Natalie Asitimbay, NCC Student and President of the Student Government Association (SGA)
I am a sophomore at Nassau Community College majoring in Liberal Arts. I also serve as the President of Nassau’s Student Government Association. Like so many college students, student debt has played a significant role in my higher education experience. During my senior year of high school, the biggest despair befell me when my family broke apart due to financial difficulties.
Nassau Community College offered me a pathway to a quality education while being close to home. It afforded me the chance to help my mother adjust to being a single parent.
Nassau made the best academic and financial sense. In addition to challenging classes, attending Nassau enabled me to join clubs, including student government. Through my service in student government, I have been able to connect with students who faced the same distress of a broken home or the challenges of being a first-generation college student. The College's accessibility has given first-generation students like myself the ability to pursue an affordable, high-quality education.
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.
