What is a Community College
Community colleges are divisions of state universities that allow students to attend college for the first two years and then transfer to a university and graduate from there. This is the so-called 2+2 Model (2 years at Community Colleges + 2 years at the chosen university). This is a very widespread model among North American students since about 45% of undergraduate students in the United States start in this type of institution to later transfer and graduate from a university.
Walt Disney, George Lucas, Halle Berry, Tom Hanks, astronaut Eileen Collins, Black & Decker CEO Nolan Archibald, actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, the first Hispanic woman in Congress leana Ros-Lehtinen, Morgan Freeman are some of the celebrities who studied at community colleges and then transferred to a university.
