Friday College Town Hall

Categories: Admissions Advice

In Friday College Town Hall, we post a question about college or education, and you leave an answer in the comment field.

Today’s question comes from Inside Higher Ed:

A study from Sallie Mae said that 22% of college students with a family income of over $100,000 opted for a community college last year. Four years ago, the number was at 16%.

 

What do you think is behind this fact that more affluent students are going to community college? Should community colleges update their facilities to accommodate these students?
