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!!
Nassau community college is a great school to develop a strong foundation before transferring. most of the professors are solid teachers and are easily accessible outside of class, although there is not much campus life, that's primarily because everyone is relatively focused on their majors.
Nassau has taught me to be responsible , and to want to better my academics . Nassau has also provide me with excellent professors who ave tough the material well , but most important have taught me life lessons and that is unplayable . Thanks to nassau I consider myself a better person with a great future .
I really enjoyed attending Nassau Community College. I attended Nassau right after High School in 2013. I was confident that Nassau would be a great place for me to get my educational career started. I graduated from Nassau with my Associates in Communications in two years and one semester. I was really happy with all the classes that I took at Nassau, ESPECIALLY the ONLINE classes! I took advantage of the online classes in the summer also, I was able to finish up my degree a lot quicker. Although I was placed in remedial courses when I started at Nassau. These classes really did help me out a ton. I also took advantage of the website "ratemyprofessor.com". One of my professors from Nassau actually recommended this website, and it basically changed my life! *chuckle* This website helped me so much in choosing the right professors for all of my classes, I was very proud and confident with all of the teachers I chose. It made my Nassau career a lot smoother and stress free. The professors I chose were always very helpful with open arms. They were very organized and followed their syllabus throughout the semester also. Since they were following a schedule and they provided the students with that schedule, everything was so much mire organized and stress-free... I never had an issue at NCC. I never had to switch a professor, test were fair and I really met a lot of great professors as well as students. I am proud to say that I attended one of the best Community College's in New York State.
I think Nassau Community College is a great school to start at. The class sizes are not to big and they do not have any lecture halls, so you really get to know your teacher and they get to know you. The teachers are always avaliable to help you if you need it and they also try and work with you if you are unable to meet their office hours. If you are not sure what to study or where to go to school this is a great school to start at because they really guide you in figuring out what your next step in life will be. I am happy I decided to go to this school I really love it.
Don't let the fact that NCC is a Community College make you think that it is a bad school. It is very cheap compared to 4 year Universities, and as far as Community Colleges go, the curriculum is almost just as good. The faculty know their stuff too; my physics teacher is one of the inventors of the MRI! There are 2 major cafeterias on campus, along with a smaller one by the primary classroom area, and all of them are relatively good. Parking is never an issue (in any of the 3 major lots).
Nassau Community College is one of the nicer community colleges on Long Island and has everything on one campus and I just feel like it’s better organized which is why I chose to go there although Suffolk Community College Brentwood campus is significantly closer to me. Also, I feel like the academics are better and like Nassau has more to offer me. I took a break from school to focus on myself and my mental health and there was not a day that went by that I wasn’t excited for the day that I would be ready to go back to school. That day finally came and the student advisor and bursar and registrar office have been so amazing and helpful despite all the emails and I can not wait for classes to start. Go Lions!
At first, I went to Nassau just because I was forced but when I took a tour of the campus I was involved. The tour guides were so nice and helpful and the campus was huge and beautiful. It grew on me. As I started my freshman year I have met so many nice people and created friendships there. The professors can be tuff but they are always available for you when you need them.
My overall opinion on Nassau Community college is the school is satisfactory for a community school. The reason behind this is because when commuting parking lot will get vey packed so you may have to walk very far from you car to get to class. Also if you are a person who loves sports but, needs school pride not the school for you. On the bright side you will learn alot from paying a sport at NCC our coaches are amazing for girl and guy sports. In conclusion, if you have the opportunity to go to a four year school go and experience but, if you want to save and don't car about experiences than come here for life lessons in the connivence of your home.
