sierra college tahoe-truckee campus has small classes so there is more attention for students.
it's the temple of the success.
N'guessan from Truckee, CA
sierra is a great school to start out with. it saves so much money and the classes are just as good, if not better than a csu. sierra prepared very well for going away to college, and living in the real world.
