While some may feel a small town college atmosphere may be lacking a social aspects of bigger and more well known colleges, I think this makes it easier to learn. There is a better professor to student ratio. You aren't tripping over other students for a chance to speak/ask the professor a question. Its easier to get email questions answered. Also, the professors are very understanding and quick to answer questions/ teach you the course, no matter how long it takes.
