Student Reviews and Ratings for Western Nevada College
I love kids and dislikes how a sorry no good man treats a female (Tom Lee Brooks )Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Does not recognize The Constitution of United States of AmericaSource of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
The teachers are nice and so are the staff, but not very responsible. They've lost my paperwork for financial aid and I was forced to pay 1300 out of pocket.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
The experience at WNC has been generally underwhelming. I've signed up for 6 classes in total. A couple of them were ok, but I would usually dropout of the classes midway because of sheer boredom. I'm not aiming for any degree, I just wanted to take some classes for personal enrichment and to make friends with people my age. The classes usually become mostly lectures with not much time to talk to classmates. Then they would give you homework and send you back home. The campus seems vacant all the time with not much people walking around outside. Compare that to UNR where there's alot more hustle and bustle.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I've been going to this school for over a year now and overall I have enjoyed the experience. The teachers are friendly and from my experience they seem to go out of the way to help their students succeed. My only complaint is the staff can be...well, useless. I usually have trouble with questions being answered, endless issues with the financial department. Teachers are great but the staff needs to be polished over a bit. Their website "MyWnc" is also garbage. Navigation and and functionality is abhorrent and needs to be overhauled.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
