Cech I T WAS THE SUMMER OF Carol and I had spent four years at Grinnell College, located in the somnolent farming com-munity of Grinnell, Iowa. Now, newly married, we drove westward, where we would enter the graduate program in. I teach at a public liberal arts college which is typical of many. (Certainly our curriculum and requirements are in line with other schools in the COPLAC Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges.) Our students are required to complete credits to graduate, which over four years averages to 15 credits a semester, or five 3-credit courses.

      Additionally, the College of Education and Human Development, Mays Business School, and College of Agricultural and Life Sciences each educate more than 5, students per year. With more t students currently attending the College Station campus, Texas A&M is the largest school on our list (by enrollment). One of the most notable differences between a liberal arts college and a university is the size. Liberal arts colleges maintain a smaller student population with the goal of achieving a lower student-to-teacher ratio and creating a more intimate sense of community.
