Best colleges in Las Vegas

What Happens in Vegas Stays on Your Transcripts

Show me the money-and the classrooms and restaurants

Known for their casino-hotels, exquisite dining experiences, and unforgettable shows along The Strip, the last thing you'd associate with Vegas is their academics. Surprisingly enough, Las Vegas has more than 25 postsecondary schools and is home to the 3rd largest community college in the United States. With an obvious advantage for hospitality and tourism students, other industries are also finding success in the City of Lights. Future chefs, cosmetologists, healthcare professionals and artists alike have also found lucrative careers in Vegas-and not by getting lucky at blackjack.

You don't have to love free booze, slot machines and loud music to have a good time in Sin City, although it doesn't hurt. There are other things to do. Ride the New York, New York rollercoaster or glide down the SlotZilla zip line that opened this year. Visit Vegas' version of the "Eiffel Tower" or Mandalay Bay's Shark Reef aquarium, where certified divers can swim with sharks. There are also 4 golf courses, over 25 parks, numerous 5 star restaurants, and countless museums. If you can learn to work hard before you play hard, the next step to your education may be in one of the most frequently visited destinations in the country, Vegas Baby!
