N.J. community colleges have their advantages

N.J. community colleges have their advantages
BY BOB HOLT
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

It's back to school time again, and many students will be entering college for the first time. For these students to be most productive during their time at college they need to choose a school which suits their needs and one where they will feel the most comfortable.

One option they shouldn't overlook is that of a two-year community college. Four-year colleges are more high profile, but community colleges offer open enrollment, accepting students who have a high school diploma or the equivalent.

Raymond Yannuzzi has been president of Camden County College since February 2007. "Camden County College is a very comprehensive two-year school, "said Yannuzzi. "We currently have nearly 17,000 students enrolled in degree programs."

Yannuzzi sees students entering Camden County College at an earlier age. "The average age of our students used to be 26 or 27. Many come in right from high school, and are 18 to 21 now."

Victoria Lees of Stratford was older than that when she decided to go back to college. "I was really nervous about returning to school," she said. "Camden County College took the fear out of it for me."

She had more to worry about than nerves. The mother of five children had twins in second grade when she started classes. The Blackwood campus location became an advantage for Ms. Lees, as it was about twenty minutes from her home.
