And college is more than just getting a diploma. Sometimes transferring in means you miss out on getting to know people, make friends, and establish future networking opportunities.

Funny how that works. We have had a number of students go through our local community college and gain membership into Phi Theta Kappa. Once in PTK, they networked and were given opportunities for scholarships that would have been closed to them if they had gone straight to a 4-year university. We just found out today that one student has been fully funded to go to University of Denver next semester.
