If you have ever attended a community college....

Do you feel like you received a good education while you were there?

I feel like I am getting a great education, most of my professors teach the same material at other universities.

  • I should probably add that I plan to attend a 4 year for my bachelors pretty soon and I guess I can compare them then. I will definitely miss my school though.

  • i think it depends on the professor wherever you go. i think my community college was okay and i did learn alot, but it was definatly not as demanding as the university i am attending now.

  • I believe it depends on the person and you can learn a lot no matter where you go to school, and you can also do a lot of learning on your own. Unfortunately, though, certain schools open doors. Politics play too big of a role in education and the job market, imo.

  • The one I went to in my home state, yes. The one I'm going to now, not so much. It's like pulling teeth to get any questions answered and they refuse to process anything on time. I've heard it used to be a great school but has gone downhill and I have to agree with at least that much.

  • I've found the quality to vary from class to class. more the teaching than the curricula.

  • I feel my CC did a good job. I was able to transfer to my 4 year having completed all gen ed coursework at a much cheaper tuition rate too. The 4 year was pricey.
