    Mars Hill is a small private University so its going to be on the expensive side although the college will work with you on financial aid

    Mars Hill is pretty good for their school book prices, and their small classes. This makes one on one learning possible, also their math and writing center.

    I give Mars Hill 5 Stars, as I feel that I am going to get more out of college than I ever imagined. Just touring the grouds back in May, I felt I had to be here to enjoy all this school has to offer. The one thing that impressed me the most is that I was told I will a staff member monitor me throughout the year and help to keep me in a positive direction. It is expensive, but the college works with you and then fafsa helps and now I am still applying for more scholarship to help with the remaining tuition.

    Outdoorsy stuff, like camping and hiking is free and fun! But if you want to go out into asheville it can get pricy. The tuition is high as well, but financial aid is usually pretty helpful.
