I've been at NCC for close to fifty years, first as a student, then as a coach and professor. Currently, I teach in the Criminal Justice Department, where I'm the Coordinator of the Fire Science and Emergency Management Program. Nassau Community College opened many doors for me, both as a student and as an adult.
I have countless fond memories of the College over the years. The first one would be being a member of the wrestling team as a student and then coming back as the wrestling coach. I'll never forget the great athletes and students I have known. I'm proud I was inducted into the Nassau Community College Hall of Fame and that I created the College's Fire Science and Emergency Management Program.
As a student, I was fortunate to be around coaches in several sports who mentored me. I'm also so grateful that Prof. Hunt, my history professor, encouraged me to finish my bachelor's degree, and for the entire staff of the College's Writing Center at the time. For me to accomplish all of this on the grounds of NCC -- where I began my college education -- has been amazing!
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.
