Western Nevada College is an acceptable college that I am very grateful to be in. It has amazing learning opportunities and it is a school that provides support to their students. The professors are exceptional at their jobs and always available. It is an amazing school to attend and the class sizes are small so it is very personal to each student.
Western Nevada College is a relatively good community college to attend. However, the quality of instruction varies with the professors, many of which do not have teaching degrees, making it difficult to learn from them. The professors and staff do not seem to communicate well, and many professors believe that students taking online classes need to be given an exorbitant amount of work compared to students who are able to attend class in person. There are not many classes available at the Douglas campus, and finding information about academics and concerns has proven difficult with incompetent workers and a school website that is not user-friendly.
Western Nevada College is full of people that will help you in any way possible and offer support in academics and even personal issues. They have plenty flexible schedules as well. Although there are some teachers that do not help in the way that they are needed to. This affects the students ability to learn and pass the class.
Overall i feel that Western Nevada College is a good starting point in my college career. I feel that it is perfect for 2-4 year curriculum courses and sets you up for higher education down the road. Western Nevada College has a wonderful teaching staff and the course catalog is very diverse and well rounded to suit a vast majority of different degree programs. All in all this is a great starting college and I would recommend this college to anyone who wants to save money and begin their further education in Nevada.

In retrospect, it is extremely predictable that someone as naieve as a highschool student would lose all inhibition to achieve in order to gain a false sense of acceptance. It begins once you enter the coveted lifestyle of a highschool student and will end the moment you cross the threshold of commencement. If given the chance to advise an 18 year old me, I would simply state that it is better to excel in front of judgemental peers than be viewed inadequate by the admissions office of the only college you wanted to attend. I will not claim to have done poorly in the college I ended up attending, having had a 3.3 GPA and making the deans list 3 semesters in a row. But I know that if I had only seen past the facade of a teenage angst a little sooner, I would have found myself in a much more prestigious school than the one I attend now. If I could give advice to myself as a senior; I would tell myself that I am worth much more than an invite to homecoming and would make sure to remember the exact day of the PSAT's.
The best part about my school is the small class sizes. I have the oppurtunity to actually speak with my professors face to face . It really makes learning a lot easier.
The campus is not full of very many lively young full time students, so it is kind of boring. Instead there are a lot of kids going part time as well as older people that have chosen to go back to school.
I dont think there is much about is frustrating as for me going college is challenge.
Modern and nice.
I wish I had known that there is very little social scene before I came. It would have been nice to know people that were alittle more like minded.
The kind of person that should attend this school is someone looking to further their education, is goal oriented, and its a great start to finding a better college in other areas. If you are looking to transfer to a university out of state or in another city Western Nevada College is a good place to begin.
I brag about the teachers and the availability of classes. The teachers, due to the low student to teacher ratio, have the availability to give individuals the assistance they need, and are also able to answer questions during lecture. This is usually the case in a lecture hall with 100 plus students found at a university. The availability of classes is simply amazing because there is more than one campus a person can go to, as well as the option to take an on-line class.
My classmates are friendly, willing to help in my classes when needed, and I always feel comfortable around them.
Sports Program I think.
I have not attended any other college. I chose this college because it is close to my home and I also have the convinence of doing classes on line. Everyone at the college is very helpful with any questions I may have and they respond quickly. I'm not sure if a bigger colllege would have that so called customer service a smaller college may have.
In this school any person can come to attend if the person is willing to create their own future with better benifits for their family.
