Will learn a lot
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.
Will enjoy being here
They have a lot of outdoor adventure programs that are free or cost very little including shopping trips to San Francisco, Snowboarding/Skiing, and summer activities like rafting and fishing trips. I also found that a lot of students call their teachers by their first name.
Bang for the buck
It is a private school and it can be pricey but there are a lot of institutional scholarships available. Also surprisingly a lot of little extras are free like parking, paper for printing, passes to the nearby fitness center and as I mentioned earlier, the outdoor adventure trips. It may not seem like a lot but those things can add up quickly at other colleges,especially if you get parking tickets and before you know it you could paying private school prices for public school.
Tips for prospective students
Check out the campus, it's gorgeous! I am not a student there so I don't really have much more than that.
Great for these types of students
People who love the mountains and enjoy a small school environment will love it here!

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!
Tips for prospective students
Communicate with your admissions counselor! They are friendly, helpful, and most have graduated from SNC. Also, should you choose to attend, get involved! The campus is small and SNC is a very tight community so it is easy to get to know everyone very quickly!
Academic Rigor
The professors challenge you to be active in your own education. They ask you to be involved and engaged in classes. However, the homework load in to too much. You will still have time for skiing, boarding, and any other outdoor activities!
Dorm Life
Dorm life is great! The housing staff works hard to make the dorms feel like a home! Each room has its own bathroom and they are quite large!
Food and Dining
The food gets old by the end of the year but as far as dinning hall food goes its better than most. There is also always a vegetarian option!
What to do for fun
There is so much to do at SNC! Between the school trips, location near San Francisco, Reno, and Sacramento, and the Lake Tahoe Basin you will never be short on things to do!
Bang for the buck
The school is pricey but almost all school trips are at little to no cost the the students above tuition! Trips like... Six Flags, White Water Rafting, and two formal dances a year!
Great for these types of students
SNC is great for students who want a small school setting with small classes. It is also the perfect school for outdoors people or people big into skiing!
Clubs and Activities
We are not sort on activities at all, as I have mentioned. We do also offer a variety of clubs and it isn't hard to get one going!
Greek Life
None.
Campus Safety
Extremely safe town. Campus has security at night.
