SUNY Nassau Community College Reviews

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!

Nassau was my college choice because it saved me money for the first two years. I was able to get the same education everyone else was getting at a 4-year school. Nassau is a small college and well versed in getting students transferred out pretty well. The college has major connections to local colleges in the are like Stony Brook, Hosfra, LIU Post, Farmingdale, and etc. There are no dorms but there is a rumour stated there will be dorms in the near future. Nassau commuter school, with students coming from NYC boroughs like Queens and Brooklyn and even the Bronx! Whenever speaking to any department on campus they're very polite and welcoming to any questions. I loved that I started at Nassau first before a 4 year school!
Since Nassau Community College is known for being a commuter school, there is really no social life. It's a pretty big campus which is beneficial because you do not have to be in just one building throughout the day! NCC is also very interesting when you have nothing to do. You just walk around and explore. I will admit that studying at NCC is not an easy; you are offered hard-core teachers! Most of them are known for bring the best! They are not only hard-core but, prepare you for the world!
