Nassau Community College is a 2 year school located on Long Island in New York State. It is a terrific school. During my time at Nassau I have found the professors to be easily accessible and willing to take the time to listen and give advice. I have met lots of people from all walks of life. It is centrally located on Long Island and is accessible by public transportation and is near shopping malls, museums, sporting arenas, etc. My experience with Nassau has been nothing but positive.
Review SUNY Nassau Community College
If you're looking to obtain a basic degree and transfer to another school, this is an absolute great option. I'm going to obtain an associates RN, and I'll be able to transfer that to a bachelors program elsewhere. Most likely wherever I choose!
Nassau is a school in which it is very easy to lose your way if you are not focused on what you want to get out of the education. They have a lot of opportunities and resources that help students to find their way, however, if you do not make use of these resources, life will get difficult for you further down the line.

The sports teams are very dedicated and are high performers however I find that school spirit is not very high. There are many courses and they have wonderful up to date facilities. Teacher's offices hours are frequent and help is easy to get in subjects. They have a lot of events to keep students entertained and active on campus and they make provisions for evening students to get involved in campus life by having specific events and class times for them.

Overall it's a good school, it just requires a lot of time management but that's true of all colleges.
