Karl talks with Elena about the difference between Montgomery College and a four-year college.

Karl Meyer

I am 22 years old and have been attending Montgomery College for two years now with one semester left to go before I graduate. I’ve lived in the Rockville area for 8 years and before that, another 7 years St. Louis Park, Minnesota. Before that I lived in Austria and Australia, the place of my birth.

My major is Information Systems. It used to be Computer Science, but it turned out I’m awful at math, so I switched over to something still in the general field of computing and less math intensive.

I’ve been interested in the production of entertainment as a hobby for going on 8 years now. During this time, I’ve learned a lot about what exactly I want to do in this medium. Now, after all this time observing, I can finally put everything I’ve learned to work to create some really great content for you. I hope you join me and have as much fun watching my content as I did making it.

  1. Great video content and quality. I think a lot of students are often curious about the difference between community vs 4 year university. Great job!

  2. This is a great informative video for many students especially seniors getting ready for college. You give such great information especially from two different standing points of (4 year & 2 year) colleges options.

  3. Hey Karl! Great job! I found that it was really cool to meet folks in other majors at my four year college and most of my best friends were in different majors. I learned almost as much from them as I did from my classes! So, I don’t think that sharing a major or interest poses any limits to potential friendships.

  4. Nice job, as an alum of both MC and Towson University I can tell you there are unique aspects to both 2 and 4 year schools. The education quality will always very from class to class, I had great professors at both schools, and professors I did not like at both schools. The lower cost, and number of students trying out college made MC’s coursework much lower pressure. This led me to trying various elective courses I probably never should have pursued. After about a semester, I pinned down a degree program, and studied the coursework both at TU and Salisbury. I made sure the rest of the classes I took at MC were transferable, and instead of focusing on earning an Associates Degree, I spent my time focusing on courses which would apply to my selected major. Upon acceptance to both Universities, I then opted to go to Towson, primarily due to the proposed course load. This is a path I have often recommended to younger students, as it is one of the most cost effective measures possible.

    Good luck in your transition, and thank you for choosing to be a leader amongst your peers.
