When you pick a school with a traditional campus, there are certain things that you should expect. Abundant student services, multiple student events and organizations, financial aid and guidance offices, and of course, advanced technology to assist in your learning. Campus schools are often called "brick and mortar" schools or "traditional" schools, and it's thought by many that they can provide more services to students. Just because this is a common belief doesn't mean it's actually true. The schools that provide computer labs, tutor support, financial aid services and one-on-one meetings with your professors can also be found online. Like everything else, proper research on campus schools can lead you to find the perfect college.
Once you begin looking for a college, start to think of what is important to you. How are you getting to school? Location is key to many students who need something within a 10 or 20 mile radius. How big is the student body? Some students want smaller classes, while other students want more sporting events and organizations that come with larger schools. What kinds of degree programs are offered? You shouldn't settle for any school that doesn't teach what you're more interested in. Does the school have a research facility? A school without a library isn't a school at all. Finally, how advanced is the school's technology? It's commonplace for a campus school to have a computer lab, audio/visual devices, and integrated tools like smart phone applications.
Looking for a campus school gets easier if you know what to look for. Hopefully your search yields a list of options that you can pick and choose from. You should also remember to analyze your financial aid package and work in an orientation visit to see if the college is right for you.
