I was fortunate enough to choose a community college over a university right after high school.
It may sound odd to seniors in high school now, but it was the best decision I made. At 17 I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life and let me tell you, stepping onto a community college you can take a sigh of relief because there you will find that it is normal! You try classes you think that interest you, take your general ed., and you grow as a person and you then find what your calling is. The counselors there that I have experienced were very insightful, helpful and extremely excited to help me on the path that I want to go. I couldn't be happier with my decision at chaffey. People might say it's over crowded, and I will agree, the first two weeks are always packed, but after that, students weed out, and the determined ones stay. And boom, parking problem is gone. If I had the chance to do it all over again I would. It has been a wonderful experience and I encourage family and friends to give Chaffey a chance as well. It really could change your college experience.
