Dormitories Bring Nothing but Trouble.

Web Abstract: 
Advocates of campus housing at community colleges suggest that dorms are an effective means of replicating a full college experience at a lower price. In the author's opinion, community colleges should focus on the transfer, technical education, and work-force needs of the community, not attempt to be knockoffs of more-prestigious four-year institutions. The author offers a few examples of his own experiences with dorms at a community college to illustrate that building dorms at community colleges bring nothing but trouble.
