Campus resources are far more abundant than I expected. There is a tutor center in basically every building. I love the access to coffee, food, snacks and other beverages available until classes end at 10:30 pm every night except weekends. The library is very efficiently run. The staff in the library are super friendly. The environment is great. Professors are far and wide the best of the best of their fields, especially for the price of tuition! This school has really given me the best bang for my buck which is the most important thing in this economy.

Classes are small and attention needed for success is definitely available to every student. I have had some of the most impacting and motivational professors at this school. I love the environment it is comfortable, yet challenging. I truly did discover myself at this school. I have changed my major 3 times and I have finally found the perfect fit thanks to the professors and administration. I love the path I am on! I can earn my degree at my own pace. workload can be easily adjusted to meet my needs. Since tuition is so reasonable I do not need to rush. I can do better in all of my classes this way, instead of taking on more than I can handle. As important as challenging and pushing your limits are to becoming successful, it is just as important to know your breaking point. I plan on graduating with a biology degree and returning to complete a nursing program at this school.

Ill give Nassau Community college a &quot;B&quot;, because the atmosphere in the campus is ideal, a lot of energy, a lot of diversity, the cost since its a community college is very low 3,999/semester (although for a community college its high. The education is great, I had great professors at this college, I was also a student athlete wrestled for this college has a great program, student athletes at Nassau are very well treated, uniforms, weight rooms, the facilities are great for an athlete. Problems this college had are : -no housing -the parking is terrible -the variety of the lunch menu is awful Other than those minor problems its a great school!
