I have had a tremendous experience at CSN. I have had classes that felt like a breeze to some that to a lot of effort. The professors are all interesting in their own right. It makes the whole atmosphere a lot less intimidating. I remember my first semester being very nerve wracking. As soon as I got into my first class I felt pretty welcomed. Either that or the others had the same feeling of dread I had. It was nice to say the least because my professors all helped me with what courses I should take. Gave out directions and overall just told me not to think too hard about it. It's just like high school except with degrees. The food is great. The various campuses have a whole lot of choices to offer. It helps with there being three campuses because Las Vegas is fairly big. There is generally a campus within your proximity. So that is another plus. I will definitely enjoy my experience there while it lasts!
Review College of Southern Nevada
First off, CSN cares deeply for the tutoring department and does all it can for the FREE tutoring services made available daily for any enrolled student. We even have courses dedicated to preventing students from dropping their courses and wasting their money. The professors here are either amazing or terrible. Books are a scam no matter where you go. That's part of college, get used to it. Don't complain, because you signed yourself up for it, and you can quit whenever you like. This is a fairly small college servicing thousands of students from an insanely diverse and overpopulated city. Not sure why so many have Ivy League standards for a community college with standard education and curriculums.

CSN will save you money for your core courses, undoubtedly. It will also ensure that you learn something, as long as you put in the effort. Fin aid is easy to register for and obtain. Food choices are tasty but pricey. And finally, the tiny library is pretty great.
I liked how affordable the education is. I believe having the options of transferring to UNLV really, really helps! I do think since many locals want to attend this cheap offer, it gets tooo crowded, so maybe if they build a bigger campus it would seem fair.
