What makes a great story?

  • Drama — A good feature story has compelling human-interest angles and can be told with emotion, irony, conflict, adversity, or humor. So don't just tells us about the accomplishments of a person or program; tell us a memorable anecdote.
  • Impact — How is the person or program solving our most vexing problems, bettering our community, changing lives, or shaping our future? Tell us more than, "She's a dedicated teacher."
  • Timeliness — Is there something that makes this story notable right now?
  • Broad appeal — Will it appeal to a wide range of UNLV's stakeholders (alumni, students, donors, the community in general)?


In particular, we’re looking for individuals in one or more of the following categories:

First-Generation Students

Students or graduates who illustrate the importance of access to higher education and the power it can have on improving the lives of Nevada’s families. Submit a story »

Scholarship Recipients

Students or graduates who, without the scholarship, would not have gone to college. Tell us what makes them especially unique — how they overcame adversity or have been able to give back to their community as a result of the support they received. Submit a story »


Alumni who are doing something truly amazing in the professional or personal lives. Tell us why this particular graduate is especially noteworthy or interesting. Submit a story »

Other Story Ideas

Do you have other stories or ideas you want to share? Tell us how our professors and students are shaping the future now or how a university program is making life better. Submit a story »
