Lake Tahoe Community College has a great location, beautiful campus with mountains in view. Education here feels very personal because of the small class sizes. Instructors are amazing always willing to help students. I wish they had a better program for pre engineering students. They have the math and science classes but not the engineering classes such as introduction to circuits.
Lake Tahoe Community College has been incredibly helpful with helping me achieve my goals. I've been fortunate enough to receive free tuition to get my AA in history, in order for me to transfer and receive my BA.
