Question:
What's the difference between a State University and a Technical Community College?

For example Fayetteville State University and a Fayettville Technical Community College. Both are in Fayetteville, NC




Answer:
the difference is this ---

usually at a community college you won't get a four-year degree (radically decreased earning potential with a 2 year as opposed to 4 year degree)

you will have many fewer course options with far less qualified professors (usually these teachers are pretty good -- but their teaching is aimed at GED students and part-time, non-traditional students -- basically, they can't push as hard and so the level of education drops)

in general, the state university will provide a top notch education and the community college is where you go if you can't get into a state or other college. it's a good option if it's the only option (actually, it's a great option in those circumstances)... but most people go there just to prove themselves qualified to transfer to and attend state university...

if you have the option, go state. no doubt
