Welcome to Life-Changing Learning
There’s nothing passive or conventional about life at SNU. Our status as Nevada’s only accredited, private, four-year institution, and our location high in the Sierra, on the shores of legendary Lake Tahoe, all but guarantee that.
Action is in our DNA. Everything we do is dedicated to moving lives and learning forward, to engaging students and helping them become confident, collaborative critical thinkers who are uniquely prepared to thrive in the real world. Four core themes define us: Entrepreneurial Thinking, Professional Preparedness, Liberal Arts, and Sustainability. And we bring these themes to life for every student through active learning processes that foster problem solving, teamwork, and innovation. It’s a culture of competition where students learn to think on their feet, to communicate persuasively, and become active participants in their education.
