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 place where a person would go to when all hope has failed for them in their life only to find out that they will eventually end up at a dead end job with nothing more than an associate's degree.
Chandler: I lost my job, my home, my car, my money, I guess I best be off to community college.
Monica: O don't worry baby. It will get better.
Chandler: Really?
Monica: No, not really. Do you want me to be supportive or truthful?

A place where I went as a hope to transfer to a university as a junior. I earned an associates degree in three different subjects, and I soon realized that there are absolutely no employers who really give a rat's ass about an AA degree. I got accepted to a UC school that costs 27k a year and had to decline my admissions due to the cost.

College is simply too time consuming and expensive for what it is. Many of my buddies are graduating with BA's, MA's and are in some serious, reversible debt reaching close to 100k. Don't fall into the trap of thinking college is the only way to be successful. Create your own business or invest the money into something else besides a degree. Buy real estate in this down market and cash out kids.
What we don't understand is that there isn't a mysterious job market that opens up to us when we graduate from a Community College or University. It's just the same o' lame minimum wage corporate jobs that you could get without a degree anyway. Avoid the dogmatic trap and do something more beautiful.

Named because they will accept anyone in the community. Other than online only schools like University of Phoenix or Walden University, they are probably the worst of all college education.

A community college is where you go when you think you need to go to college, but don't really want to. The rest of people think that they are going to transfer to a better school, but will just end up dropping in a couple of semesters.
The percentage of people who actually graduate from community college is only slightly higher than people who make a successful career out of being a waiter.

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."
