Think many would be surprised at how many colleges/universities at all levels from Ivies on down to busted community colleges use lecture halls.

Reasons are clear and covered in previous posts. One professor or whoever can teach far more students in a lecture hall situation than say a smaller classroom. That's all gravy far as college/university is concerned. They get increased productivity out of teacher/professor/instructor and more tuition paying student butts in seats for less cost.
Oh I didn't mean to say that nursing, etc... didn't use lecture halls.

Note that the US is much more expensive than Europe.


European Countries: A Worthwhile Choice for Affordable College
Despite the high cost of living in some European countries with free universities for international students, the overall cost of studying in these nations is still much lower. As such, a college education in Europe could save American families money, not to mention time, as some programs in the U.K. and Continental Europe award bachelor’s degrees after three years.

The question, however, would be are European college degrees recognized in the U.S.? The answer would be generally yes since there is no single authority to recognize foreign degrees and other qualifications. At most, a European degree may only be an issue for the practice of regulated professions in the U.S. In such a case, individuals must present foreign degrees or other qualifications to their respective regulatory boards. (U.S. Department of Education, 2021)

Ultimately, a college education influences pay and job security. According to Allan Goodman, president and CEO of the Institute of International Education, those attending Europe’s top programs are likely to impress employers. (Haynie, 2015)​ European nations are still the best options for Americans who want to get higher education at a much lower cost.
