To rate a school in the simplest form one would need to evaluate three aspects of the college: the academic offerings and teaching, the facilities, and the social atmosphere. The top-rated schools are those which excel in those three departments, however, only the larger schools are taken into consideration for these ratings, which then disadvantages smaller colleges like Coppin State University. Most colleges offer the necessary academics, that goes without saying; if it were anything other than that the college would not be registered and accredited. What we really need to look at are the remaining two aspects- facilities and social atmosphere. To summarize what could be a long explanation as to why some of the higher rated school are actually disadvantaged (as compared to smaller colleges like Coppin) an economist would use the most basic concept of scarcity. Schools like Harvard may be huge and be multi-campus, however, the facilities are still too scarce to accommodate, with the highest efficiency possible, the student population, and one may find the dropout and fail rate of such schools amusing. Classrooms are huge and so student-professor interactions are limited, gyms require scheduling in order to find a space, and clubs and organizations are not concentrated and focused. My experience at Coppin so far has shown me that the smaller classroom setting is the better option, in addition to the smaller school population. Because it is small, there is always the ability to upgrade and modernize facilities as necessary without having to consider too much of the large scale expense, so students at Coppin have the most state of the art equipment at their fingertips and in there classrooms. There is also greater access to the school's resources, both human and material. If I were to give my own subjective opinion at this point, I'd say that students at Coppin and other small colleges have a greater chance of gaining a worthwhile and beneficial experience.

My review will be short as I have only been able to explore the girls' volleyball team thus far. This team is amazing, having qualified for eastern conference and placing fourth in their most recent tournament, with a team of mainly freshmen. Through them I would say that athletics at the school maintains a high standard of excellence and the school pride boosts that excellence with support from persons, who, in some case, don't even play sports themselves.

I went to a summer program at Coppin State University which was called SASA. The program was great and it was very eye opening. I learned more about the University and the people who attend. The professors that I had were great and they gave me great advice for the fall. I cannot wait to start!
