Colleges in the Boston or Providence area
I am currently a freshmen in college in CT and I can't stand it so I am looking to transfer for either the spring semester or next year. I am attending a private school right now and a lot of the students are very rich and more into partying than their grades. I understand that this is a common occurrence in colleges and I will get that no matter where I go but I am a good student (i'm in the honors program at my current college) and I want to be surrounded by other students who are also serious about their work. I want the small class size and rigor of a private school but the friendliness/humbleness of a public school. I know this is a lot to ask for but can anyone think of some schools that kind of fit this description? Thanks guys!
By the way I hope to go into a communications/media studies/journalism type of path.
