students we have at our school makes it very difficult to describe your typical UNLV student. They're very sociable because of the amount of tourists in town and international students as well. People who love being around people should attend this school. There are so many different opportunities to meet people here. Also, UNLV is known for its hospitality program for those who want to pursue a career in the hotel and restaurant business. Can't forget to mention people here in the spring or the summer must be willing to take the heat!

UNLV is largely populated by local students, it is a great example of a commuter school that takes students from all walks of life. There is a strong international presence felt in our engineering and hotel-management colleges, and the dorms are a strong indicator of their numbers on campus. However the typical student is a valley born, loves the sun, relaxed type of person who is going through university for any reason from owning their own business to helping their parents out financially by gaining a degree. We have a strong showing of diversity in our campus, and I don't think there is any one type of student who should attend.

Most UNLV students commute to and from school, making it more difficult to create lasting relationships. Therefore, I would say that a student planning on attending the university should be outgoing and not afraid to talk to other students. There is a ton of resources available on campus, so a person who values their education and wants to make the most of their time at college is perfect for UNLV.

I can't say that there is a typical UNLV student. Coming from a city like Las Vegas, I know that all of our schools are diverse and in my public school career I have seen all types of people, all types of religions, and all types of personalities. This is not much different for a place like UNLV, which is not only home to people from Vegas, but also for people across the U.S. One thing is in common with all of these students: the clothing. With the hot long summers the typical attire of a student is shorts and a t-shirt and these people can be seen running from the shade to the comforts of the air conditioned buildings.

Las Vegas is a place for active and engaging people with a lot of energy. I am in the Hotel College, which is entirely focused on service industries. Students need to be able to respond to a barrage of stimuli with consistency and professionalism in order to succeed in this school and in the industries it prepares them for. They also have to be fun and adventurous. People from all over the world come to Las Vegas to have a great time and to be entertained. A dull personality simply will not do.

There is not a single picture I could paint of the students at this university as many of us come from different walks of life as well as many students that are transferring to Nevada and not having a deep or rich set of roots in Las Vegas. The students at my school are adventurers and are not nervous with new situations. They are relaxed and stressed all at the same time. The typical student here enters with an idea and overtime watch that idea morph under the experiences they accumulate and this is their growth. In a simple term, they are seedlings, looking to grow.
