    I'm dual enrolled, so classes are free to me! From what I've heard, financial aid is pretty good. The education obviously isn't Ivy League quality or anything, but if you choose the right professors, you can learn a lot.

    Places around town are not too pricey! Food, laundrymats, movies, ice cream. Everything is decently priced and affordable for college students.
