It wasn’t until the end of my sophomore year of high school when I realized I couldn’t live without the mountains. Sierra Nevada College is the perfect school for me. This college offers the two majors I desire, when most schools don’t offer anything similar. The classes are small, the teachers are great, and the opportunities in Tahoe are endless.
I decided to attend Sierra Nevada so I could continue to live in the place I love. I saw could learn while maintaining my active lifestyle, and while in the classroom my teachers could relate the subject matter to the area we live in while making learning experiences hands-on, fun, and interesting.
I decided to move to Tahoe because I could not think of a more beautiful place to go to school, and because of the snow, of course. I am studying Sustainability because our society needs to find better ways to sustain itself than by creating nuclear waste dumps and sanctioning away oil from other countries.
