What it is like going to a huge university with a lot of students? I am still deciding wether I shold go to a small college or a big university. Small colleges are good for small size classes, but since I am going to a really small high school, I am kind of tired of seeing the same poeple everysingle day and not having a choice of who to hang out with. What is social life like at a big university?

I went to both, and it was definitely easier to be noticed at the smaller university with its small class sizes. However, at the bigger school it was easier to make friends, the campus was larger and included bigger and better amenities, and there were more opportunities to be social and join societies and clubs. The academics and professors were excellent at both universities, but at the smaller one the professors were more approachable and available as they weren't teaching classes of 300 kids. So here's the question: would you rather go to a small school where you'll be noticed and have closer relationships with your professors but have less people around you with whom you can become friends, or go to a big school where you'll risk being just another number to your professors but meet way more people and have more of a social life?0
