I am a freshman at Western Nevada College partaking in their “Jumpstart” program. Basically, through this institution, I am able to take duel credit high school/college classes as a junior. I am enrolled in 15 credit semesters and am a full time student. WNC has made attending college at an early age extremely easy! The staff and instructors are so helpful and honest and are always there for you. I feel welcome and accepted. I am receiving and amazing education for a wonderful price. I absolutely love WNC.

I just recently finished my first semester of college (which was small due to the fact that I had dual enrollment in college and high school) with WNC, and I cannot begin to express the great experience I have in being here! The academics are a blast, and the professors care about the well-being of the students. For anyone just getting started with the rigors of college, Western Nevada College is the place to start!
They have an outstanding people-orientated culture. Help is everywhere you need it! Being a Freshman in college I was nervous to start, but WNC made it a very welcoming experience. I knew where to find my classes and how to make my way around campus. The professors are really good at what they do, and classes are small so you get more one on one time with the professor.
