My experience at NCC is one I wouldn’t change. I’m proud to have gone to Nassau. I always wanted to be on the radio. So, I ended up majoring in Media Communications.

NCC gave me the opportunity to grow my interpersonal, public speaking and general communication skills. Along the way I was given the opportunity to intern at WHPC (the campus radio station) and was able to live out my dream of being an on-air talent. I helped launch and served on the e-board of Sigma Chi Eta (a communications honor society for two-year colleges). I served as an Orientation Leader and often found myself spending time with fellow workers at the radio station in the basement of the H Building.

If it wasn’t for Prof. Laura O’Connell and Prof. Jill Burgreen, my NCC experience would have been vastly different. They truly have helped me along the way both during my time at NCC and even now today, five years after graduation I still keep in contact with them. After graduation, I moved to Ohio. Although my current position isn’t in Media, my experience at NCC has helped me become a better communicator, learner and friend. Even though I’m miles away, NCC will always hold a special place in my heart.

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.
