Some of the info on here is wrong...there is wireless in pretty much all the, also there is tons and tons more that should be in the other organization sections, like the MANY professional societies and tons of clubs, anything you like to do theres probably a club. Also it doesnt mention our brand new state of the art 4 story gym and intermurals for EVERY sport (with the exception of martial arts) and video game intermurals. So come to UNLV!!!!!! :) posted Sep 9th, 2009 10:59 pm
