Hi, my name is Anna. I started at Nassau because I was undecided with what I wanted to do out of high school. I knew it was a practical choice because of how affordable NCC is and because of its excellent reputation. It was truly one of the best decisions I've ever made. I absolutely loved my time at Nassau. I will always cherish it as the period in my life in which I grew exponentially.

My academic advisor within my major was stellar. I graduated with a degree in Communication Arts and went to Adelphi for a very brief time to study speech pathology, but quickly realized this major wasn't the best fit for me. I went back to NCC a second time and obtained my degree in American Sign Language (ASL). The support I had at Nassau was unparalleled. The head of the Communications Department not only helped me pick my major but also set me up with a fantastic internship. I was hired there full-time after my graduation. I have been working with the Deaf community since I graduated.

I now work at a Deaf school in the city and I am in the process of obtaining my BA in English - ASL Interpreting through the University of Northern Colorado. I owe so much of my success to the guidance I received at Nassau.

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.
