Two universities -- The University of Nevada, Reno and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas -- have instituted programs aimed at attracting students who are academically gifted to their college campuses. The schools offer a range of programs, from full admission to access to several college courses. "Recruiting this kind of talent to the university takes a team," said Marta Meana, dean of the UNLV Honors College. "The Honors College works closely with admissions to try to attract these students," she said.
