SUNY Nassau Community College Reviews
The Honors program at Nassau Community College is fantastic. They have great professors, small classes, and interesting course options. It's easy to find courses that fill requirements and interest you as well. Scheduling is easy as well. It's not hard to find classes that fit your schedule. The campus is nice and the faculty are all extremely helpful and friendly. Finding parking is easy. The campus is big, but not too big. A lot of great support services. Joining a few of the many clubs really helps you stay involved and gives a sense of community which can be hard to find at a commuter school. NCC has a lot of students! The campus is in Garden City, so you're close by many things including the mall. They're updating a lot of the campus too! Two years here will fly by. Nassau is what you make of it.
When I first started college, I was fresh out of high school and really struggled with school. My parents advising me to go to a community college first was the best advice I could have ever got. I was frustrated not being able to go away with my friends and not getting the "college" experience. Little did I know that i would become to LOVE Nassau Community College. The friends I have made here and the teachers I have met have completely changed school for me. I'll Be graduating for one of their programs this May 2020 and I couldn't be happier with the experiences I have had here!
I am currently a student at Nassau Community College, and have attended three sessions, fall, spring, and summer. Since beginning at Nassau, I've noticed that the professors are all unique, and their teaching styles can vary vastly from one another. I enjoy this, it doesn't allow me to get bored like in high school. However, a downfall of Nassau is that there is always some sort of construction going on. Currently, its on one of the parking lots. Now, if you go to Nassau, take early classes because one the late morning/early afternoon comes, finding parking can be tricky. Also, Nassau is a commuter school, so if you're looking for a party school, I think you're in the wrong place. Otherwise there are clubs for just about anything you could be interested in, tons of honor societies, and of course, sports!
