Student Engagement

There are numerous ways for you to get involved in the College of Liberal Arts (COLA). Research shows that the more involved you are in college life, the more likely you are to stay in school and graduate. Included are some ways to engage in COLA programs and activities to make the most of your student experience.

COLA Mentoring Programs were created to support specified students and promote their successful transition to UNLV by assigning them an experienced student peer or alumni mentor as a dependable guide for the semester.

Internships integrate knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skill development in a professional setting. All undergraduate students are encouraged to complete an internship!

The UNLV College of Liberal Arts Dean’s Student Advisory Council is a student-led group that serves as the voice for undergraduate students within the college, addresses salient issues that are relevant to the student experience, and connects the administration and study body to encourage growth and community.

Through the perspective of current COLA students and industry professionals, REB Talks aims to inspire, educate, and motivate listeners on career development and cultivating a success-driven mindset. This podcast is a collaboration between the College of Liberal Arts ⁠Dean's Student Advisory Council⁠ and ⁠Industry Leader Advisory Council⁠, among other campus and community partnerships.
