The student section of the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels, known as The Rebellion, creates an amazing game-day atmosphere during home games. It has been nationally recognized as one of the most inventive student sections in college basketball.
One of our longest-standing traditions, Premier UNLV officially welcomes students to campus at the beginning of every academic year. This tradition includes free commemorative t-shirts, fun activities, and special guest performances. The highlight of the evening – students gathering together to form the letters U-N-L-V with light sticks while fireworks light up the scene.
One of college football’s most memorable trophies – the Fremont Cannon – is awarded to the winner of the annual rivalry football game. Each year, UNLV battles the University of Nevada, Reno for the right to paint the cannon Scarlet and Gray.
A time-honored UNLV tradition, Homecoming brings together students, parents, and alumni to celebrate their Rebel spirit. The week-long celebration honors our history and includes special events, activities, and performances.
