What does
it mean to be

smart?

It’s not a dumb question.

Are you born with smarts? Are you smart because you can ace a standardized test? What about street smarts? Do they count for anything? At SUNY Nassau, we believe that being smart reflects the choices you make.

Is it smart

to pay four times as much to land the same great job?

Two people land a job in the city. Same position. Same salary. Same office.

One paid $200,000 for their education, and the other went to SUNY Nassau and spent a fraction of that. Not possible? Oh, it happens all the time with SUNY Nassau grads.

Here’s a secret about employers:

They don’t care as much as you think about where you started college, but they sure do care a lot about your skills, your knowledge base, and your confidence. SUNY Nassau prepares you for jobs in the best companies on Long Island, the city, and beyond.

Is it
smart

to pay $50,000 or more per year for college when you don’t really know what you want to do with the rest of your life?

Do you know your major? Your life’s calling? Truth is, most high school students don’t. And that’s perfectly OK. What’s maybe not OK is jumping right into a four-year commitment — and paying out the nose for tuition — if you just might not be ready.

We help you identify your path, stay on your path, and achieve your academic goals. You’ll find your major. Maybe you’ll find your passion! Starting your journey at SUNY Nassau is a pretty smart choice.

Is it
smart

to attend packed lecture halls only to be taught by graduate students?

It’s not something universities advertise, but it happens all the time: Your intro courses are taught in large lecture halls by graduate students. That’s OK for some people, but others prefer a smaller, more personal classroom experience. At SUNY Nassau, we’re unique for a college of our size, offering smaller classes with more interpersonal interaction. And our faculty hold doctorates at twice the national average for community colleges! That’s a lot of wisdom teaching a diverse, eager-to-learn, highly motivated student body.
