Naturally, most of us feel and remember only the large earthquakes, like the jolts that rattled through south Reno a few days before Christmas this past year. Or the 2008 swarm that went on for months that felt like years in west Reno. And there are less noticeable earthquakes occurring all the time as well.

Not only is northern Nevada earthquake country, it’s also the epicenter of worldwide earthquake research that’s happening every day right here at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Fiber optic cable usually brings to mind rapid telecommunications and data transfer. The high-tech, hair-breadth cable has also become a critical environmental device being used by a researcher at the University of Nevada, Reno. It helps measure the water temperatures in Lake Tahoe, European glaciers and Cambodia's waterways. Even controlled burns in Arizona have benefited from soil temp measurements using this technology.

Not only will our world in the coming decades have possibly two billion more people consuming significantly more food, that food will need to be produced in harsher climates with less water. Solutions to such daunting realities are at the heart of the work of the University of Nevada, Reno's College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources (CABNR).

The University of Nevada, Reno campus is about ready to welcome another record number of students when classes begin Aug. 24, and there’s a group of freshmen who are getting a head start Aug. 16-20.

While incoming freshmen may see their first year of college as the "thirteenth grade," they are often surprised by the immediate intensity of, and adjustment required for, university-level study. Success in college requires a new mindset along with a higher level of preparation that many freshmen just aren't ready for as classes get underway. 

  

A national honor has highlighted the achievements of a University of Nevada, Reno leader, and elevated the university's profile internationally.

The study of psychology has a wide range of applications, not merely in clinical and mental health fields, according to Victoria Follette, Ph.D, Foundation Professor of Psychology and chair of the University of Nevada, Reno's Department of Psychology. With most jobs involving an understanding of people and their behavior and motivations at some level, psychology can be a valuable course of study for virtually any career path.
