Hi, my name is Anna. I started at Nassau because I was undecided with what I wanted to do out of high school. I knew it was a practical choice because of how affordable NCC is and because of its excellent reputation. It was truly one of the best decisions I've ever made. I absolutely loved my time at Nassau. I will always cherish it as the period in my life in which I grew exponentially.

My academic advisor within my major was stellar. I graduated with a degree in Communication Arts and went to Adelphi for a very brief time to study speech pathology, but quickly realized this major wasn't the best fit for me. I went back to NCC a second time and obtained my degree in American Sign Language (ASL). The support I had at Nassau was unparalleled. The head of the Communications Department not only helped me pick my major but also set me up with a fantastic internship. I was hired there full-time after my graduation. I have been working with the Deaf community since I graduated.

I now work at a Deaf school in the city and I am in the process of obtaining my BA in English - ASL Interpreting through the University of Northern Colorado. I owe so much of my success to the guidance I received at Nassau.

I had such good memories from my first time attending that it made sense to go back to finish my degree. People also recommended Nassau's Surgical Technology program to me because it is one of the best in the area.

NCC was a smart choice for me because I wasn't really sure what my passion was. Nassau gave me a chance to figure it out while not having to carry the financial burden of switching my major should I want to make a change.
