Don’t let the small college label fool you; there are big merits to attending a small college! The truth is, bigger isn’t always better, and sometimes it takes a little research to realize the best fit for you. It’s easy to want to attend a larger university -- your friends are going there, your parents went there, or maybe you’ve wanted to go there your whole life! Jumping on the bandwagon is easy. Although it’s a little extra work, it’s best to ask yourself a few more questions and do a little more research in order to make the best decision for you and your academic career.
