    This school is cheaper than UC schools and some CSU schools. I don't feel like my education is suffering because I'm not going to a UC. I believe I am getting a quality education for a pretty good price.

To each is own, but I love going here knowing I'm going to have very little, if any debt to pay off when I get out of college. For about $6000 a year I get a free gym membership (on campus gym), free basic health benefits (on school medical center), free tutoring, free access to computers and internet, and sometimes free food/drinks!
