Magaly, number of students is one factor to consider when choosing a college. However, people vary on how important that is to them. Community colleges are supported by taxes and can cost less than 4-year colleges, especially ones at which living on campus is required. Community colleges generally don't offer residence halls. Many students find the course of study leading to preparation for a certain type of job or for further education is the most important factor. After all, there are plenty of things you can do to be around people without enrolling in school. Focusing on an area of study which interests you and can help lead to a career that aligns with your goals may be more important than number of students. Some people learn better with smaller class sizes, so that may be a more relevant factor than total enrollment of a school.
