What Students Are Saying

2.78 Average Rating
CSN is a well-run school. It always has all resources easily available to students and tuition is not over priced. I wish they had more sports programs but other than that it's a very good college.
Evan from North Las Vegas, NV
The College of Southern Nevada is a place for honest students who want to succeed. The teaching staff, along with the office staff, are there to assist you in any way needed. It has been a pleasant time attending this college and I would rate it a solid 9 out of 10.
