  • We Got This

    Transitioning 5,000 courses to remote instruction in the middle of the semester has certainly created challenges for the UNLV community. We're making it happen despite hiccups, the odd dog barking in the middle of a class, and maybe a touch of homebound restlessness. Hear what a group of Honors College students have to say about the lessons of this moment in which we find ourselves.

  • Five Things to Know About Returning to Campus

    When we come back to UNLV during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ll have to adopt new behaviors to keep each other safe. Here are five things you should know: 1 - Signs. Look for signs posted throughout campus and follow their instructions carefully. 2 - Masks. Masks are required for everyone on campus in outdoor and indoor public spaces. 3 - Social Distancing. Masks are not a substitute for social distancing. It takes both to stop the spread. Public spaces have been altered to help maintain social distancing. 4 - Social interaction. At this time, staying apart is the best way to show you care. Greet friends and colleagues with a wave instead of a hug or handshake. Arrange virtual meetings or study groups. Avoid crowded spaces. 5 - Mindset. We are all navigating these guidelines for the first time, so confusion and conflicts may arise.

    Dripping in the golden desert sun and spread across 350 acres in the heart of Las Vegas, UNLV provides nowhere-else opportunities in this 24-hour metropolis.
