Schools in Category: more than 25000 students
The largest schools in the country–those with an undergraduate student body of more than 25,000–is a designation generally reserved for larger public or state schools. These schools are popular not only for their wide range of athletic and extracurricular opportunities, but because many specialize in education for state residents. While lower-level classes at these schools generally do not warrant many opportunities for students to closely interact with their professors, such opportunities are made up for in later years, when class sizes decrease dramatically and specialized attention is more expected and encouraged. Despite their large size, many of these schools manage a small student-to-faculty ratio, which is a testament to their ability to maintain a community feel despite the size of the campus. Schools with student bodies of more than 25,000 students include Penn State, University of Florida, University of Michigan, and UCLA.
