    The tuition is well over twice the state average and the facilities do not reflect that. We have almost nothing but old-fashioned chalkboards, classrooms, and cushions. The faculty are not paid well either. It's a constant mystery where my money goes-- probably into advertising for the school.

    If you're going to be counting money into the equation, it's not worth the cash. For a private institution, we should at least have things like a gym and a food court, and some of the buildings are ancient and have no air conditioning. It's really quite terrible.

    I love to dance, tell stories trough poetry, and connect with people that have no idea about me. I love tobring people together, regarrdless of looks, race, sexual orientation and age.

    I won't lie, Naropa is expensive. But so are most private colleges. The total cost is around $38,000 per year. But on the other hand, Naropa was generous in the grant they gave me, and along with scholarships it's not as bad. The atmosphere here makes up for the money, and even though I'm taking out a lot in loans, I would rather be here than any other college. The school is great, the city is great, and it's all worth the extra money that I don't have.
