Big College v.s. Small College
An in-depth look at both ends of the spectrum involving the never-ending debate
In college, a lot of the freedom of choice and prefrences really weigh-in to a students selection of a college, that they choose to attend over the next however many years to achieve the degree that the person desires. One enormous part of the selection that plays into every students mind of where they want to attend college, is whether or not the student is more comfortable attending in a small college atmosphere or a large college one. In this essay I survey the pros and the cons of both prefrences.
When it comes to attending a small college, I believe some of the pros really are self-explanatory. If you're attending a small college, chances are you are absolutely going to have more of a hands on experience in the small classroom setting, as well of a closer relationship with your professor. Another pro to being at the small school, is there is definitely an undeniable feeling of knowing everyone on campus and without a doubt feeling as if you are all one big family.
If you go to the other side of the spectrum to look at the pros of attending a large college, you will notice that while you may not be getting the close realtionship with teachers, nor maybe the hands-on experience you get in a smaller classroom setup, chances are you will still be okay with what you are trading in for. In the large school experience you are getting something you will cherrish probably for your whole life, you are going to meet many more people and develop realtionships with people you probably never imagined you would be friends with, you also get a chance to find out who you really are because you are in a school with so many people that chances are, it will feel like you are in a private city. Also maybe, thats what needed your whole life that you never realized you needed in the first...
