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.
