The Great Outdoors

Recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree Campus USA, our entire 330-acre campus is an arboretum — an outdoor museum for trees and shrubs, both native and introduced.

Unique Academic Spaces

From the golf pro shop and test kitchen in Hospitality Hall to the custom-designed training center for nursing students where manikins talk, blood is made by the gallon, and life-saving skills are mastered, our innovative spaces enhance learning experiences for students.

Instagram Worthy

Our campus has many interesting sites — some just begging to be the star of your next selfie. Pose with a 38-foot tall Flashlight created by sculptors Claes Oldenburg and Cooje Van Bruggen, take a seat in the Ghost Chair alongside a statue of legendary coach Jerry Tarkanian, or rub the Hey Reb! mustache in his bronze replica for good luck.
