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.

Maybe. But my son who is in community college right now is getting to know people and making friends right there.

For future networking opportunities that may depend on what you are studying. When I was in college my first couple of years were the basic courses, mostly not at all related to my major and were mostly in larger classes so I don't think that I would have missed any networking opportunities by going to community college.

Of course, there is nothing wrong at all with someone deciding to spend 4 years at one school and I can certainly see that depending on major and what is available where one is located that doing so may well be the best choice for the individual.
