Major: Creative Writing

I have attended a few other colleges, including Chico State and Truckee Meadows Community College, but I have always found myself struggling in those environments. After I moved to Tahoe and earned my associate’s degree at Lake Tahoe Community College, I transferred to SNC. They offered me the opportunity to finish my bachelor’s degree in a close-knit environment and still live in the place I love.

My experience so far has been amazing. Like any school, I was nervous about meeting new people and seeing if I fit in the program, especially as a mother returning to school. To my happy surprise, though, I’ve met lots of kind people and exceptional teachers who have given me the confidence I needed to gain my degree. I also have met many inspiring writers who have encouraged me to pursue my dreams. SNC has become the experience of a lifetime for me.
