Hallo! My name is Michael, and I am in my second year (of five) preparing for a PhD in Economics/Biostatistics. A local to the Las Vegas valley, I have always had scarlet blood. I am excited to join the rest of the Rebel bloggers and share my experiences at UNLV. As a student worker, Honors student, undergraduate researcher, and student organization founder and president, I look forward to sharing my adventures and hope to hear from your epic Rebel journey.
I am sure that you have many questions pertaining to UNLV, the college lifestyle, what Las Vegas is like, and how to prepare for the next step of your life- whether it be a job or graduate school. Please do not hesitate to contact any of the Rebel bloggers. We look forward to hearing from you. Auf wiedersehen!

Hey Rebels! My name is Catelyn and I am a student preparing for an PhD with a Juris Doctorate dual degree.
College is an amazing world in itself, and it's a little scary. Just in my first year I changed my major three times (Kinesiology to Biology to Business).
My first year was also full of trial and error and many experiences. I ran a Tough Mudder with the Honors College, founded a club, was on the UNLV Ballroom team, and became an Orientation Leader!
Although it is just my second year, I am excited to help provide you the amazing tips, tricks, and experiences that the authors of the blogs wanted to share.
Welcome to our amazing Rebel Community.

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.

Previously the editor and creator of the Rebel Rundown, it was my mission to spread my love of UNLV to as many future Rebels as I could. I worked as a student worker in the Office of Admissions for 3 1/2 years of my undergraduate career, where I interacted with prospective UNLV students daily. I love so much about UNLV that even though I just graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in May 2018, I have chosen to further my education at UNLV by starting my Master's in Higher Education in Fall 2018. I am currently a Career Counselor in UNLV Career Services, where I get to work with current and past UNLV students to achieve their career goals. I love my job and loved my time at UNLV. Hopefully your Rebel experience is as great as mine was for me. Welcome to the Rebel Family!
