What is better: studying in a big city or in a college town?
Teenagers usually have these two options to choose. College towns are small and there are places where students, teachers and other people who work for the colleges and the universities, dominate. These towns usually have developed infrastructure that is devoted to student life, their needs, entertainment, catering and studying. Living in this campus, you will mainly communicate only with the members of this student community, while security can be better there while opportunities for various activities and entertainment are great. Studying in big cities such as New York or Boston you will have unlimited off-campus opportunities while student clubs there are numerous and famous.
Choosing a college to study, you will not be able to anticipate your future social life, friends you will make there and success you will achieve. Just choose the field to major and activities according to your hobbies and you will have unbelievably great time.
