Attending a community college is really beneficial, the student can save money while studying and prepping for the university of their choice. The college provides multiple opportunities for student life such as student activities (sports, organizations, clubs, festive gatherings) and and tutoring at many of the locations. My class are flexible and fits my schedule perfectly. The professors teach well and are very approachable if the student has a question. The student can receive financial aid help from counselors and academic advisors are very willing to help the student through academic crisis. my experience is very enjoyable. I'm glad that my path brought me here because I go to school at an affordable price while getting the material I need and preparing to go to a university.
