Can I get close relationships and a rigorous, hands on education at a large school?
Hello! I am just starting the college visiting process and just finished visiting 2 of my local colleges, Birmingham Southern and UAB. I really loved how large and vibrant UAB was, with a lot of opportunities for student life and service, and Birmingham Southern felt deserted to me and didn't have much in terms of student life. Thus, I am thinking of going to a larger school. However, I really liked Birmingham Southern's academics, with lots of hands-on learning and relationships with the professors, as well as small classes. If I went to a huge college 30,000+, would I still get that? Do you know any schools in the south that offer that? Is it useless to even look? I am also not a party gal, but I love school spirit and trying new things. Hopefully this makes sense! Any advice would be appreciated.
