What Students Are Saying

2.71 Average Rating
I like Western Nevada College, for reasons that there is a great teacher to student ratio, it is a low cost school, and it prepares me for my pursuit in higher education. I like that I am able to get an education there and that I am helped on how to do so. There is much opportunity for growth among traditional and non-traditional students.
