4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I am able to work a full time rotating shift (4 nights, 3 off, 3 days, 1 off, 3 nights, 3 off, 4 days, 7 off) and successfully participate in discussions and other homework requirements.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: The workload is about the same as for an on campus student, you just do not have the "seat time" requirement in quite the same way. Instead of going to class and participating in the discussion or instruction, you instead log onto the campus website, and post your discussion information and reply to other students' postings.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I do not have experience with this yet.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: As an online student, I feel that I miss most of the interaction on campus students receive. However, the professors try very hard to keep in contact with the online students, so that we don't miss as much of that interaction.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: There are some classes that are very demanding, and others that are more relaxed. All are fun to learn from.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of online classes available. I am learning from and connecting to my professors from 200 miles away!

1 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Even though my math class was in seat, she forced us to pay $100 to turn in any homeworks, quizzes and tests she assigned. She did not let us use any calculators for the class and was gone for most of the semester but somehow she believed we could teach ourselves advanced algebra. Many teachers who provide online courses are unforgiving, mess up their own assignments but expect the students to adhere to their word even though the teacher messed it up. DO NOT TAKE ONLINE COURSES HERE!!!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's alright. You just have to be adamant about what you want and be sure to complete those things way before they are due.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All this school has to really offer are things that are part of the Career and Technical Education Department. Nursing being the strongest, then business, then computer technology, then automotive/welding. Anything else is basically just a side class or transfer classes to another higher up college like University of Nevada Reno.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: So far, I have only taken the technological side of business management. So far it isn't so bad and the computer classes are quite easy if you pay attention to them. :)

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: WNC is an alright community college to go to as long as you have higher aspirations than what they offer. Applying to the college is free, fast and easy. But if you have to use the FAFSA, the Financial Aid office is absolutely abysmal to work with and a lot of the time, you will get your Financial Aid money late at the beginning of the year. Some students never do get it.

The key to getting things done with anyone in this college is to continously contact them and work with them until you get what you need to do, done.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I love the wide variety of classes and times for classes offered. I know a lot of full time students who also work full time and they never seem to have a problem coming back each semester.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: In 2003 I started taking classes through WNC's construction program and upon completion in 2005 I had a job in gardnedville ranchos with Builders of Western Nevada. The opertunity and education was great and the job hiring was right away.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the small classes offered at WNC. Professors are highly knowledgeable and love to help students in their free time. The acdimic skills center also provides a great resource for students who need help. Also the library provided has great computers and vast array of books.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I personally work as a work study at the Veterans Resource Center and love my job. I get to help Veterans who are new go the school on how to apply and also get benefit information. There are also many other student worker positions avaible for students that can really help with financial needs.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The degree that I I'm pursuing at Western Nevada College is in Asociate of Science. I get to take a ton of great science classes with professors who love their jobs. These higely educational and interesting classes keep me glued to my seat and itching for more. Field trips to local areas help students use what they have learned in a class environment and apply it to real world situations.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love attending Western Nevada College. The professor's are amazing and always eager to help students. The college also offers a free tutor center for all classes and has great hours for students. The student body is great with students eager to learn and apply their selfs to a better life. While working at the college at the Veterans Resource Center I vet to meet a wide variety of Veteran students who help mentor myself and other new students.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: There is definitely a wide variety of courses to participate in and all of the professors are very outgoing and have fun with their career. The classes tend to run on the smaller size which helps with office hours and the quality of the content taught, however, I feel like many of the professors could handle much larger classes while still maintaining similar results.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Even though this is my first college experience it was everything I could have asked for, and more. The professors are extremely easy to get along with and they genuinely care about your success. They are always willing to help whenever possible with about anything that you can ask them.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Sometimes it is a little inconvenient. I have a full time job and my schedule for work gets completely rearranged every semester. It's tiring and most of the time I have no social life. If I'm not at the school for a class or to study then I am at work. I cherish the days that I have neither school nor work.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: The site my school uses for online courses is constantly having issues. I have not had one semester where something has gone wrong with that site. It's not very user friendly and tech support isn't really on the ball either.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I don't believe there is a lot the school can offer a student once they have graduated.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The classes do get to be a a tad overwhelming. I've had classes where people had to stand against the back wall. One would think having so many students in a class would make it hard to communicate with the teacher individually, but not in this case. The professors are good at checking emails and staying a few minutes after class has ended to answer any questions.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There's not a lot of internship programs are available jobs on campus based towards a specific degree. But I believe that this school can lead you to a university that can provide a student with those opportunities.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors are good at what they do. They know how to teach properly and they are friendly and easy to approach.
