The Amazing Colossal UNLV

(Illustration by Chris Jones)

Go big or go home? Hah! That cri de guerre falls limp at the feet of UNLV’s huge, gargantuan, positively preposterous proportions. Behold the sheer magnitude of our biggest projects, places, people, and pipe organs. This is UNLVXL — a dive into the most massive elements of our university. A stainless steel device for studying surface chemistry that takes up an entire room? We’ve got the only one in the world. Plus a book made out of lead that could break a coffee table and not one, not two, but three Runnin’ Rebels topping 7 feet. Take our hand as we stroll through a redwood forest of public art, past a truly super supercomputer, and reach the kitchen equipment you’ll require if you ever need to whip up 60 quarts of mashed potatoes. Super-size me? We already did.
