The College of Southern Nevada is definitely a good option if you want to start out small in college. In-person classes usually do not have more than 20-30 students. You could also take all of your classes online and you would not have to leave the comfort of your home! In addition, students can take 4 week and 8 week classes which are more accelerated but you get the class over with faster. Students can take these 4 and 8 week classes online as well. CSN give students plenty of options to choose when and where students can take their classes. Likewise, students can choose their professor using RatemyProfessor.com to find the best professor. CSN does not offer much in food, so it is best that students find places to eat on their own.

CSN was a pretty interesting school! There were three different campuses, which I thought was awesome because you got to experience all different things for example at the Charleston campus that campus was huge compared to the others so it kind of reminded me like a university it had many different events so that was the main campus. The only thing that made it difficult was when they kept changing the requirements for the degree I was trying to go for, which was nursing.
From my experiences, CSN online classes are incredibly easy and really well structured. Professors are really easy to get ahold of and are great at explaining things, even through a screen, due to the nature of the class. I find that the workload is manageable and easy! Highly recommend their online classes!
