Kyra Cardoso chose to come to Nassau Community College for its affordability and for
the opportunity to earn a degree in acting. She recently acted in Noel Calloway’s "Mr.
Santa," a movie about restoring the Christmas spirit.
"My experience in being a part of the film was wonderful. Everyone was so unbelievably kind and talented. You could feel the passion from everyone on set," said Kyra. "Working with such a seasoned and professional cast and crew in my role as Maddie Wiseman was the greatest learning experience. "
Kyra is scheduled to graduate from NCC this summer. "Being able to work professionally and continue my education was very important to me, and going to Nassau allowed me to do that. I practically live at the theater building when rehearsing for shows, and have become close with many other like-minded students," she said. Kyra fondly remembers when she and other acting students were nominated as a group for the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival and took a road trip to Cape Cod to participate in the workshops and compete in the regional competition. With all these experiences she would definitely recommend Nassau to other students, especially those who want to build a foundation in the theater industry.
After graduating from NCC, Kyra plans to continue to pursue her career in acting.
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.
