With expansion of Wash. U. class sizes, bigger isn’t always better

For many applicants to Washington University, the school’s small-to-medium size is a huge advantage on the college pros and cons list. Smaller colleges offer more individualized education—you aren’t just a face in the crowd. You have the advantage of taking smaller classes, knowing your professors personally and getting opportunities for a customized education. At a smaller college, you are part of a community—even though it’s impossible to know everyone at Wash. U., you will see lots of familiar faces walking around campus.
