Review Western Nevada College
So far I have been very impressed with the care and compassion of the professors here. The grounds are kept well and the classrooms are hardly ever overcrowded, and when they are overcrowded they are always for popular classes so sign up as soon as possible to guarantee your spot in the class!
While their Advising Dept. is wonderful, Financial Aid is mostly staffed with student that don't REALLY know what they're doing. Frustrating. Campus is nice, facilities nice, but online courses were mostly a HUGE disappointment. I got very little response from the professors and several seemed to think that since the course is online, they must BOMBARD you with assignments. I DO NOT recommend online here.
The class size varies between subject but I haven't been in a class where it was overwhelmingly large. The classes are usually adaptable and enable everybody to learn. There is a large variety of classes that you could take at this school and almost all can be applied to whatever degree you're trying to attain one way or another. I've had both good and bad experiences with professors at this school. I've had one professor that has been incredible and whom I've learned a lot from. I could really apply things learned in his class to real life as well as my academic future. I've also had a professor who wasn't my favorite and strayed from the syllabus and class description a lot. A lot of useless, irrelevant information was given and it was honestly a waste of time. Professors are really hit and miss but most of them are really great and want to help you learn. They make themselves available to you.
