The Great Outdoors

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 try to find the UNLV letters in the Talisman.
