ebotdzI actually got a lot out of my science and math courses in community college. Small classes with actual teacher interaction. By the time I finished my calculus sequences there were about 12 people in the class. If I took those classes at university, I'd be lucky to talk to a TA.
Either way, they both have their shortcomings. There has been plenty of nonsensical bull shit to deal with at both.
McNocheI am a university man myself. But I had a buddy say "community college is like high school with ash trays". So that's how I view them.
J-yoAs I'm a semester away from transferring looking back I've had a pretty shit experience in community college. Granted I'm a minimum of 2 hours away from snow, but the experience at the school has been less than enjoyable too. Anyone else have a similar experience? Anyone who has transferred from a CC find that you like being at a University better?
OregonDeadIf I had to do it over I probably would have started at C.C. First semester at a fancy 4 year school was pretty rough and an expensive way to get started in college.
The cost of C.C. is so much less and people can still get scholarships and financial aid. .
CabbyArrantop I fucking hate Cc I can't wait to transfer.
J-yoDitto my friend. I guess I'm definitely looking for more of social life when I transfer. Like the academics are fine, I can deal with them being hard/boring or having a shit teacher or whatever. But when it comes down to it seems like most community colleges (or just the ones I've attended) are occupied by kids that have no desire to leave that area. Obviously that isn't entirely true, but I just see/meet people that don't have a ton going on and are fine with doing nothing living at mom and dads.
