NCC Fall Semester
For the Fall, under the guidance of State and County officials, and placing health and safety first, NCC will provide the majority of courses that can be instructed remotely or online in this format. Courses that have critical components and require face-to-face instruction, including classes with lab components that cannot easily be replicated remotely, will be instructed on-campus in a face-to-face format following appropriate health and safety guidelines and procedures to maintain the safety of the NCC community.
Nassau Community College’s new $40 million Life Sciences building is the College’s first “green” building. Green aspects of the building include natural lighting and landscaping, use of recycled copper panels on the building’s exterior and incorporated smart boards and wireless technology throughout. The 74,000 square-foot building is located adjacent to the cluster buildings on the north end of campus. Construction began in the spring of 2010, and the building was officially online Fall 2012. Housing the Nursing and Chemistry departments, the building will benefit more than 1,300 students annually.The “U-shaped" Life Sciences building features laboratories, classrooms, faculty offices, conference spaces, computer labs and group study spaces and the interior of the U has an open-air courtyard. The new Life Sciences building will set the standard for all future new construction and renovation on campus.
