'Nevada Previews' to introduce students to university

10/12/2010 - By: John Trent

Now that the school year is in full swing in high schools throughout the state of Nevada, the University of Nevada, Reno will be holding “Nevada Previews” in Las Vegas and Reno in the coming days.

“Nevada Previews” are recruiting events where prospective students meet with representatives from the university’s colleges, as well as housing and financial aid advisors. The informative sessions give high school and transfer students an inside look at the college admission process. Panels of current University of Nevada students will also be on hand to provide answers to questions about campus life, the college experience and what it means to become a member of the Wolf Pack.

“Our ‘Nevada Previews’ are a great way for prospective students to become acquainted with what our campus has to offer them, both academically and socially,” said Adam Stoltz, associate director of admissions at the university. “It’s an important introduction to the many exciting aspects to being a student at Nevada.”

Las Vegas previews will be held on Oct. 13-14. On Oct. 13, the preview will be held at Sunset Station in Henderson from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Those attending should use the parking lot off Sunset Road and Marks Street and meet in the Sunset Room. On Oct. 14, the preview will be held at the Suncoast Hotel & Casino in Summerlin, in Ballroom A and D, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. To find out more about “Nevada Previews,” contact the university’s Las Vegas Office for Prospective Students at: (702) 940-5416.
