Welcome to Sagebrushers, the podcast of the University of Nevada, Reno. Brian Sandoval, proud graduate and president of the University of Nevada, Reno, is your host. In each episode at Sagebrushers, which by the way was our university's first nickname, we take a closer look at the people, history and future of our beloved University. We explain why the University, ever since its founding in Elko in 1874, has been about so much more than ourselves and why we remain Nevada's best experiment in understanding who we are and what we are capable of achieving.
