When you're researching colleges pay attention to the number of students and the size of the classes in the major you are interested in to determine what size campus will work best for your personality and your academic goals.
Here are a few things to help you decide if a small or a large campus would be a better fit for you:
Do you enjoy personalized feedback from teachers? Then a small college campus might be the right fit for you.
Typically small colleges offer:
Some students thrive in a smaller setting, while others feel trapped. You might be sacrificing facilities, but you will be gaining specific attention from professors. You might not have sporting events to attend, but you will know your classmates and have a strong connection with them.
Are you anxious to get away from high school so you can enjoy being in a classroom where your professor won't know your name since you're among thousands of other students? Then a big college would be a good fit for you.
Typically large colleges offer:
To succeed at a large college, it's best to know which major or area you're interested in studying. Students who know what they want and are not afraid to speak up and take advantage of the many opportunities available tend to do best at large colleges.
