    Herd Otis is pretty pricey, but completely worth it. FAFSA, scholarships and grants will help.

    Most things in the cafeteria are over-priced but I often get a cup of rice which has carrots, peas, and other veggies in it with salsa on top for only $2.00. The best deal on campus. Also sometimes art supply stores come set up and sell discounted merchandise to the students, occasionally even giving things away for free.

    Very pricey, so make sure you have means of some financial aid. The price to pay is worth it in the end though.
