4 College Junior

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is a fantastic place for a student looking for a very specific education. The professors are exemplary and the classes are great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If you are into the small town vibe and knowing everyone on campus then SNC is for you. It is basically a High School with better parties. The Ski and Board Teams are big on campus and people who come not knowing how to ski/board always learn from someone on campus. There is also a club for this.

Events on campus are rad because student government funds many of them! Casino night is the best and the prizes are always great. Paddle boards, camping gear, gift certificates, season ski passes, ext.

Classes are pretty easy. Your GPA will stay solid if you show up to class.

Night life is fun because everyone from campus goes, but it can get old going to the same 3 bars in town week after week. House parties are big, but tend to get shut down in this small town.

IF YOU SKI THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU! no school on a powder day!

Overall Experience: Housing can be a joke. Ski team is definitely a joke and the snow board team is pretty cool.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The small environment and class sizes make it easy to learn on your own terms. The Student Government Association does a great job of hosting events that are fun and a good way to meet people. Finally, the college is within 2 hours or less of a dozen ski areas, which is so great. Also, Tahoe. No more needs to be said.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great student to teacher ratio. The teachers and support staff were very hands on and invested in the students. There were lots of opportunities for the Freshmen to interact and pick the brains of the upper classes. The Freshmen dorm was a wonderful living environment.

Campus Housing: The housing requirements are a sham. This school will con you into believing anything you want and then turn around and stab you in the back

Off-Campus Dining: Only a few sports bars and a few restaurants. The community is small. If you want something different you have to travel 20 to 40 minutes away.

Party Scene: House parties are big. Our community is well known for the party scene.

Local Area: It's a small tourist ski town. Not much to do if you're not into outdoor adventures. The lake is the most beautiful aspect.

3 College Senior

Administration: The campus is very strict on parking, there isn't enough spots for all students and faculty. Lots of tickets and boots are given to cars everyday.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is barely any campus crime, personal safety isn't an issue, and security measures aren't necessary.

4 College Senior

Local Area: If you enjoy the outdoors, this is a great place to be. Much of the community engages in running, hiking, rafting, biking, and other winter activities like skiing and snowboarding. Everyone in this town is pretty active, and especially friendly. This town is very safe, limited criminal activity. Shopping is limited but there are 2 grocery stores, and multiple restaurants looking to fit your every food craving.

Administration: Seems to be typical college strictness

Transportation: Besides TART, which is not always the best option. There really is no other option for public transportation.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Nature has to be your thing to live in Incline but Tahoe is amazing!
Most of the locals here are rich and have more than one home so they don't really have an opinion on the college students. There isn't a whole lot going on in Incline but Reno and South Lake are right down the road and have a lot going on.

Academics: Small classes-easy office hours-email responses and NO TA's, only professors.

Academics: This is a school for certain majors, people who complain should go to a bigger school with more options. We like to joke and call SNC "a designer education"
