    I've paid for college myself since I started and with a little help from scholarships it is totally manageable.

    I think you definitely get your bang for the buck here. Not only do we have a good mix of a social and academic life, we also have a great small town that is always available to help the school. We have great academics and professors that actually push you to be better than you were instead of getting you to merely pass the class. I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else.

    The tuition at Chico State is relatively reasonable and I feel that the services and education that I am given in return are totally worth it.

    Chico State is one of the cheaper schools to attend. One thing that has been addressed to me is to go and study abroad. Why? Is because most of the places are cheaper than attending Chico State. They really try to get students to go because they get to experience out of the world experiences.

    Considering that it is a CSU, you wont have to pay as much as a private or UC school. Everything around campus is sold with students in mind where you can get discounts with your student ID and even use money on your student ID to buy food at certain locations.
