Depends on what your trying to get out of school.
College is good for saving money and for degrees that don't look very hard at what school you went to. For example nursing, you should go to the most affordable yet good college. Because at the end of the day you'll get a job.
University is important for degrees that look at your past school, and can affect you getting a job. Like being a college professor or a musician. Or if you want to go to school for social environment, than university is the way too go. Not saying college doesn't have a good social environment.
Or you can do both. Like do your bachelor's at a college and your masters at a university.1
