    This school is a nice place to be. You don't get too much of the go crazy vibe, but it is a great school to attend. You will meet some really genuine people here. The financial aid office tries their best to make attending this private college as affordable as possible.

    It is more expensive than a lot of other school I looked at, but I was able to get some scholarship money to help out.

    As said earlier, I would highly recommend early action and applying for FAFSA as soon as possible. Although private schools can initially be rather pricey, financial aid upon request is easy to get and in the end, costs thousands less than a state school. Also the sooner you apply, the more you are likely to get since financial aid is awarded on a first come first serve basis.
