Nassau Community College is a very diverse community college. The professors that actually care are great. A lot of people look down on Nassau Community College. But if you take advantage of everything they have to offer you will do great! For some classes they tell you that you need to purchase a textbook for the class. At the end of the semester you would not have even opened the book once. That is obviously a waste of money and one thing that made me upset. The head of departments required professors to tell students they need to purchase a specific textbook. And it isn't even needed for the class. There is no dorms/housing at Nassau Community College. I lived twenty minutes away, so that did not have an impact on me. Cameras are needed on the stairwells though because there have been incidents. But overall I felt safe at Nassau. I came out of high school with a really bad gpa. I was able to turn that around at Nassau. Now I'm going to the college I wanted to go to.

My expierence at Nassau community college was ok. It really depended on the professors I had. Most were amazing. Others were the opposite. The main key to Being able to have a good expierence here is making sure before you register for classes, look up the professor! You do not want to get stuck with some of the terrible ones here. Besides that I enjoyed my learning there.
Nassau Community College is an incredible stepping stone for those who would like to see better collegiate opportunities than what may be available to them out of high school. Many students find it easier to succeed academically and build their resume at Nassau than than they found it in high school. Getting involved can help students to not only build their resume, but make their experience more enjoyable. I personally got involved with the Student Government Association's Programming Board, and was given the privilege of overseeing a budget used to plan campus wide events. To inquire, head to the office of student activities (CCB Building, Room 150)
