    It’s simple – the more education and skills you get, the more career options you’ll have and its a combination of hard work and more education to be successful

    I think students interested in the UC system should certainly consider the CC to UC route - my CC offers great access to the UC's including a 2nd look agreement with UCLA through our honors program and the option of tagging one of the UC's that offer this option. Taking this route not only makes great schools accessible but also dramatically decreases the cost of undergraduate education, effectively making grad school seem less of a stretch. I have also benefitted from small classes, great professors and a smaller campus environment at my CC all of which have allowed me to get involved, grow as a human being and find my space.

    I'm a firm believer and walking proof in the opportunity that community colleges provide.

    If you work your butt off in a community college to get straight A's and show leadership in whatever activities the school has to offer, then 4-year colleges will look at your transfer application seriously, very seriously.

    @RainbowBritey Another advantage to a small campus environment is that you will have more contact with your professors both in and out of the classroom. You can stop by before or after class to speak with the professor for a few minutes. When you attend a larger school, professors will often let their teaching assistants lead class discussions, grade papers and meet with students. You may never have the chance to speak with one of your teachers in person because those teachers do not have time in their schedules to meet with all students.

    @suraydavu absolutely! I have built valuable relationships with professors through office hours too!
