I'm in my final year at NCC, majoring in Business Administration. Nassau Community College appealed to me because of its affordability. My two siblings are also college students, and it is difficult for my family to help pay for their tuition each year. Because of family problems that occurred during my senior year of high school I decided to stay close to home.
My time at Nassau Community College has been a blessing. I was really quiet and kept to myself my first year here. All that changed in my second year when I became a senator for the Student Government Association. I joined the SGA to become more active in student life and to enable more students to participate in clubs and activities at the College. Being on campus with my sister is my favorite memory at NCC. We had some of our classes together, and then we'd go to the library to study afterward.
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.
