Why Small Colleges Are the Best
Getting from place to place is a breeze on a small campus! And speaking of breezes, when it’s cold outside, a trek across the entire campus hardly gives you enough time to shiver. With all the buildings so close together, you can take back-to-back classes stress-free and even sleep a little longer before your morning class begins.
On a small campus, there are always fun things to do – and more to go around! The personalized care here leads to opportunities for great events on campus, from dorm competitions to campus-wide contests and awards. Smaller events like open-mic night and karaoke are even more frequent – and don’t even get me started about the celebrations we have for holidays! Laughter is a consistent sound on a campus like UVF.
There’s a certain air about a small, close-knit campus like ours. Everyone is a part of the same culture, the same community, and it shows from the first moment you step onto the sidewalk. People often share the smile of an inside joke and the school has its own personality to which everyone contributes. Truly, the world is peaceful here.
Small schools allow you to stand out without being one of an endless crowd. That means when you sign up for clubs, attend auditions, or look for jobs, the whole campus becomes your oyster. You can develop your skills and learn to be the best without the intimidation of a large competition. There’s even space for you to start your own clubs and ministries!
