For Achievers, a New Destination - New York Times

The Sunday edition of the New York Times included an interesting feature article on the growing importance of two-year community colleges, including profiles of the nation's most recognized institutions. Among the standard bearers was a school that I attended briefly, Oakton Community College, located in the northern suburbs of Chicago and serving one of the most affluent and educated communities in the nation. I have heard rumors that Oakton was planning to offer four-year degrees, and they have aggressively developed their facilities. I live all of six blocks from the school's Skokie campus and I can't speak highly enough for the efforts Oakton has made to improve the neighborhood.
