Anyone attending a school that is considered a suitcase college- the majority of students go home on weekends- if so could you give me a feel of the school for those that stay on most weekends. Is there a critical mass of students needed for a decent social atmosphere?
My D applied to mostly public schools both in state and oos- most of the schools would be considered suitcase schools. She has applied to one very small private 1500 students which is a very residential school. The public schools range in size from 3500 to 20,000 so the public schools will most likely have more students around on the weekend but a much smaller % of the total student body overall.
She will try to visit and attend Thursday classes -overnight on Thursday and see what happens on Fridays when she decides which schools to consider.
I would appreciate if you could share your experience at this type of school.
