Am learning a lot
Most Professors have a masters degree and most importantly experience in their field. For example, I took a personal finance course over the summer and my professor was a financial advisor or planner. Either way, she had first hand knowledge of the topics she was talking about.
Am enjoying being here
The extra-curricular activities make this school worthwile. You obviously get to meet new people and make new friends for a lifetime. joining clubs is a great oppurtunity to network. Plus it helps get your mind off struggles when you try different activities. There's a plethora of things to do. They even have time allotted for this called club hour. Its a period where you can go to the student union and play pool, grab a bite, or study in the library.
Bang for the buck
Be sure to do your Fafsa in a timely fashion because financial aid has a history of not giving out enough money to help with cost. Remember, only if you get your fafsa in on time will you experience less stress on finances. But don't get me wrong, this school is a good buy.
Tips for prospective students
Get your Fafsa in on time or early.
Great for these types of students
If you are an athlete, the athletic program is one of the top programs on the Island. Just look up its history.

Am learning a lot
I am a fashion design major, and the program at Nassau is amazing. I have learned a lot, and the professors go at a good pace- not so fast that you can't keep up, but they keep the classes moving quickly so you are always moving on to the next project.
Am enjoying being here
Nassau is a great school, especially if you live close by. It's great to get the experience of going to a more diverse school that has so many different students, as well as majors. The classes are great- just make sure you keep up and do your homework.
Bang for the buck
Price-wise, Nassau is very affordable, and you get a lot for your money. The professors that I have had all know what they are doing and have experience working in the field they are now teaching about. My only complaint is parking- get there early to get a spot, and you'll be fine.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you choose a good schedule- earlier classes are better because it's easier to park. Always try to be early for class- if you aren't, you'll be looking for a parking space for 45 minutes and miss your class.

Anyone! It's such a diverse school- it's easy to adjust once you're there.

Nassau Community College deserves to be a 4-year institution. I love going to this college already. I'm excited to continue onto my next semester!
Tips for prospective students
Get to the campus early if you drive for a good parking spot! Also, I suggest that you watch out for the smokers outside of the buildings by the entrances to avoid secondhand smoking.
Academic Rigor
The assignments given by the professors I have so far have been fair and give you a chance to open your mind in some ways as well as practice or learn skills you may not have used or learned much about in high school.
Dorm Life
There are no dorms.
Food and Dining
There are three locations where you can get food. I particularly love the food court in building CCB because of the variety of places to buy food from, such as Red Mango and Pasta Pasta. The other two locations, Treat Street and Treat Street Too, also have varieties of foods that you can buy for both breakfast and lunch.
What to do for fun
I haven't had much experience with extracurricular activities yet, but there are many clubs that you could find interesting. No matter who you are, there's definitely at least one club that would suit you.
Great for these types of students
I'm not a music major, but do miss playing my instrument. I attended a concert held by the music department and enjoyed it greatly. I also learned that you could join the concert band even if you're not in the class and join them to play pieces of music. So whoever has an interest in music, even as a hobby, should look into the music department to see if there's anything you could join.
