When you research different colleges, it’s important to take the size of the student body into consideration. Some students feel that smaller class sizes will allow them to receive more individual attention, and will enable them to more easily develop relationships with their professors. Other students are able to concentrate well, even in heavily populated classrooms and lecture halls, and are willing to forego the benefits of smaller class sizes for the greater resources and diversity of program offerings from larger schools.

Whether it’s a public school or private school, larger universities tend to have more program offerings than small colleges. The University of Alaska Anchorage, for example, is the only college in the state to offer a bachelor’s or master’s degree in registered nursing. Many of the smaller schools with registered nursing programs only offer associate’s degrees.
