I graduated from high school without choosing a career path. I knew that coming to SUNY Nassau would allow me to explore my options while getting to know myself and my interests more. Taking General Chemistry did two things for me: It challenged me and it was fun to learn about. The thought analyses that went in to asking and answering questions made the course so interesting.
While studying did take up a lot of my time at the College, I became involved at different times in the Biology club, the student government (SGA), and the SGA Programming Board. I was also a New Student Orientation Leader. One of my fondest memories as a student was getting to meet and speak with Ndaba Mandela, the grandson of Nobel Peace Prize recipient and former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela. The semester before he came, I did a report on his late grandfather in a Public Speaking class. For me to meet Ndaba and listen to him speak was surreal. I graduated from Stony Brook with a B.S. in Biochemistry.
My career goal is to work in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. As a T.A. at SUNY Nassau, my main work is in the lab, but I also tutor students in the learning center. I definitely recommend the College -- not just as an alum, but also because I've seen firsthand how it has changed the lives of those who come through here.
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.
