Whichever one I could afford.
I've been to both college and university. (Not a community college we are a little different in ontario). Both were very good educational experiences
They were different that's for sure,
The college program I did actually required a university degree for admission. It was a much more intense workload. Much more practical classes, more concentrated learning.
Assuming I could afford it, I would prefer a university.
On point. Much to learn from dropouts turned entrepreneurs!
Either one would have been fine, depending upon my career choice. I only went to school with specific goals. I never wanted to be a professional student.
Took uni courses at 16, went to CC at 18. Then I decided that neither was for me.
In Canada, we now call collage, University.
I'm already in a university. Collages aren't as popular here in Bulgaria. We have government programs where Bulgarian citizens pay so much less for tuition, there are limited spots every year that the top x number of people from entry exams get to study that way. Let's just say that I pay less than 1\7 of what my fee would be.
I went to both and recommend it, unless you are wanting to get accepted for post graduate in a field like medical school which has very high standards of achievement to get admitted.
I went to a university back in the early 70's and could afford to pay for it with what I made in summer jobs and a little part time during the year. That's not possible now. If I went now it would be a community college or a trade school.
