More Than a Place to Hang Your Hat
Sierra Nevada College knows there is more to residential living than having a place to eat, sleep, and study. Student Housing is a place for students to develop friendships, participate in activities, and become an active member of the community. The Residential Life team seeks to nurture and develop these skills for the benefit of housing residents and the entire Sierra Nevada College Community.
