I began working for the Theatre and Dance Department as a part-time Technical Assistant in the summer of 1988. I became a full-time faculty member January of 1989. As a technical director, I'm responsible for overseeing the technical needs of our theatre productions. This includes designing and programming lighting and sound, scenery construction and providing one on one instruction to our theatre students in the discipline of technical theatre.
Honestly, it's hard to pin down my fondest memory since we have done so many memorable productions. However, I would have to say it was the Theatre and Dance Department's 50-year reunion party that we held in the Multipurpose Room of the College Center Building on Campus in 2015.
Perhaps one of our most esteemed alumni, Billy Crystal, joined faculty and students past and present in celebrating decades of friendship and experiences. To see and speak with so many of our former students and hear of their successes and even their pitfalls was an extraordinary experience.
What makes NCC special to me is what makes the theatre special to me. They are both a place for anyone to be who they want to be and discover other people who share their passion and goals.
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.
