look up any word, like donkey punch:
A place where students actually pay for their education unlike University Students who's parents spend $45,000 a year so they can major in basket weaving. Community colleges are for people who are really career orientated unlike University students who can party all night every week, not study, and pay the professors off to give them a C average. Even though community colleges might lack some social atmosphere, some have plenty of clubs for students interests who can join to meet new people and develop friendships which an alternative to the traditional University fraternity/sorority where people become warped and mind controlled by a sick diabolical satanic frat leaders with no empathy for humanity and who have been groomed to be elitists. 1.5 million students attend community college around the country. Their are many career choices at CC to choose from and you spend a lot less money. Some CC's are even better than some Universities in terms of class size, cost, educational environment, and professors. CC's tend to be even more culturally diverse than Universities because certain Universities only accept rich white kids (waspy) because their families have certain connections and descend from medieval royalty.
"He graduated from community college with an associate degree in Landscaping & Horticulture. He started his own landscaping business and is living well off."

"He graduated from a prestigious University with a engineering degree but can't find a job because all the engineering jobs have been outsourced to China and India. Now he's washing dishes at TGI Friday's trying to make ends meet. The economy sucks."

The only type of school that I could afford thanks to a tanking economy.

Funny enough, it also makes everything you did in high school irrelevant.
I was accepted to the University of Illinois-UIUC. But after crappy financial aid and being unable and unwilling to get many loans, I ended up having to go to the local community college instead.

A transitional phase between the acquisition of a high school diploma (during which considerable luck was involved) and either homelessness or lower-middle class obscurity.
I got an associate's degree (abbreviated "FD" for its more common term, fake degree) from my community college because someone told me the reason I wasn't learning anything in school was ADD, instead of actually making me confront the fact that my head is full of mashed potatoes and that I would be a ditch digger for the rest of my life unless I chose to, God forbid, apply myself to my education.

A type of college you pay for by course units over the traditional semester-set fees in universities.
A term which people on Urban Dictionary rant the shit out of, because they thought they could graduate with an associate's degree and be set for life, or take any courses they want and expect to transfer to a top-prestigious school. Sorry, but that's not how it works.

It's nobody's fault but your own if you weren't aware of what credits would transfer or not. You're supposed to plan this before you enroll in your classes. If you plan on transferring to state college, ideally within the same state, you're not going to have issues with your credits. However, taking intermediate algebra over college algebra isn't going to fly with most universities. If you feel your college or guidance office failed you, why don't you rant on about that particular school, so that people can spend their money elsewhere?

Trying to convince people on Urban Dictionary to avoid comm. college, or mostly trying to belittle people who do go because of YOUR misfortune is just petty. When you're in tough economic times, and financial aid doesn't give a pot to piss in, people don't have much of a choice these days. Community college can offer great benefits for some people, including affordable tuition & high flexibility, while being able to take your standard freshman/sophomore courses.

A lot of people transfer from college to university, and a lot do not. Nobody is to blame in life but yourself.
Urban Dictionary user: LOL community college is for losers yo
*goes back to playing xbox*

Me: Is it really? I'm sorry to hear that.
