There is also the multi-campus and National Junior College Baseball Champion College of Southern Nevada and the Nevada State College and several smaller schools like Regis University and the University of Phoenix. The specialty schools here are quite popular such as the Art Institute with programs in several forms of art and culinary sciences and the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Sciences!
