Because my school is small, there is a tight community among students.

As the levels of scholarships rise :-) , they only give the higher amounts to incoming students :-( . I guess they've decitded that they already have you, so they don't need to treat you fairly.

My school has a great sense of community not just in student life but with professors and staff as well.
