As a senior in high school, I was accepted into a Jump Start program at Western Nevada College. The transition from being a senior in high school to a freshman in college felt so comfortable with the help of my instructors and the resources Western Nevada College provides for their students.
Western Nevada College is a great college for someone to expand their education. There are many classes where students can choose to explore their interests. The counselors at Western Nevada College are such great guiders. They do their job at a beyond and lead their students to big successes.

Nestled against the soaring Serria Nevadas and overlooking the quaint capital city of Nevada, Western Nevada College is a (literal) step above the rest when it comes to community colleges. The teachers are in general passionate, well-educated individuals, who are genuinely invested in helping their students succeed. The school staff are accessible and knowledgeable, the campus is clean, and there's plenty of parking. WNC is a great choice for anyone looking to take some affordable, educational classes.
I'm in the program Jumpstart which allowed high schoolers to take college classes. This program saves money and helps kids get used to college work all while staying with their parents. Overall I enjoy jumpstart so far, and can't wait to start my second year next year when I have grown even more through this experience.
