Ask the professors questions, they love to answer any question one may have. Take notes and study hard.

I can appreciate the diversity of this school. The college is not big, therefore students will gain a more personalized experience with instructors. Nevada State is one of the more affordable schools in the Las Vegas area.
Tips for prospective students
Be prepared to work, you will get out of the experience what you put into it. Also I would take advantage of the hybrid courses if you can dedicate study time at home. Regardless of if you take online courses, hybrid courses or in class courses you must set aside time for studying, stick to it and make it a routine.
Academic Rigor
So far, I have done well. I am currently working and attending school. I was able to obtain a 3.7 GPA this past semester, but it did not come easy. Just like with any school, you must dedicate a certain amount of hours per week for studying.
Dorm Life
This school does not have dorms. The cost of living in this area is reasonable.
Food and Dining
Food and snack counters are located throughout. Pretty good food, a little pricey.
What to do for fun
This school is located in Henderson, only a few minutes from Las Vegas and its world famous Strip. Regardless of your interests, you will never become bored with the area. Just don't let yourself become distracted by all the people, lights and action.
Bang for the buck
I did a side by side comparison with other schools in the area. The cost of tuition at Nevada State is by far the least expensive.
Campus Safety
I have never felt unsafe on campus. There is always security patrolling, even after dark.

Nevada State College is a college that is very diverse. There is a good majority of non-traditional students, mixed with young and old students. Faculty and staff are helpful and can always find an answer to your questions.
Tips for prospective students
Get involved! Your college experience is what YOU make of it, so join one of the clubs that are offered- anything from Chess Club to Latino Scorpions Club.
Academic Rigor
I have consistently felt challenged throughout my coursework with case studies, partner and group assignments as well as individual research.
Dorm Life
Currently, Nevada State does not offer dorms, but we are looking into it for the near future!
Food and Dining
While we only have one cafe on campus (and that's where the three stars came from,) there are plenty of places to go just outside of one of campuses which is in the heart of downtown.
What to do for fun
Besides joining student organizations? You can grab a bite to eat by just walking ten minutes, go to the car show or art exhibit or farmer's market (it changes every week!)
Bang for the buck
I definitely think that this college is affordable and the cost does not affect the quality of education. In fact, I think that I receive a higher quality of education by being in smaller classes as opposed to a class of 120 in a bigger university. Faculty and staff work one-on-one with you and often times, even arrange times outside of their normal office hours or after class to explain a concept or give advice.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
We have a mountain right behind one of our campuses and we have dubbed it Mt. Scorpion and take hikes as big groups up the mountain various time throughout the year.
Great for these types of students
Every kind of student! Young, old, returning after a break, with children or without, married or single, continuing education after already obtaining your Bachelor's, etc.
Clubs and Activities
This past year, the student government approved 20+ clubs to be recognized. There is something for everyone Running club, Chess club, Kappa Delta Pi (academic organization for Education majors,) Latino Scorpions Club, Black Student Organization, Blue Marble and the list goes on! If you want to create a club, the process is easy and if any questions arise, a student government member or their adviser is more than happy to walk you through the process.
Campus Safety
Our school is small and it is like a family environment, so much so that we even know our security guards by first name and feel safe. There haven't been any major problems that I have known of, but any minor problems (a disruptive person coming on to campus, for example) were taken care of swiftly and professionally that most people wouldn't even know that there was an issue to begin with.
