The Philosophy Club at NCC is based primarily on one concept: thinking about the way we think. We meet on Tuesdays from am -pm in Nassau Hall, Rm. 218. During our meetings we have an open discussion on any philosophical topic that people bring with them, or any topic that comes to mind. We try, however, to stay with the chosen topic and feed off of each other’s ideas to gain a better understanding of the specific topic at hand. There are no fees to be in this club and no requirements. You do not have to be a Philosophy major to join, nor do you have to know anything about Philosophy. So, stop by and bring your unique perspective!
Students who join the Photo Club simply enjoy photography. They may be excited about taking photographs or exploring the art of photography itself. You do not have to be enrolled in one of the many photography courses at Nassau Community College to be a member of the Photo Club. Everyone with an interest in photography is welcome!
Each semester we hold biweekly meetings, usually on Tuesdays, during club hour ( a.m.) in the Photography section of Building G. We invite guest photographers to address our group on a wide variety of topics, ranging from the fine art of photography to special techniques used by successful commercial studio photographers. Past guest lecturers have included photojournalists, fine art photographers, and representatives from photo programs at the School of Visual Arts and C.W. Post. Other activities include the design and production of Photography Club greeting cards, exhibits of members’ work on campus, portfolio reviews of student work, and the viewing of photo-themed movies. Members of the Photo Club also go on field trips to galleries and museums in New York City.
PRIDE is NCC’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, straight, and questioning student organization. Our group’s main focus is to create a safe space for all!

Some of our club activities include having discussions, watching films, and sponsoring field trips and guest speakers. We meet every Tuesday and Thursday during club hour (am) in Building G, Rm. 333. We are also available Monday to Friday in the College Union, Rm. 311. All are welcome! If you have any additional questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to email us at
