    The dorms should be nicer, and there should be more options for food, other than that the college is beautiful and amazing for a private liberal art college.

    I wish more merit aid was given because a lot of students, including myself can not afford to pay a good chunk of change out of pocket a month. If you do well in school, you have greater chances of getting a better scholarship. Other than that the fin aid of is more than accommodating to help you whether it be searching for scholarships or even filling out a loan.

    Since Cedar Crest College is a private school, it is a little pricey; however, there are so many ways to get scholarships and provide financial aid. And they do not give it to just one student, if you sign up and work hard on whatever the scholarship is you will most likely get it. Also, if you have good grades in high school, you can get a merit scholarship that cuts your tuition in half! Plus if you sign up for scholarships you should not have a problem. For instance, Cedar Crest tuition is about $36,000. However, I signed up for multiple scholarships and only pay around $1,200 a month! There are ways to alleviate financial issues; you just have to look for them.

    I wish it could be more affordable, but all in all this is a private school and you do get what you paid for.
