I went to one so I know .. okay?
1. NO student LOANS!
I went to community/state college for 2 years and got my AA in Early Childhood Education and did not have to take out a loan once. I was actually getting money BACK. so basically I got paid to go to college.
2. SAME classes as a UNIVERSITY.
All the classes I took at my community college (Palm beach state college) transferred over to my (Florida International University) university. There were NO classes I had to take over.
3. Smaller class sizes.
I am an introvert so being around big crowds or a lot of people is not my thing.
4. Community/state college prepares you for a university.
so many people come back home after a year or even a semester of university because they are homesick and they are overwhelmed with everything that comes with going to a four-year university. So, a two-year community/state college gives you the experience and knowledge of college w/ out the major changes.
ex. you can stay at home instead of moving to a dorm.
ex. you have the luxury to work with community college without being a broke college student at a university.
There are more reasons but these are the important four. If you planning on going to community/state college and need advice or help you can always email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
