University of Never Leaving Vegas
The only university that students who have spent the majority of their life in Vegas will ever go to. Between Vegas and Reno, the obvious choice is Vegas, which is why many never leave Vegas. Only those who have never been out of their local neighborhoods would think that Reno is the better choice.
There are a select few students from Green Valley High School who acheive the grades and recommendations necessary to go to college elsewhere, but even they apply to UNLV as a backup.
This mindset is promoted by all the high school counselors since it reduces their workload to essentially nothing.
Counselor: "So, Tony, you've applied to UNLV, right?"
Tony: "Actually, I was really hoping to go out of state."
Counselor: "Right... well, did you try UNR?"
Tony: "No, but that's not even--"
Counselor: "Then you should probably just stick with UNLV."
