    McKendree University is a little bit more expensive than some colleges, but with all that it offers, it's worthwhile.

    Academically, McKendree is an amazing and well rounded education and I love it for that. On the downside, everything here does cost a lot of money, especially the bookstore and our food centers. Free entertainment at the Hett for students. The Suites on campus are the best bang for the buck housing wise (most space for least amount of money; little issues that come with older housing).

    You pay a lot , but you get it all back in free resources (nurse, career advising, tutoring, writing center) and in the value of your degree.
