Community college question...

I see people walking around in community college sweatshirts and tshirts and stuff and I just don't understand why.

Isn't a community college a stepping stone to a major university? Why would you wear a shirt from there unless you taught there? I can see being a professor and having pride in your work... Considering how many people I see walking around in them, I somehow doubt we have THAT many professors showing school pride.

Could someone please explain to me why you'd wear a community college shirt?

To clarify: I see nothing wrong with ATTENDING community college. Many people do and its fine. It is the shirt that I asked about. 

Would you buy a tshirt from a gas station on the way to Disney World? Your goal was Disney, you just needed some fuel to get there. If your goal is a bachelors degree, why do you need to represent your gen ed years?

Because they go there?

Because they like it?

Because there is nothing wrong with attending a two year university, either as "it" for you for college or as a stepping stone to a four year school

Why do you care?

I'm genuinely curious. Why even buy it? It isn't high fashion, it isn't a big name sports team to support...

Some acquire their associates there or obtain a certificate to teach.

Shallow much? Community college is still college, and something to be proud of.

Wow. Judge much? Many community colleges offer degrees which lead to employment immediately, without the debt of a traditional four-year institution. If they're proud of that, kudos

I have one.

If it still fit me yeah, I sure would.  It's purple and has a pirate on it, what more could a girl want?
