This article showed up in section B of the Review-Journal, on Thursday the 29th.
Full text is behind the cut, but I'll post the salient points. This article is relevant to both NSC students and CCSN students.http://www.reviewjournal.com/lvrj_home/2005/Dec-29-Thu-2005/news/5108638.html( state college moving on upCollapse )The Good News of this article:
Over the next few years, the schools will work to allow students at Western Nevada Community College campus, Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno and the Community College of Southern Nevada to complete their two-year degrees and then take Nevada State classes, either across the hall or at a nearby campus, as part of a bachelor's degree program.
The "Nevada State system" would "give us classes in North Las Vegas at the Cheyenne campus, at the Redfield campus, which is right outside Reno, and classes out at the Western Nevada Community College," Rogers said.
CCSN President Richard Carpenter said he hopes to start offering Nevada State upper division courses in the coming year at CCSN's Charleston and Cheyenne campuses.
Full bachelor's degree programs on campus will take longer to implement, he said.
This is great news for students of both colleges here in Las Vegas. NSC currently offers only a select number of degree programs and being able to go to CCSN to complete, say, an anthropology degree in the future will be awesome. Here's hoping they pound out the details quickly! I'll be graduating from NSC in the Spring, but I've been harassing one of the anthro professors there for more classes so I can complete another bachelor's. It's great that the two schools are working together for the benefit of the students.
