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.

For my first year of starting college I was a Marketing major which was a downfall. Then my second year of college, I switch my major to Graphic Designer. I honestly thought I was an artist because I had some art skills until once I started taking graphic design classes. It all went downhill from there. Finally my third year of college, I switch my major to Liberal Arts because I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do with my career. From being in the Liberal Arts program, I took so many varieties of classes like math, computers, arts, science, and so much more. But from taking all these classes and doing my own research online I found my true passion into getting my bachelor's degree in Event Entertainment Management. Being in the Liberal Arts program was the best choice that I ever made. It truly help find myself of the career path that I wanted to follow.
