I enrolled at SUNY Nassau because I knew I wanted to major in life sciences and I wanted to work on some foundational skills while taking advantage of the College's affordable tuition and proximity to my home. I was also given the opportunity to enroll in the honors program, which allowed me to challenge myself even further.
I loved Chemistry in high school and after taking chemistry classes at SUNY Nassau learned more about the opportunities available for a chemist. During my last semester at the College, I was president of the chemistry club, event coordinator for the honors club, an orientation leader for incoming freshmen and a student mentor! I would say my fondest memory at SUNY Nassau was working with Dr. Agarwal, Prof. Sleckman and my peers to create a life-sized version of the very first periodic table for an American Chemical Society conference. It was fun seeing everyone's vision come to life and I received invaluable advice from professors about moving forward both academically and professionally.
I strongly encourage other students to attend SUNY Nassau and take advantage of its many opportunities for students. I built many relationships, from professors to other students, that are more difficult to form at larger universities. I also was able to work on the skills I needed to succeed in college as a STEM major.
My transfer to Stony Brook was essentially seamless because I transferred within the SUNY system. In the future I would like to obtain my medical doctorate and master's in public health and one day build clinics to serve underrepresented populations who face barriers to accessing quality, affordable healthcare.
I am a marketing major and will graduate in 2025. After a rough start at a large four-year university, I chose to attend Nassau Community College. It has a nice campus, a great community, and besides — my mom went here! My best experience so far has been my in-class presentations.

I transferred to NCC to pursue a degree in Nursing. After some sudden life-changing events I needed to be back home with my family. Nassau was the best educational opportunity for me, especially considering my chosen career path. One of my favorite experiences at the College so far has been forming a sense of community with my peers.

My major is Biology and I am in my second year at NCC. I originally came to Nassau Community College because of the smaller class sizes and proximity to my home but the terrific faculty and flexible class schedules are great as well. As a science major, I would have to say one of my favorite experiences at Nassau has been the hands-on work that we do in the labs during biology classes.
