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."

University of Nevada Las Vegas. A poorly put together college in Las Vegas made up of Vegas failures who vow to never leave their sanctuary of gambling. The students at UNLV ignore the fact that UNR is the original and much better college in rankings, scores, colleges, and acceptance rates, so they still choose to go to the ultimate failure school. It is a commuter school with no real college feel.
UNR STUDENT: Hey, why didnt you go to UNR instead of UNLV?


UNR STUDENT: Oh.... well, maybe you made the right choice in college...
