University of Nevada, Reno - Bachelor's Degree
University of Nevada, Reno was established in 1874 as the State University of Nevada in Elko, Nev. The university moved to Reno in 1885, and in 1891, it presented its first diplomas to a graduating class of just three. In the early 1900's, the university was influenced by John Mackay, an Irish immigrant whose heirs bequeathed more than 1.5 million dollars towards many campus facilities that included the Mackay School of Mines building, and the Mackay Science Hall. The picturesque campus attracted Hollywood producers in the 1940's, who used the campus as a setting for films starring famous stars Shirley Temple, and Mickey Rooney.
