    Tuition at Shawnee State is relatively low, coming in at just over $10,000 for my first semester including housing, meal plans, and fees, so it's a great value.

    This school is definitely worth the money. Many students cant find schools were they receive a decent education and can stay in a dorm for less that sixteen-thousand a year but at Shawnee State that's their staple.

    The coffee shop is amazing. They have amazing coffee and smoothies! They have little treats you can buy and I hear that they are really good. The book store has very good deals. You can buy hoodies, shirts, and pants. There are very many more things that you can buy in there and for really good deals.

    I am a PSEO student at Shawnee State University, therefore all classes that I take while I am still in high school are free, along with books, tuition, and any other applicable fees. It is nice to get brand new books for every class at no expense to me. Not only that, but I can also resell the books back when I am finished since they are considered my property.
