School Spirit and Traditions

We may be young, but we are mighty, and we have 
established many traditions in our short history. Whether 
kicking off the school year with Premier UNLV or fighting 
for the right to paint the Fremont Cannon, our Rebel pride shines through.

Our Traditions

Long before Premier UNLV became a campus staple, a number of social events marked the beginning of the fall semester. From the Rebel Roast, a pre-class picnic and BBQ on the beaches of Lake Mead to the Howdy Dance, where new and old students got to mingle on the dance floor, Rebels knew how to kick off the school year with fun and flair.
