Chalk Talk: Public vs. Private College
The basic difference between a pubic and a private college is how they’re funded. Private colleges are tuition-driven, which means the bulk of their operating budget comes from tuition. Because of this, most private colleges tend to have high tuitions, some of them extremely high. But they also tend to treat students more like customers, which means that they try to make the college experience more enjoyable and well-rounded. Some examples of this would be the housing that’s offered, the dining hall experience, and the academic support that’s offered to students, which tends to be more hands-on than at public universities. Also, private schools tend to be organized into colleges, whereas public tend to be universities, though there are exceptions to this.
