    It is a private Catholic college, and as much, is pretty expensive. The financial aid office is amazing at finding ways to keep students in control of their education and making St. Bonaventure a possible option.

    As with any private institution, the tuition for this school is daunting: roughly $40,000 a year. That said, because St. Bonaventure gets so many cash gifts from its alumni, there are a LOT of financial aid options one can apply for and TONS of on- and off-campus employment opportunities.
