Tucked away among the rolling foothills of Henderson, Nevada stands Nevada State College, one of the fastest-growing institutions of its kind in the nation; it experienced approximately a 2000% jump in enrollment from 2002 to 2012 alone, and now serves almost 3,400 students per year. Its 26 bachelor’s degree programs include elementary education, visual media, speech pathology and business administration. About NSC, graduate Charleston Hartfield gushes, “The flexibility allowed me to be an active parent, a loyal employee, and an active member within the community. The professors… were encouraging, professional and passionate.” Campus resources include an academic advisement center, resource center for students with disabilities, psychiatric counseling, tutoring and more. As recently as February 2016, it offered “on-the-spot” scholarships during an open house for prospective students. And NSC has a club or organization for all of a wide variety of interests, from flag football and a visual media club to archery and the “Scorpion’s Tale” student newspaper. So come on by, and see if you can start your own tale of personal growth!
