I'm like you; I liked the sense of community at my small college.
I once had a prof call me in my dorm room to find out if I was planning to attend class that day, as I was running late. (The class only had four students and we were working on a group project that day.) I had to roll my eyes and tell him that that morning I was just pretending I went to a big university where the professors don't know your home phone number, or even your name.
Eek, I find that kind of creepy! I like being friends with professors, but not if they're going to bug me at home about school stuff. I went to a big school, thankfully, so they didn't have time to track my every movement.
