"Following my high school graduation, I was kind of at a crossroads. I had decent grades, I'd been accepted to a few schools, but I honestly lacked direction. I enrolled at NCC to begin my college education and "figure it all out." I happened to see a flyer that said, "Come audition to be a part of WHPC." On a whim, I did. A week later, Jim Green had me cracking the mic at 3:00am talking up Perry Como records. I started DJ'ing "The Soft Sounds of WHPC." I was hooked. I worked my way up to joining the lineup of the Saturday 'X-treme Rock' heavy metal block of programming and eventually became the metal music director of the station.
I've more or less been in the broadcasting/entertainment business for over two decades. WHPC provided an academic experience that was fun! As a student volunteer at the station, I discovered the strength of my own resiliency and the value of discipline. WHPC truly is one of the best college radio stations.”
My decision to attend NCC after high school stemmed from a variety of reasons. I had a lack of direction on what career to pursue, and I certainly noted the astronomical tuition costs at the schools that offered me admission. When doing my research, I noticed NCC's commitment towards its students.

I am a first-generation college student and have been paying my way through college. I had previously attended NCC because of its affordability and location. 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.
