In the southwestern state of Nevada, hospitality and entertainment reign supreme. Home to sequin-studded Las Vegas and casino-charged Reno, Nevada is nestled in the Great Basin and Mojave Desert. Nevada has 12 public and private colleges and universities and almost 15 for-profit institutions in Las Vegas, Reno, Henderson, Paradise, and more.* Interested in hospitality & tourism, legal services, or nursing? Much of the state’s economy is linked to tourism and entertainment, which makes sense in a state that has 15 of the 25 world’s largest hotel rooms and countless casinos, shopping centers, event venues, and restaurants. Billions of dollars pour into the state through tourism and gaming each year, so business degree holders will always be highly sought after.
Now we know if you’re anywhere near Vegas, you’re going to have trouble focusing on studies. But if you’re anywhere outside Sin City, you’ll have different kinds of distractions. Nevada has gorgeous desert landscapes for photography junkies and plenty of opportunities to lounge poolside. Lake Mead, the Colorado River and Lake Tahoe (among others) offer watersports and scenic views, while Nevada’s 172 mountain summits of at least 2,000 feet make it the most mountainous state in the country by measure.* Whether you hit the slopes or hit the casinos, it’s easy to strike gold in Nevada.Click Here to See the Best Colleges in the US*Bureau of Labor Statistics *Wikipedia, “List of colleges and universities in Nevada”
