John Flanagan: It was a good choice. All three of my adult children attended the local community colleges. It is a less expensive way to get them into the academic routine and they can transfer later to a four year school. It is also good for them to work part time and learn how to juggle a busy schedule. I think some young people simply can't do well going off to a four year college away from home when they are 17 or 18 years old and immature. Freshman college life is often beset by peer pressure to drink, run around, and become sexually active. In my view, this is tough considering the very loose moral code encouraged in our society. For those committed to their Christian faith and principles, they must connect with other Christian students and find a church home where their college is located. Being thus grounded, the transition away from home would be easier.
