I have attended Nevada State College for the past year and a half. I am a returning college student who is much older than the average student there. All the students I have been in contact with thus far, shows appreciation for what I am out to accomplish. They invite me to hangout and party with them. When we are in class we work as a team and get these projects completed and turned in. I must say that Nevada State College is young College with a bright future ahead of it. I have been to several city and state colleges in my day. This one is just right for me!

Nevada State College is still growing to this day. When I started years ago there were only a few building and as the years have pasted it has grown into a beautiful looking campus. Even when it was small the class sizes were decent and the professors still make time for each and everyone of their students. Online classes are offered and extremely convenient for those of us students working full time and trying to make time for classes. The school is just outside the busier areas of the city with a beautiful view which to this day still takes my breath away!
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!
