Pretty decent school, same teachers you would find at CSN and UNLV. Small school, small classes good overall atmosphere. I like that they want you to get involved unlike my experience with CSN. There are clubs and science colloquiums to attend, guest speaker events that I really like. They have a lot of resources and a huge emphasis on being environmentally friendly.

I had a lot of the same students in my classes which is nice you can make friends easily. The only bad aspect that I can really think of is that their isn't a whole lot of variety in sessions. Not too many night classes nor online classes to pick from like CSN. I will graduate later because they don't offer the classes I need at the times I need them or sometimes not at all. I think that if it is required on the degree they should have more than enough of those classes to accommodate students that work or cannot attend in the morning!

The professors and curriculum are excellent but dealing with the administration for enrollment and financial aid can be confusing. The campus is very clean and away from distractions. The students are very friendly as well. The price of tuition is higher than other institutions but is worth it. The books chosen by professors are very good and you will not be forced to learn anything that you do not need to know for your major. Transferring credits to this institution is a breeze and the advisors are available to appointments and walk-ins as well. The school communicates by email, which is very convenient.
Nevada State is an amazing state school. They have smaller class sizes and professors are great at communicating, besides office hours most professor have a 24 hour turnaround on emails and returning phone calls. NSC has many bachelor's programs, but not overwhelming and each program has their own set of advisers.
Personal have never had a problem working with advisers, financial aid or registration people. They even offer a few academic scholarships and grants for students who are struggling financially. Last year, I took a workshop for help with my Praxis Test (teaching program admittance test) and the program paid for the class and textbook.
Only problem is it is a smaller college and has certain amount of professors so at times, it is a challenge to get in classes certain times of the day. Also it is close to the freeway (awesome!) but kind of in the middle of no where.
