Overview

UNLV is about 50 years old, yet has a large enrollment of over 22,000 undergrads. Given its resource-poor locale, it is notable that UNLV has been recognized for its urban sustainability efforts. But perhaps most people know UNLV for its Runnin’ Rebels basketball squad, which was one of the NCAA’s most-successful teams during the 1980s and 1990s. The school has also garnered a national reputation in other sports over the years, including golf.
