By no means should you feel that way. If anything you'll be experiencing a much better scholastic and personal route by starting your community college first and then transferring it to a university. Myself and some of my friends should know since we went that particular route and we're all happy that we did. Here's some of the reasons why it's much better:
a) it's a lot cheaper to take those first two years of common cirriculum classes at a community college than at a university,
b) it's much more personal than a university. I don't know about anyone else's experience, but in my Austin community college classes they never went over 20 students, which created a very close interaction with the professor and the students,
c) you'll have a separate AA degree that you can use to enter either some kind of advanced workforce or student assistant program while you're later going to your your university (a bonus that helps pay for the later university costs)
d) it's much easier to obtain honor's status at a community college, which makes transferring to any other university so much more prestigous (such as in my case)
e) you'll more than likely be living closer, which helps in keeping close to your friends and family members, and
f) by the time you graduate with your associates you'll have a much clearer idea of what your future major at your university will, and it's subsequent career as well.
g) you'll generally be around people who are serious about their schooling. Community colleges don't have the distractions like sorority clubs, recreation rooms, gyms, football arenas, etc. It's for the majority just classrooms and libraries, meaning chances are that those around you are serious about their schooling.
Hope this info helps and good luck with your schooling.
No, you should not feel inferior even if you are not in any college at all. Since you ask the question that you did it appears that you would prefer to be in a four year school.
Work hard, get you AA and then transfer.
No. I'll be going somewhere tougher, probably just to realize that it didn't freaken matter what college I went to.
