The price, the personal attention students get. Make sure the college is accredited or your degree will not transfer to another college if you opt to go back to college later.

Another distinction for private colleges (I went to one) is that since they are not funded federally, they can deny you or admit you for whatever reason they want. My college is church affiliated, so they could deny you for your beliefs or give you a scholarship!
You can google the accreditation for a college. I did that when looking for my grad school.

Private - class size is smaller, most professors have masters not Ph.D's but they actually teach the class you will hardly ever get a TA teaching a class. The TA's are mostly in labs to assist not teach. There are few research opportunities. The teacher will actually know your name and know if you go to class. You have less choices of classes and majors and some classes are only offered every other year or every other semester so if you flunk or drop out of one you have to wait a whole year to take it up again or 2 years. I went to private college but those transferring in from a public one always complained how they could never find the actual professor had TA's teaching, nobody knew their name they were just a number... stuff like that.
