Would it be more beneficial for a person to go to a community college because of the amount of people attending as well?

Im not sure if the college that I want to go to would have to have a smaller amount of students or a higher amount of students? #wheredoigo #smaller #orbigger #college #college-selection #community-college

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.

Based on your comfort level. Do you currently attend a large school? Do you like that atmosphere? Being in a lecture hall with hundreds of other freshman can be a bit overwhelming. Have you visited a big campus? Some places will let you sit in on a class to get a feel for it. Campus tours can be a good decision maker.
