Listen to Why Community College

Reasons to start at a community college

 Written by Jesús Gomez

 

 As a high school senior who’s about to graduate it’s about time to decided and apply for college. There’s been questions ‘’Is it alright to start off at a community college?’’ my name is Jesús Gomez a senior at Newark Memorial High School and the answer to the question is yes indeed it is. Starting at a community college is a smart way it’s cheaper and helps you save more money compared to any four year university, besides after completing two years at a community college you have the choice to transfer to a university and finish off the two years left.
  My purpose for this essay is to explain how going to a two year community college first is a great choice compared to going straight to a four year university. First of all let’s compare, going to a community college is much cheaper compared to any UC or CSU. Community college tuition and fees are approximately 50% lower than tuitions of 4-year colleges

and universities. In that fact it can save you up money for your extra expenses, gas, rent, food, and etcetera. Also community colleges have agreements with four year universities, you have the choice to transfer after completing two years at any community college.
   Many high school seniors seek help to pay for college. Lot’s of students want to go straight to a four year college after high school although the tuitions for these universities can be pretty expensive going straight to a four year university directly doesn’t have to be necessary in fact some students choose to go to a community college first which is a smart choice and much affordable to start with, Ohlone College for example their tuition for one academic year is $1,104 compare it to a CSU which is six times higher up to $7,025, or a UC eleven times higher up to $12,129, or private colleges which are almost fifty times higher up to $25,000 or to $55,000. And that is why i'm choosing to go a community college and Ohlone is my choice.
   No matter what other people think or say there is nothing wrong with going to a community college it’s still college. Attending a community college can give you chance to prepare for financial demands or of a 4-year university if you plan on transferring. A community college has the ability to transfer your credits to another institution, there are smaller classes that allow more personalized instruction, and provides flexible schedules that provides both day and night courses if you plan to work part time or choose to work full time. I am glad i made a decision to start at a community college and i hope i helped give a better point of view of starting at a community college.
