The best suggestion has to fallon the offer of flexibility on working adults in improvingcost-effectiveness and quality.
Thisresearch is specific for campus students and campus life. Thisresearch has brought to life thoughts and beliefs of university lifeand how it compares to life in community colleges. Conducting theresearch was approving and educating as it provided moreenlightenment on higher education life. The results of the researchwere surprising especially with the high number working studentswhile still pursuing their studies. It was very interestingcollecting data on this project.
Therecommendations made for the success of this project relate to eachof the three problems analyzed.

This is especially on creating flexiblestudy-working hours for such students so as to ensure that allstudents acquire the relevant skills they need and through the mostquality method.

Communitycolleges also provide students with more flexible conditions forstudying especially for students who work while still studying.Students with special needs and disabilities too have had anopportunity to enroll to community colleges and achieve their dreamstoo. Community colleges give a chance to students who require extravocational experience especially after secondary education and evenfor elderly persons in the community. Veterans and otherprofessionals return to community colleges to gain more skills andexperience to add to what they have.
