As Nevada State College (NSC) celebrates its 10-year anniversary this year, the state’s fastest growing four-year college is proud to welcome over 3,150 students to the fall semester.
To welcome new and returning students, NSC has a wide array of Welcome Week events planned to provide students with updated information about the campus, academic programs and student activities.
We’re proud to welcome the class of 2016, as well as all of our returning students, said Bart Patterson, president of Nevada State College. Starting college is an exciting time, but it can also be a little stressful. We want to make the transition to college as easy as possible for students, and so, our entire campus will be available to answer students’ questions during special events and anytime in between.
On August 20 and 21, the first days of classes for the fall semester, NSC faculty, staff and student volunteers will be on hand at all of NSC’s academic buildings, including the Dawson, Liberal Arts & Sciences, and Basic & Water II Buildings, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., to answer questions.
On August 22, NSC will host a Student Involvement Fair at the Liberal Arts & Sciences building from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students can attend this special lunch event to learn more about NSC’s15 student organizations and its numerous community service partnerships. NSC encourages students to get involved in the campus community as a way to support the broader community and as a great opportunity to meet people, build a resume and develop leadership skills.
Finally, the welcome back week will culminate on Thursday, August 23, with a luncheon at the library in the Dawson Building, where students can meet President Patterson, as well as other administrators, faculty members and student leaders.
The incoming freshman class includes a total of 315 students, many of whom are the first in their families to attend college.
