Advantages of Attending:
You may have some friends who plan on attending a big 4-year university straight out of high school. You may feel some people look at you as not being smart when you say you plan on attending a community college.
Eases the transition from High school to College - Small classes means you will receive more one on one attention from the professors as you are beginning to learn college level curriculum.
You will save thousands of dollars in tuition costs - The tuition costs at 4 year universities has sky rocketed in recent years and there is no end in sight to these rising costs. By attending a less expensive community college for your first two years and then transfering to a four year college your total costs will be much lower
Allows you to live at home - There are many advantages to this. Save money, allow yourself a couple extra years to mature.
Gives you time to think about your career path before committing - Once you finish high school and are ready to beginning your academic journey at a 4-year institution.
Increases your level of Academic confidence - With the increased one on one time with professors available and smaller class sizes, on average a student starting out at a community college will have a much higher GPA in their first 2-years compared to if they started at a larger 4-year institution. This is really helpful if you decided to go on to earn your bachelors degree.
