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.
The location of the college is tucked in a beautiful forest. There were more trees years ago but it is still beautiful. The air quality is better than surrounding counties. Public transportation comes to the college. Housing isn't the cheapest but it is affordable with a roommate (1 Bedroom 750-900) or (2bedroom $950-$1220) on average. The college has a great Art department and University hybrid building on campus. The soccer team is successful and rich people donate often to the community college.
