Raynor Robinson is a Speech and Debate Team member at Nassau Community College.
As a debater, I've gained a deep understanding of arguments and how to analyze them in all aspects of life, academic, domestic, or otherwise. There's nothing like the nights after a day of competition, where, after dinner, we get together to review our ballots (judges' reviews of our performances that day), discuss them, and practice our events in front of each other. It's one of the only times we see each other's events and when we feel most like a team.
This club takes a lot of investment, and that investment will inevitably pay off if you have the will and passion because we have two of the best coaches in the entire country. If you're unsure of whether you have said passion, join us in the Fall semester; there's no hard commitment one must make unless you decide to join us in the Spring semester. Team members are expected to practice every day and we have coaching sessions weekly, but we only meet as a whole team a handful of times throughout each semester.
Students interested in joining the Speech and Debate Team should email Professor Trent Webb at Trent.Webb@ncc.edu.
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.
