Most Helpful Review for Sierra Nevada College

This school is very small and therefore very hands on. They give you a well rounded education in business, entrepreneurship, and some arts and sciences,even though your major may not necessarily involve those subjects. They like to give a very broad education so that you can leave college able to succeed in either getting a job in your field or creating one.

    Sierra Nevada College is a small private school located in the most beautiful little town of Incline Village on the most beautiful lake, Tahoe. Class sizes are small, which gives you a very personal relationship with your professors. The staff is very helpful in every aspect of the college process.

    The college is a great laid back community of teachers and students who support each other. Most classes involve active learning and participation. The campus is gorgeous and you get what you want out of the college.

    Sierra Nevada College is an extremely small school located on the shore of Lake Tahoe, in the middle of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The atmosphere is that of a very small town - everyone knows everyone. While the faculty are, overall, very well qualified and typically helpful, SNC is ultimately a school for snowboarders and other outdoorsy types.

    Sierra Nevada College is located in an AMAZING location. Great skiing, beaching, hiking, backpacking, camping, bars, festivals etc but is a very tiny college. Everyone tends to know everyone but there is a privileged attitude permeating campus. Lots of students transfer out and graduates tend to work for the school as teachers or staff members.

    SNC Is a truly unique four year private liberal arts college! With solid professors experienced in their fields, you can't beat the education. With the schools location being in Lake Tahoe you can also enjoy the best recreation of the Sierras!

    SNC is a great Liberal Arts College. It deliveres the true essance of learning, and out of the box thinking. The school is a small, mellow environment, set up in the mountains which is perfect for some and not for others. It is a small college town amoungst retieries.The Teachers are stellar though! They are always there to talk to, due to the small school population. The food is not that good, but the ski mountains make it all worth while;)
