    Well, I have only my own experience to draw on. I started college at a small community college where there was great comraderie amongst the science students. I ended up at a large, well-ranked university where the culture was extremely competitive - almost cut throat, dog-eat-dog. Me, I enjoyed the cooperative culture much better!

    So if the difference between joining and not joining results in a college experience that suits you better, than it might be worth it. I guess that would depend on the culture of the school you're attending.
