Local Mall Hosts UNLV Day Sunday
Local Mall Hosts UNLV Day Sunday


Looking to promote more than just its athletics department in the local community, UNLV will host an event at The Galleria at Sunset this weekend.

The mall will host UNLV Day from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. The university will have information and displays available from many of its departments – from admissions to alumni to athletics – for interested students, parents, community partners and athletic fans. There will also be activities for kids introducing them to UNLV and higher education. 

“UNLV is a vital partner in our community and it’s important that we let people know of the opportunities that we offer,” said UNLV President Neal Smatresk. “This will be a great way to find out more about becoming a Rebel and for those who are to celebrate with us.” 

Starting at noon, the first 200 people to visit the UNLV ticketing table on the ground floor will receive a Rebel vanity case. Giveaways and drawings will also be held during the event. Representatives from UNLV Athletics will be on hand to meet and greet fans. 

There will also be entertainment throughout the afternoon from UNLV’s cheerleaders, the Vegas Vanguard Entertainment Drumline and SweetSpot Entertainment 15-year-old recording artist LexRox, who recently released “Runnin’ with the Rebels.” 

Anyone wearing UNLV Rebel gear will also receive free admission that day into FunTown FrightFest, a carnival hosted by Peoples Autism Foundation located in the south parking lot of the Galleria at Sunset. 

UNLV celebrates Homecoming Week October 31 to November 5.
