I love NSC! I was a previous student at UNLV. Be forewarned, my review is based off from my previous experience at UNLV. I love that NSC has a smaller campus and parking is free! It does not take me 15 minutes to walk from where I parked to where my class is located. If anything, 5-7 minutes at most. I feel safer at this campus because there aren't many hiding places nor parking garages to worry about. Also, let's not forget that tuition is less at NSC!

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 at Nevada State College are both amazing. Class sizes aren't overflowing so the largest class size would be 30 students and allows student and professor interaction. Professors spend time on teaching you and making sure you understand the material. The campus is away from the distracting city life which allows peace and quiet. Several different age groups of students attend the campus, providing great diversity. Many of the students are continuing their education and this in my opinion motivates me in my studies and provides me greater insight for the future. The environment is positive and uplifting and overall transferring here was a great choice.
