Regardless of whether you are a high school student or a university graduate or college graduate and want to move over, you still need to be aware of the benefits and disadvantages of school size. I went to a state university where more than 46,000 students attended, but I had friends who attended small private schools where 5000 students attended. The following few paragraphs should be noted to list the benefits and disadvantages. This is based on my opinion and personal experience on a large university. The evaluation of small private schools may be dismissed because I never visited them personally.
Right from the bat when you think of a big university (Texas, Ohio State, University of Florida), you think sport. One of the most important advantages of a major university is athletic programs. If you are an athletic fan, participation in a first class football school can influence your decision. Television games, pep rallies, homecoming parades and rivals are all part of a major university. However, you do not have to love sports to go to D-I school. There are thousands of great university students who have nothing to do with sport, and that is because there are so many other things.
Large schools have large libraries and media centers. There are plenty of room for study and plenty of computer labs to work during your class. I used to go to a computer lab (there were hundreds of computers there) between my classrooms and surf the Internet or have completed my homework last night. In a small school, there may be only one library, and it may be too far from its path. In a high school there is a library, study path, or computer lab in every corner.
Food is another advantage of participating in a major university. They have several restaurants, not to mention the Dunkin 'Donuts, Starbucks, Chik-Fil-A, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and all the other fast-food restaurants in the middle of the campus. You can get food anywhere. And the dining rooms actually have their meals. They do not serve Helda's three-day meatballs and peas. Every morning, freshly baked omelette with bacon and pancakes. I bet you do not know at Flagler College.
The great advantages of the great university are social aspects (brotherhood, brotherhood, intramural, clubs, student government, etc.). Most universities have a distinct arm to know what they are doing. Another advantage of the campus houses is the stork (and sometimes sophomores). This gives you the opportunity to wake up 10 minutes before departing the class and walking in the PJ.
The big school disadvantages are huge-sized classes. Probably 900 people can have a class. No matter what you say, or how many questions in the classroom, the professor will not know his name. Teachers teach a lot of teaching, which means they are not as high quality as you want. In a big university you only have a few people and you can be lost in the crowd. Finally, every professor thinks he is hot shot and is more interested in his own research than helping the students.
Small universities, however, have smaller classes. These smaller departments can put more emphasis on learning and practical experience. I've never been to a small university, but I probably have larger individual professions. This is not a specific curriculum, followed by thousands of people every semester. In smaller classes, students can get to know their professors better. This is great at the time when it's time to find the letter of recommendation. Try receiving a letter from a teacher when you were only 900 students in the classroom.
Consultants are very well acquainted with students in attending another college. Try to find advice at the major university at the Humanities College. They see a hundred puppies a day and never remember their name and classes. In addition, there is a greater sense of community in the school. You are not just a ID card number, here is a person with a face and a name.
