    I consider SRU a bargain school. This is a great quality, D2, out-of-state/in-state school. The price is not too much and out of it you get many free events, great education, great social life, and an overall great experience. I would never pay more for another school. This school is a great price that offers many scholarships, and it is just an overall wonderful school.

    For the amount of tuition SRU does not disappoint for how incredible the campus is. For people who enjoy exercising, to the more laid back stargazers and students who just enjoy playing video games, SRU is the campus for it.

    SRU is one of the cheaper schools in the state of Pennsylvania, but that doesn't mean that they don't have as much to offer. I'm glad I chose SRU because we are not spending as much money, yet I'm still getting a top of the line college education.
