Hi! My name is Bailee and I am a senior here at UNLV! During my years as a Rebel, I've been very involved and active in the campus community. From joining a sorority to being President of the Rebel Events Board, I've been a part of all types of organizations and I can confidently say that getting involved is the best way to make the most out of your time in college. Get out there and join some clubs, and you'll be surprised by the amount of friends and memories you make!
I hope you all have as great of a time at UNLV as I have, and if you have any questions about anything we're here to help!

Major: Business Human Resource Management with Honors

Hey Rebels! My name is Catelyn and I am currently a student at Boyd Law School College after graduating from UNLV as a Business Major. University is an amazing world in itself, and it's a little scary. Just my first year I changed my major three times (Kinesiology to Biology to Business). My years were full of experiences, trials, and errors that grew me into the person I am today. So try everything. Work hard today, but play hard too.
Welcome to our amazing Rebel Community.
Major: Secondary Education- Physical Science
Hometown: Las Vegas, NV
Hello all! My name is Jordan and I am a Senior here at UNLV and wanting to become a high school chemistry or geosceince teacher. College has been an awakening experience for me: I learned how to actually study, I learned how to make friends, and I learned what I wanted to do with my life. College has helped me become a better person overall! Although my first few years of college I didn't do all that much, it wasn't until recently that I got involved. I joined the Orientation Team as a Group Leader and I became a mentor for the PALS Program offered in the College of Education. I hope that my fellow students and myself can help future and current Rebels through their journey here at UNLV.

As a UNLV alumn, Michael sports a Rebel-lious heart, having worked in the Office of Admissions, Academic Success Center, Office of Undergraduate Research, and various departments on campus.
