It’s a whole different world if you venture a few yards beyond Maryland Parkway into the center of the UNLV campus. Energy-efficient architecture houses the labs of the Science and Engineering Building. The Marjorie Barrick Museum’s art and artifacts offer lessons in humanity. A four-story rec center defies that niggling commuter-campus perception. So take your kid for a walk along the lush lawns and past the lucky Hey Reb! statue. Remind him of the real reason he should come here. It’s not just to save on student loans and train for a job; it’s to learn how to fix the problems of his community. Economic diversification? Cultural development? Natural-resources management? Here is where he can stop being a kid and start becoming a Las Vegan—one who will make his hometown a better place.
