S.T.A.R.S (Student Technologist Association in Radiological Sciences) is an organization that was formed in 1998. The purpose is to unite all students in the Medical Imaging Programs at UNLV. It was formed to give students academic support, pride in the profession, and an avenue to network. Essentially, it was, and always will be a group that helps, assists, and enhances students to be better professionals. Our students are a diverse group of individuals which vary both in age and backgrounds. S.T.A.R.S. helps blend the diversity of our group into a cohesive family type group which fosters teamwork, respect, and a mutual goal of being the best we can be.
