About the  University of Nevada, Reno

  • By 1958, with 2,000 students attending classes, the institution was on the verge of dramatic change. New colleges of education and business were in their first years. The student body, which had not had a student center building for the first 70 years of the University's tenure in Reno, finally had a headquarters with the opening of the Jot Travis Student Union. This union was replaced In November 2007 by the Joe Crowley Student Union, one of the most transformational buildings ever built on campus. This 167,000-square-foot, "green" environmentally friendly facility signals a shift in campus expansion, offering the campus and community a new centrally located "front door" to the University from Virginia Street. It is named in honor of University President Joe Crowley, whose 23-year tenure as the institution's chief executive is a record. In 2008, one of the nation's most technologically advanced libraries, the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center, opened next to the Crowley Student Union, further signaling the campus' move north. President Charles Armstrong and vice president William Wood stimulated research programs on campus in 1959 with the creation of the Desert Research Institute (DRI) and its affiliated programs of atmospheric physics, desert biology, anthropological studies, computer science and water resources. DRI was a University division focusing on research examining Nevada's arid land resources. By 1969, under President N. Edd Miller, the campus had doctoral programs in more than a dozen specialties, and had created a School of Medical Sciences. In the last 35 years, the University has met the challenges of leadership in what is now the fastest-growing state in the country, with its enrollment rising to more than 17,000 students in fall 2010.

陳怡靜

這是我人生中第一次出國,也是第一次自己一個人遠行。最開始出國的初衷就只是希望能夠把語文能力提升,長時間的課程加上實際的生活體驗,讓我得到的不僅僅只是語文能力的提升,更多的是文化與實際生活體驗所帶來的影響。在內華達的這段時間,除了上課之外,因為希望可以趁著聖誕假期時間遊覽整個國家,所以也自己著手開始規畫行程。從最開始的規劃、自己找相關的旅行社、預定旅行期間所有的住宿、前往的渡輪、回程的機票或是到當地報名參加活動,所有的過程都是自己獨立完成。之所以能夠自己一手完成這些,我想是因為在內華達大學利諾分校上課的過程中,學校老師給的鼓勵,所以在很多需要英語溝通的地方自己都變得相對於以往有自信,然而寄宿家庭也帶給我莫大的影響,他們教我用正向的態度去面對遇到的難題。我記憶中很深刻的事情是,有幾天我因為內華達連續幾天的雨而顯得有些煩悶,然而家庭告訴我說:如果沒有這些雨,你來到這裡就看不到這麼美麗的風景。雖然只是很簡單的幾句話,影響卻很大。
在還沒有出發之前,我想我和很多人都一樣,認為出國是一件算還蠻了不起的事情,好像出去一趟就會有所成就,一切都會很順利,但事實上並非如此,不是所有的一切都像想像中美好,生活上還是會有許多大大小小的問題需要自己想辦法解決,藉由這次的留學也讓我成長了許多~~^^
