Student-Teacher Ratio of 19-1 Ranks Second in the State

WNC Recognized for Personal Attention to Students

Western Nevada College has been recognized by Online College Database for its personal attention to students.

WNC was ranked No. 2 in the state of Nevada for its reported student-teacher ratio of 19-1.

“The colleges and universities that made our list offer excellent academic programs tailored for students who love personalized attention,” Online College Database noted on its website page honoring colleges, universities and online colleges in Nevada.

Only Great Basin College in Elko had a lower student-teacher ratio among Nevada colleges at 16-1.

“With thousands of coed (students) flooding college campuses each fall, it’s important for students to find schools where they can easily converse with professors and peers, where even introductory lecture classes make individual attention a priority,” said Maggie Evans McGuinness, managing director for communications and partnerships at College Database.

To be included in the rankings, colleges must have a student body of at least 5,000 and an average class size below 20 students per professor. Great Basin College has 5,195 students enrolled, compared to 7,851 for WNC.
