The quality of instruction is the same because at the majority of CC's the professors work both at the CC and the closest University. For instance, in Boone, at Watauga campus of Caldwell Community College, over 2/3's of their teachers are also teachers at Appalachian State University.

I took a backpacking class there, a PE credit for anyone in a degree program, and it was taught by an ASU Art Professor.


not that this isn't to some extent true but i don't think a backpacking class is a good indicator of "quality of instruction."

It was actually an awesome class. Our exam was telling a story around the camp fire. I stayed up all night with the professor talking politics and drinking liquor out of nalgene bottles. When we ran out we started raiding other passed out students tents for more booze. The 10 mile hike up the side of Mt Rogers the next day was pretty brutal......

Of course that isn't really helping to prove my argument, but fug it was only a 1 credit course.

Well now that you mention it. I was on probation at the time. After we got drunk the teacher kept saying to me, "You wanna smoke some? I could intimidate a student into getting us high?"

I probably told him that I was on probation like 10 times and that I couldn't smoke.
