CONTINUING THE TRADITION 

We are the right choice for veteran and military students for many reasons, including our history.

The campus is located on part of the original MITCHEL FIELD with military roots stemming back to the American Revolutionary War.

MITCHEL FIELD is best known as a base of activity in the 1920’s through the 1950’s. An extensive building program was undertaken after World War I when a permanent Army post, with barracks, warehouses, hangar space and administrative buildings, was established. Many of these structures are part of the campus today.

In 1962, in its third year of existence, Nassau Community College was re-located to part of Mitchel Field. The campus now spans 225 acres, comprises 47 buildings and is the top choice for one out of every four college-bound students in Nassau County. To date, the College boasts more than 120,000 graduates who are represented in most every professional field.
