  • Social events to interact with like-minded peers
  • Priority enrollment putting honors students first in line to register for classes

Undergraduate Research

Nevada has long been at the forefront of a national trend to involve undergraduate students in research that addresses the important issues of our time. This includes mentoring relationships between faculty and undergraduate students as well as promotion, support and publicity for undergraduate research in all disciplines at the University.
