Premier UNLV

Check out Premier UNLV, one of the largest and longest-running traditions on campus, and help us kick off the start of a new school year.


In August 1996, Premier UNLV was created as a major kick-off event to excite students about the upcoming year and connect them to the REBEL experience. Premier UNLV has grown into a cherished tradition and is embraced by all students, new and returning. The event was created by the Student Involvement & Activities (formerly Office of Student Engagement & Diversity, Campus Community Development, Student Involvement and Activities, and Office of Civic Engagement and Diversity), which is a part of the Division of Student Life.  While Rebel Events Board coordinates the planning and production of the event each year, Premier UNLV is a collaborative event, including support from many offices and organizations (e.g., CSUN Student Government, the Office of the President, Athletics, UNLV Marching Band, Campus Housing).
