Breaking Tradition and Finding Success 
The college journey of a "typical" UNLV Rebel is ever-evolving and more complex.

Antarctic group photo
35 hearty travelers from Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and Michigan rendezvoused in Ushuaia, Argentina in early December to set out on a journey of a lifetime. Over ten days they explored the world's southernmost waters and continent. For some, the trip checked the seventh and final continent off their travel wish-list. For others, it was an opportunity to see and photograph landscapes and wildlife they had only ever read about. For all, it was a chance to learn about this stunning but sometimes forbidding part of our planet.
