A person should attend an community college, if they are unsure of the direction they are going in life or if they want to take a few extra courses to broaden their knowledge and experience. In addition, people who do not have the financial means to attend a university should also attend a community college. A school is what you make it. Therefore, if you are a deligent, persistant, and determined you will do fine.
Houston Community College System (HCCS) is for everyone to attend, regardless your race, your age, the type of job you're working, your family situation.. There are always open doors welcome students from different levels and circumstances. I have been attending HCCS since Fall 2007 and I have met different people but all have the same desire of getting a higher education level, getting a degree to pursue their dreams.
People who do not have enough money to attend a university and who are still deciding on their major should attend a community college. Attending a community college does not mean you are stupid, there are just a few people out there who are not mentally prepared to step into a 4-year university. A community college is a great start for high school graduates because it gives you a chance to know how colleges work and slowly builds your mind to get use to the fast pace environment and hard work that colleges require.
There is not one type of person that should attend school, but a person that wants to succeed in their education has to be focused. The reason I say this because without focus you lose your vision. The person that's focused is also dedicated to achieving their goals and will not let life challenges deter them from completing their education or getting to their vision.
Any once who is looking for cheap education at the finest should apply, sometimes you get more than what you pay for
