If you're about to send your son or daughter to college, community college might be an option you want to consider.
Brian Durant, vice president of student affairs at SUNY Adirondack, said a community college may be a great alternative to a traditional four-year school, especially if your student needs to work on his or her grades, motivation, or doesn't know what to study.
"Many students are not quite sure what they want to do," Durant said. "Where they are choosing to go, do they have the opportunity to explore?"
Community college student Marisa Hoard said she, like many of her peers, wasn't ready to go away to school. Additionally, attending a community college offers her lots of practical benefits.
"The commute was a lot easier for me," Hoard said. "And I'm paying for it on my now, so the price was a lot easier."
