@Awesome_Lensfun1 @Riley_Lightgrate Community college and university differ in the amount of pressure that they put on their students. You can read about that here:
However, you do have private colleges (like Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Wheaton College, Moody Bible Institute, the Master's College, to name a few). These are virtually the same as universities in terms of what you'll experience...the difference is that state universities receive funding from the state they are located in whereas private colleges do not. If the state isn't picking up part of the tab, you end up paying for the whole thing, which leads to higher tuition costs. Cah-ching!
Sometimes you do get what you pay for through. Private colleges tend to have smaller class sizes (because less people are willing to pay to get in them ) and the resulting degree may be more prestigious and look better on your resume. They tend to be better for art stuff and computer science stuff and writing stuff, performing arts - you'll find specialty schools in those areas, like ones entirely dedicated to fashion design or computer science, for example. Esoteric math.
On the other hand, if you're looking to go into a more scientific field or engineering or the like, you're probably better off going to a state university. That's because those fields need research grants and cash from the government and contacts from the industry as their oxygen, and universities tend to be better at getting that for their students. It's a bit more complicated than that so obviously you should research the schools in your area before making decisions, but that's the general rundown.
