The liberal art college isn’t always small or as described in this article. You don’t have attendance taken in the form of “clickers”. All your classes aren’t done in lecture style with scantron sheets as tests. You don’t have professors you had but never knew and had to deal with Graduate students teaching the class or labs. Actually it is much better to attend a small college for the Bachelor’s degree and then attend a bigger university setting for a Masters and Ph.D. Students who attended smaller colleges tend to do better and go on to higher education. In large universities, sports does seem to rule the roost and take over the personality of college. If sports is that important then I would question the real interest in actually being educated. And if attendance truly is being taken with “clickers”, I would be concerned why students have so little interest in attending class.
