List of the Smallest Colleges in Delaware

The small college experience is perfect for students who thrive in personalized learning environments. Smaller colleges mean smaller class sizes, which really allow you to not only get to know your peers, but also your professors on a personal level. While degree options are more limited than those of bigger colleges, the student advisors at small colleges generally put in the effort to help students discover their true passions and craft a major based off of that. Students are able to graduate with something that is true to them and reflects their strengths and talents.
