Sierra Nevada College
Action is in our DNA. Everything we do is dedicated to moving lives and learning forward, to engaging students and helping them become confident, collaborative critical thinkers who are uniquely prepared to thrive in the real world. Four core themes define us: Entrepreneurial Thinking, Professional Preparedness, Liberal Arts, and Sustainability. And we bring these themes to life for every student through active learning processes that foster problem solving, teamwork, and innovation. It’s a culture of competition where students learn to think on their feet, to communicate persuasively, and become active participants in their education.
Your education is a collaborative partnership between you, your teachers, and the College as a whole. Real learning comes when you are fully engaged in your own education – not passively sitting in a lecture hall taking notes for the next exam. At SNC Tahoe, we spend an enormous amount of time thinking about how to make learning come alive for each of you, and to fully prepare you for the lifetime of opportunities and challenges that you will have after you leave here. Take classes from a talented faculty who hold prestigious advanced degrees and have distinguished careers in their field. Learn directly from professors who have been there and done that. Faculty will inspire you, push you, support you, and prepare you to succeed.
Think about it. A national forest. The shoulders of the big, bad Sierra rising up outside your door. And, oh yeah, the shores of Lake Tahoe just a couple of blocks down the road. Could college life get any better? Your days at SNC – a top outdoor adventure college – will be ones you long remember for their closeness, camaraderie, and thrills as well as an excellent academic community. And our campus, amenities, and activities are designed to make those moments happen.
