Chalk Talk: Considerations About Private Colleges
Private colleges are becoming more and more expensive, but with this expense can come many benefits and can be defrayed through scholarships, work study programs, and federal loans. Because private colleges are funded by tuition, they tend to treat students more like customers, which means they want to make sure students have a positive experience. This often translates to lifestyle concerns, such as the quality of the food in the dining hall, on campus activities, and the like. Private colleges tend to be smaller and try to focus on the needs of the individual students, which includes academic support. Class sizes tend to be smaller, as well, which can be of great help to students who can be overwhelmed in a larger classroom experience.
