Proud To Be A Wildcat

Posted: January 8, 2019

There are many reasons to be proud of your education at Western Nevada College.

WNC separates itself from other colleges in the state by not only making going to college a reality but also helping students reach their potential and providing a vision for their futures during their time at WNC.

Over time this has become the Wildcat Way:

WELCOMING: At WNC, we are small enough to know each other’s names and to know the names of our students. We welcome all students with open arms and invite them to discover their individual potential at Western.

INNOVATIVE: We are nimble enough to adapt and change to meet the needs of our students and our region. We make big things happen through creative ideas, strategic planning and collaboration.

LEARNING: We care about learning that lasts a lifetime. Whether you’re a student attending WNC for the first time or an individual coming back to college to retool for the changing Nevada, Western is the place to help you achieve your goals.

DIVERSE: We embrace diversity. We foster an environment where students from all cultures, orientations and backgrounds can thrive. We promote active student engagement through the Associated Students of Western Nevada, the Latino Cohort, Veterans Resource Center, Disability Support Services and other campus groups.

COMMUNITY: WNC is a fabric of the community we serve. We are committed to making college possible for those in western Nevada. With three campuses in five counties, and multiple online degrees and programs, we offer individuals the opportunity to learn while maintaining commitments to work and family.

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE: Our faculty and staff are among the best. They are highly qualified and deeply committed to student success and achievement.

TRIED AND TRUE: For nearly 50 years, WNC has offered affordable and quality education in Nevada. Each year more than 500 students graduate from Western ready to enter the workforce or prepared to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

Yes, that spells Wildcat!

When you see the Wildcat, may it bring you pride for your school and your education, and may it remind you of the reasons WNC is special.
