It's a community college, so I knew I wasn't expecting anything great. The classes are good, a lot of the professors teach at other large colleges in the area so you're getting a great education for the price. As for the people, I don't think I should have to worry about getting cat called while walking to class, definitely one of the biggest turn offs about the school is not usually feeling safe. I have a night class and make sure to be on the phone when walking to my car.
Nassau Community College is a good school for those who are unsure of what they want to do in terms of a career and or if they have not done so well in high school. It is a good school to redeem yourself to achieve something in life. However, if you want to have a social college experience then Nassau is not for you because many community colleges like Nassau is a commuter school. People tend to go home and work after classes. I would highly recommend you attend a college that is a 4 year school whereas you will meet many people who will actively engage with you outside of the classroom and many of them are dorming anyway so there's plenty of social things you could get involved in.
I think it can often be hard to formulate your own opinion of the school since it has the unofficial reputation of being the place students who did not do well in high school go. I've heard it referred to as "the thirteenth grade" which ultimately means that some think it is comparable to being two more years of high school. If you are an actual student there, you will know that that is completely false. If you see the good that it does such as providing a cheaper option for an education that matches many four year schools and being a great start for those who wish to transfer to said four year school, then it can be perfect school choice. As great as it is, I will say that I don't always feel extremely motivated, especially beyond the classroom. Some professors, not all, don't have high expectations for their students. It's hard to fall into the trap of "Why should I try to do amazing when I can get by with the bare minimum". That can be combated though by really putting in the effort to make yourself shine. Professors do notice the students who stand out. I do also think to really feel enriched, you would have to get involved in extracurriculars because that is where the pride in the school lies. Overall, I would say that Nassau Community College is a strong college. It's a great building block to help one build a well rounded education.
Overall Nassau community college was the best option for me to start out with. I met so many different wonderful people including my professors. The professors that I have are so warm hearted and they take the time out to hear me out and help me step by step in succeeding. Honestly, they are the reasons why I have motivation to keep going. I can be myself. Nassau community college is the best route to go to start off your journey!!
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Nassau Community College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
if I could go back in time I would tell myself that college is a learning process and the teachers do want you too do well. The teachers have a good attitude about the learning process as well. Its an affordable school and the Deen is very nice. He said he help with anything and if you had a question to go see him with out a problem, hes their to help just like the teachers. You can study what you want as well and by that you will succed. You can take other courses with your major as well.
Very hard worker, who wants to make it in life.
The worse thing about my school is, that many people think that people that go to Nassau are either they fail or not that smart. Another thing about my school is that sometimes the people that work there do not help you as much as they say and the computer system that they used on campus is not very proficient. In the end, all it matters is that you do well and get good grades so you can transfer out and go to a better school
The kind of person who should attend to Nassau Community College is someone who is willing to start from zero, work hard and don?t think that they are less because they are attending to a community college. Nassau is a great place to star and it has a good reputation community college wise. Moreover, going to this school would make it much easier to go to any college or university.
My classmates are wonderful and they respect my needs.
Nasaau Community College is best known for their academics and football program. At Nassau Community College you can strive to enhance your academic studies. At Nassau Comminity College they offer a variety of majors for you to select from. The professors at Nassau are very understanding and will work with you if you are having trouble with with work load. There are centers that will help you with math and english.
The football program at Nassau Community College is very good. The football team went 8-2 last season and are still stiving to better.
The best thing about my school is that it offers disability service for students like me, who have a hearing impairment and the tuition fee is cheaper. Also, it is closer to my home and my professors are wonderful and helpful to me.
I tell my friends that there's a lot of really great professors, the classes are easy if you take school seriously and intend to learn. I've learned a lot since going to NCC, and I would easily recommend the experience to anyone.
Though a community college was not my first choice I was amazed at the opportunities Nassau Community College had to offer. I have trained with professors who currently own restaurants and professors who are certified international wine connoisseurs My wines & Spirits class went to Tuscany last fall on a wine tour and last Fall the department went to South Africa to examine developing food business models. Culinary classes are tought in a full service commercial food kitchen and hospitality in the grand ballroom. Not even private schools offered some of the experiences I've had at Nassau.
The type of person whohould attend this school is someone who wants to learn.
The most frustrating thing about my school is that some of the professors, not all of them, dont really 'listen' to the students. These specific professors dont take into consideration how the students feel or how hard they may find the class to be. When asked for help, some professors can get snappy, defensive or reply with answers around the questions without answering the questions provided.
The academics are absolutely good. If I had to rate it from 1 to 10 I would say 10
I'm new in this school and not really familiar with the activities they have but there's an activity called Latin club and is great because everyone talks about it
The most common ones are the frat kids and it is an accurate steriotype
Before coming to Nassau Community College I wish I would have known about how great student life was. Before coming to Nassau Community College I often heard my peers say that Nassau Community College was like the 13th grade it. I didn't expect to get a real college experience there. Since coming to Nassau I discovered that apart from living on campus, Nassau has so many activities to offer students. Nassau Community College affords students the chance to travel for free with the clubs on campus, they throw social functions, and they offer many discounted trips for all students!!!!!
