"I am extremely excited to be a part of the William S. Boyd School of Law," Symanski said. "No one loves UNLV more than me. I'm looking forward to becoming a full-time student again at UNLV.
"Las Vegas is a great community and the Runnin' Rebels program will always have a special place in my heart."
Symanski received his degree in business administration from UNLV in 1987. He received his master's from UNLV in public administration in 1994.
He enjoyed an outstanding career in the hotel industry for 10 years. He worked at the Tropicana Hotel from 1987-93 and at The Luxor from 1993-97. He currently works at Craig P. Kenny and Associates and he is anxious to begin his new career in law.
