Testimonials from NCC Honor Students
Nassau Community College was an experience that I will always be thankful for.
What made Nassau so special for me was that I was in the Honors Program.
The Honors Program provides students with an academic adviser. Whether it is advice on which classes to take or help with scheduling issues, having an adviser that knows you personally is only available to those in the honors program. The program also gets priority while completing registration, allowing most participants to make a schedule that fits into their life.
The Honors Program also offers specific courses exclusively for students in the program.
The class discussions were much more advanced in these sections and the level of material taught was more engaging than standard classes.
Finally, the smaller class sizes were very important to me. In addition to facilitating 1-on-1 relationships with teachers, the smaller class sizes allowed me to ask more questions and made for a more personal learning experience.
The Honors Program is the crown jewel of Nassau Community College, and I highly recommend it for high achieving students.
"I’m incredibly glad I was invited to join the Honors Program after my first semester at NCC. Although the work is challenging, the classes are stimulating and lead to many potential opportunities. I have thoroughly enjoyed the courses I’ve taken because of the detailed discussions and demanding dedication required that made me feel immersed in the subject and proud of all I’ve learned. In my last semester at NCC, I truly appreciate the mature and active classroom environment that the Honors Program has offered."
"I chose the Honors Program at NCC because I wanted a challenge, but what I got was so much more. All of the professors were passionate about their subject and it showed in their lessons. This type of enthusiasm brushed off on me and helped me decide what I wanted to do with my life. I am currently a Junior at Farmingdale State College working as a Research Assistant and Teacher's Assistant as well as developing my own independent research. The Honors Program is truly remarkable for its ability to inspire, enrich and shape young minds."
