You probably know the saying "big fish in a small pond." What about small fish in a big pond? Or medium-sized ponds? Old adages aside, school size and student population can greatly influence your university experience.

What springs to mind when you think "liberal arts college"? Scruffy poets and philosophers discussing lofty ideas under leafy trees? Artists painting "Save the Whales" signs?
