Sorry to write a cliché post, but here goes. I'm very interested in particle physics, I'm going to be a sophomore at a small university this coming fall. I wanted to know a couple things: 1. Is there any good particle physics books I could buy/get at a library to start self studying? I have Griffith's Introduction to Elementary Particle Physics which is really good so far. My school doesn't really offer anything what-so-ever on particle physics, which leads me to another point... 2. Should I transfer to a bigger university with the classes I want to take? My school offers basic courses for the standard branches of physics, but really nothing beyond that. I looked at the other university's course catalog today and saw Advanced QM, Advanced E&M, Intro to Particle Physics, Advanced Particle Physics, Theoretical/Experimental Particle Physics, etc. which all looked like classes which I'd really want to take and would drastically help my future. Thanks for the advice!
