Scholarships: The accounting department at Sierra Nevada College has on several occasions wrongfully charged students and once approached they claim it to be an accident.

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

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The normal student housing rooms. Small yet on campus..

3 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

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

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school thrives on athletics. Skiing is a huge part.

4 College Sophomore

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 Sophomore

Majors: Some of the classes are difficult due to the teachers ability to teach.

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

2 College Senior

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.

4 College Sophomore

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

4 College Sophomore

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"

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Unless you know people who know people there is no way to party.
No clubs and all the bars are hard to get into without any ID.
When you do know people who party though there are often parties multiple times a week and at pretty consistent houses.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Small school--small selection.
Sodexo sucks but hey! salad bar!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Eh. When you go to a school as expensive as SNC you have to finagle a lot of aid but if you work hard and give enough headaches to the financial aid ladies they usually "find" more aid for you.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year was AMAZING. I have since taken some time off and come back to a different environment but it still seems to be a good school and the faculty are still amazing.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The facilities are great. Dorms have heated floors and their own bathrooms, the library is designed like a ski lodge, the dining hall is nice and clean and we have a Platinum LEED certified science building.
The school is in great shape and a super nice atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: You have to have your own computer but for the most part it is super easy to get printers installed and any tech help

3 College Sophomore

Administration: There was never a need for security until we got a lacrosse team and after a pretty bad fight there is 24/7 security.
If former residents have been trespassed from the dorms they are super strict about getting them out. For the most part if you respect the RA's they will help you out but the minute you do something to piss them off they will target you.
