Check out the best colleges for introverts https://insights.collegeconfidential.com/colleges-for-introverts
Introverts are not shy. They get their energy from being alone while extroverts recharge by being with other people. How can anyone recommend colleges for a group of people if they don’t understand their basic characteristics and needs?

A bit disappointed in the article and the accompanying list of schools as I expected an article focusing on the military academies.
@publisher, Why would an article about college suggestions for introverts focus on the military academies?
I’m an introvert and I can tell you Northeastern was a nightmare! Too big, too crowded, nowhere to go to be alone. I made it through one year and went in search of quieter pastures.
I don’t think you have to be at a small school. At a large school like Michigan tons of introverts. North Campus is like all trees, paths, man made lakes and very pretty and extremely quite. You don’t even think your on a college campus. You can be alone or be alone with others. Your choice.
IMO it is overly simplistic to say that every introvert would thrive at a given small group of colleges. Not every introvert can be lumped together – each individual is different and must be recognized as such.
My son who WAS an introvert thrived at a mid-sized university.with mostly small classes. He felt uncomfortable at LACs we visited (felt everyone would know his business and there would be no room to step back a bit if he wanted) and he thought he could get lost at a huge university. But what worked for my S may not work for others – every parent (regardless of the student’s personality) should listen to his/her child and (within what is affordable) try to find schools in his/her comfort zone.
@austinmshauri : My post was intended to be humorous.
The article suggests that the best schools for introverts are those that facilitate & encourage interaction among the community.
