Vegas' four-year state university keeps growing with the city.. In Short With a growing enrollment of over 24,000 students and over 180 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas is the state's biggest commuter school. Comparable to other state schools of its size, UNLV is typical in that some of its departments and programs are stronger than others. Naturally, given its location in the world's top tourist mecca, its School of Hotel Administration is one of the top two in the nation (the other is located at Cornell University). UNLV's most recent source of pride is its new William S. Boyd School of Law.
