    If you love the small town, small school feel, this is the school for you. Located in a perfect little town on Lake Tahoe, which allows you to explore the beautiful outside world around you. Professors are interested in students as people not just numbers, it really helps to push you along. Small class sizes give you the attention you need to succeed!

    Get to know your teachers and communicate with them about anything you are struggling with or need help with. On top of it get to know the students who your are taking classes with and use the resources the college offers.

    Ask yourself a few key questions: 1) Do I want to live in a very small mountain town? (1-screen movie theatre, no WalMart, Target, etc., and absolutely no night life) 2) Am I okay with snowy winters? 3) Am I willing/able to co-exist with a faculty and student body that is highly liberal, overall? 4) Do I value one-on-one time with my professors more than a varied social life? If you answered yes to 3-4 of these questions, SNC may be a good option. If not, I'd recommend looking elsewhere.

    If you want to major in ski business, go for it. If not, think really hard about coming here esp for those of you interested in the humanities. Great art program however.
