“You go to school at a community college?
It must be so easy since it is not a real college/university!”
They say that community college is a lot worse than a four-year college or university. They say only slackers go to community colleges so they barely have to do any type of work. They say professors are terrible and do not know what they are doing at all. They say that anyone who goes to a community college will not get a good job in the future. They may say all of these and more, but have the people saying this ever attended a community college before? Probably not! There are advantages and disadvantages, but every college or university has them.
It only takes one person to go around telling others how bad community college is. Who ever does receive this information could easily believe what they have heard. Not only believe it, but also pass it along to many others. Everything that is said or done becomes a chain most of the time. Everyone has their own opinions, but to criticize somewhere, something, or someone without knowing the facts is not the way to go.
Since some people do not take the time to look at the facts, it is my turn to tell the truth about community colleges. Keep in mind that each advantages and disadvantage that I mention can be different from anyone’s point of view. Some main advantages: Community colleges are cheap, therefore a great way to try and save some money. Each class has no more than thirty students in it. Most professors also teach at great universities. There are many different clubs and programs to get involved in, if you would like. It is a great way to bring up a bad grade point average. Some four-year institutes have transfer agreements with community colleges. Going to a community college for two years doesn’t set you back at all or have any kind of penalties. Some main disadvantages: Students have to commute because there are no dorms on campus....
