I think that College of Southern Nevada is a wonderful college that allows plenty of students to explore and go down certain career paths. I think it is a great community college to attend if you plan to transfer in the later years as it has all of the prerequisite courses you need. The professors and staff here are incredible as well! I am very happy with my experience attending here so far.

juni - 06/01/2024

As I've been a student under CSN for the past three years, either as a student in dual enrollment or as a college student, my experience has always been a good one. The variety of students is to be expected, same as the heritage and appreciation of students' interests. The classes are accessible and there are barely any courses you would miss out on! Plus, community college has a way of pushing students to feel comfortable with furthering their education, especially for low-income households or students who value taking their time with learning.

Jailynn - 05/12/2024

CSN is an amazing college that provides an excellent academic environment for students. When I first started college, I was quite apprehensive, but the various opportunities to receive help and guidance made the transition much smoother. CSN's professors are always willing to go above and beyond to help students. I can tell they truly care about students' success and make themselves available to provide the necessary support to help clear any confusion and achieve goals. The college also offers an incredible student life experience. There are constantly events happening across all campuses, providing various opportunities for students to get involved and build connections with others.

Hero - 03/24/2024

My opinion of College of Southern Nevada is pretty neutral. I love my professors but some of their staff can use some work on how to interact with students. The atmosphere isn’t bad at all and campus is very diverse, with people of all ages and races that attend.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I suppose it would have to begin with a short story; as a highscool senior, college was not something I even considered. Coming from a family who has never gone to college nor pushed education strongly at all, I had other desires. Working fresh out of highschool taught me quickly that the world is not so kind to those who are not educated, and so I took it upon myself to head back to school. I wish I could've told my highschool self to try harder. I did not have any motivation to do well in school and indeed, felt as though school was not fun at all. However, after completing my first degree with plans to attend a higher university, I can say without a doubt - it was the most beautiful experience of my life. In essences, all I wish I could've had told myself was to try... as I find that is the most important aspect of doing work - all you have to do is try.

  3. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    Having gotten used to the words of my peers telling me that college resources and offices were there for students' immediate use, I was expecting that to be true. That is not the case. I understand that the school employees have a job to keep; however, students come first. I should not have to keep calling and leavings messages to get a simple question answered. The worst thing about me school is that I have to wait DAYS before I have help.

  14. What are the academics like at your school?

    To be honest even my least favorite class (physics) the teacher was really cool and fair to the students. Class participation is pretty good, the classes are not as large as at the university here, 30 people verses 300 people. You can interact with the teacher and have your questions answered. Students being competitive... Not really. Everyone is on their own path, and that can foster cooperation. My major is cardiac medical diagnostic sonography. This program accepts 10 students a year. Scores are based on GPA, test scores, volunteering, and shadowing. More competitive just because of limited students accepted. I have never spent time outside of class with a professor. However, most of them are very good at email communication.
