Meet Our #ScorpionFamily

S.Growe-picture

“I have been teaching at NSC for over 13 years and love being a part of the Scorpion culture. We have a wonderful group of faculty who share ideas in teaching so we all can make our classes better. Our small classes allow the freedom for students to learn a little bit of who they are and actually get to know faculty who might end up becoming a life long mentor to them.”

“I first started working for Nevada State College as a student worker in the Course Assistant Program. The experience was amazing because it allowed me to continue practicing subject content, taught me how to be a better student, and was on-campus for work, so very convenient. I loved working for the college so much, that I applied for a full time, classified position.”
