Nevada: One of the best "outdoor" universities

It's a bit off-topic from the normal Nevada Athletics realm here, but thought we'd pass along something that most of us here in Northern Nevada already know: The University of Nevada is situated in a perfect environment for outdoor enthusiasts.

"Outside" magazine recently announced its top universities for those looking for "adventure, grit, sweat, a worthy struggle, tested endurance, goosebump-inducing views, wide-open skies, maybe some roiling water."

The University of Nevada came in at No. 23 on the list, with the magazine noting: "With 79 percent possible sunny days per year and a trove of places to ski, hike, raft, paddle, sail, and tube, Nevada's student body gets out a lot, a fact helped by the more than 20 classes that require fieldwork."
