I began working for the Theatre and Dance Department as a part-time Technical Assistant in the summer of 1988. I became a full-time faculty member January of 1989. As a technical director, I'm responsible for overseeing the technical needs of our theatre productions. This includes designing and programming lighting and sound, scenery construction and providing one on one instruction to our theatre students in the discipline of technical theatre.
Honestly, it's hard to pin down my fondest memory since we have done so many memorable productions. However, I would have to say it was the Theatre and Dance Department's 50-year reunion party that we held in the Multipurpose Room of the College Center Building on Campus in 2015.
Perhaps one of our most esteemed alumni, Billy Crystal, joined faculty and students past and present in celebrating decades of friendship and experiences. To see and speak with so many of our former students and hear of their successes and even their pitfalls was an extraordinary experience.
What makes NCC special to me is what makes the theatre special to me. They are both a place for anyone to be who they want to be and discover other people who share their passion and goals.
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.

Going back to school was honestly the best choice for me. As an adult student, I felt focused and goal driven because I knew the expectations of the real world. The NCC - SUNY Empire State College Multi-Award Nursing Program prepared me for my future in so many ways.

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.
