I have been a professor at NCC for the past five years.  Having started my academic career at SCCC, I enjoyed the feel of a SUNY community college and was happy to return as a professor in the Criminal Justice Department.   Many of our criminal justice students are aspiring to a career in law enforcement.  As an Inspector with the Nassau County Police Department and an Attorney, I'm able to share my 25 years of police experience with them.

My fondest memory of being at the college so far is participating in the Traveling Professor Program.  I am an avid traveler having visited all 50 states, and over 40 countries on 6 continents. I enjoy sharing my adventures around the world with others.  Experiencing new places, meeting people of different cultures and learning to adapt in a country where I don’t understand the language has taught me so much about myself and the world. Whether it was during a safari in Tanzania, visiting a religious site in Israel or even sitting next to a penguin in Antarctica, some of my greatest learning experiences have occurred during travel.

SUNY Nassau has become more special to me as my former students are now becoming my colleagues.  During one of my 1st semesters, I told my students of the upcoming Nassau County Police Exam and encouraged them all to sign up.  Today, one of those students is now a Police Officer working with me in the 8th precinct. He may be the first of my students to join me, but I am sure he will not be the last.

I am a Liberal Arts major in my second year at NCC. The biggest reason why I chose Nassau Community College is that I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life after high school and saw NCC as the perfect place to explore that.

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.

For my first semester of college, I attended a large university out of state. As the semester went on, I was feeling more and more detached from the experience. After some contemplation I decided that coming back home for college would be my best choice.

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.
