i have attended a few other colleges, including chico state and truckee meadows community college, but i have always found myself struggling in those environments. after i moved to tahoe and earned my associate’s degree at lake tahoe community college, i transferred to snc. they offered me the opportunity to finish my bachelor’s degree in a close-knit environment and still live in the place i love.
my experience so far has been amazing. like any school, i was nervous about meeting new people and seeing if i fit in the program, especially as a mother returning to school. to my happy surprise, though, i’ve met lots of kind people and exceptional teachers who have given me the confidence i needed to gain my degree. i also have met many inspiring writers who have encouraged me to pursue my dreams. snc has become the experience of a lifetime for me.
