When I applied, College of Southern Nevada had an Associates Degree Program called "Associates of Science- Mathematics Emphasis." Unfortunately this program was discontinued shortly after I applied.

However, the staff members at the Mathematics department have been very helpful, whether I was their former student or not. CSN has a Math Resource Center that is available to all students that struggle with Mathematics, along with limited free one-on-one tutoring. Wanting to achieve my undergraduate and graduate degree in Mathematics and having the desire to become a Mathematics instructor, I have voluntarily offered tutoring to there struggling students, as I now also take part in the tutoring center.
I love the diverse age group of students at CSN and also all the various cultures expressed that you see on campus. I have had quite a few amazing professors as well. Something that is a huge struggle for me is the cost of tuition. It especially gets frustrating when the general requirements that have nothing to do with the degree must be taken and they cost quite a bit of money! It would be amazing if the general core courses that are required were offered for free and the vocational classes had to be paid for.
College of Southern Nevada unexpectedly has been a wonderful experience for me. It was supposed to be a stepping stone to transfer smoothly into University of Las Vegas, and my main purposes were to save tuition fees, and acquire credits for my prerequisite classes.

However, after attending classes at CSN for a year now, my entire perspective has changed. The instructors have great skills/abilities, and strong desire to pass down their knowledge to their students. It has several academic success programs, with I am currently taking part in. My goal is to teach college level Mathematics, and CSN plays a huge part in my life, while I further my teaching skills through tutoring.

Diversity can be spotted at CSN, for there are many foreign students, and students aged up to their 50's. CSN provides equal opportunity to all students, especially through their Disability Resource Center or academic programs. CSN is also the first college in Nevada to provide immigrants the opportunity to apply for scholarships. A college that wants every student to success demonstrates the mental state of the college. Furthermore, CSN counselors have guided me to a better path, advising myself (and many other students) with a little bit of personal touch. If I could start college all over again, I would definitely want to start to College of Southern Nevada.
