SNC is extremely small and everyone knows everyone. Academics are hit or miss. I have taken classes here where the professors don't seem to know the material themselves and I've taken great classes here with professors who have legitimate real world experience. Location is great, social life is extremely lackluster. Most kids seem very unmotivated/don't care about their education. If all you really want to do is ski 100+ days a year this school is for you.
Review Sierra Nevada College
If you are into the small town vibe and knowing everyone on campus then SNC is for you. It is basically a High School with better parties. The Ski and Board Teams are big on campus and people who come not knowing how to ski/board always learn from someone on campus. There is also a club for this.

Events on campus are rad because student government funds many of them! Casino night is the best and the prizes are always great. Paddle boards, camping gear, gift certificates, season ski passes, ext.

Classes are pretty easy. Your GPA will stay solid if you show up to class.

Night life is fun because everyone from campus goes, but it can get old going to the same 3 bars in town week after week. House parties are big, but tend to get shut down in this small town.

IF YOU SKI THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU! no school on a powder day!
the campus is beautiful and well-kept. Dorm life is good, their are a multitude of events for students to take part in. The cafeteria is the only part of SNC that is a real issue and causing more stress for students because when the food is so unappealing and monotone that they can't eat it the students must go shopping and spend money on an already tight budget, even though cafeteria food has already been charged to our student account and paid for by the beginning of the semester.
