Remember that just because it feels like your hometown, there is no reason to act like Mommy and Daddy are going to handle everything for you. It is still a college, and studying and other responsibilities are still up to you. I met my husband at theis school, so I wouldn't choose another school if I had the chance, but I will say that I don't feel that I was prepared for the laid back approach most of the students had to college. I feel that on a bigger campus, I might have been swallowed up, but I may have also taken my education more seriously. That being said, a student with good study skills and a tight budget could get quite a bit out of the experience. Very affordable tuition, available on-campus housing, and low cost of living (including food and shopping) make an appealing atmosphere for those who can focus on their goals.
