Amie Callaway

Admission Counselor

Hometown: San Diego, CA

What I like best about UNLV: Definitely the diversity. Being able to see myself reflected in the student body, faculty/staff and even the general Las Vegas population was really important to me as a student, and is now as a professional. Having the opportunity to be involved in conversations and discussions with people who didn't look, think, or act like me was a vital part of my success as a student and helped me be a better all-around person by helping me see from different perspectives. Go Rebs!
