Information about "Community Colleges" turning into "State Colleges"

<p>Florida's</a> community colleges shift toward 4-year degrees -- South Florida</p>

<p>This will help to free up UF & FSU from taking so many transfer students.</p>

<p>What do you think this does to schools like FAU, FIU, and UCF?</p>

<p>^ Clearly this is going to hurt their growth. They also haven't established decent graduate programs either.</p>

<p>I agree that it will hurt their undergraduate growth. But I'm afraid that the state will just pork feed their graduate programs and take away from the graduate programs at UF, USF, or FSU.</p>

<p>^ Don't worry UF & FSU will get theirs too. Their alumni bases are far too powerful. They are two of the strongest in the USA, and they are now starting to lobby together.</p>
