Congratulations to Olivia Biggs, another of the five Nassau Community College students who received a SUNY Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence this year. We are profiling each of our student winners to highlight their prestigious honor. Chancellor's Award recipients are honored for their outstanding achievements within many aspects of their lives such as academics, leadership, campus involvement, community service or the arts. It is the highest honor bestowed upon a student by SUNY.
"Being a recipient of the 2022 SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Student of Excellence has brought me hope for the integrity of society and even more motivation to stay persistent with my goals, as well as inspire others to achieve theirs. As Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg once said, “Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”
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.
