List of the Smallest Colleges in Virginia

The small college experience is preferred by certain students. Those who learn best with more one-on-one interaction with peers and professors, and hands-on projects will appreciate small colleges in Virginia. If a strong sense of community is important to you, then attending a small college will allow you to become involved in extracurricular activities with other students sharing similar interests. Because small colleges usually don't have many majors to choose from, they make it up by allowing their students to create their own major based on their career goals and interests. To help you narrow down your college choices, we have put together a list of Virginia's smallest colleges below for you to look through.
