    You're going to get the college experience you've always wanted and the credentials to more-than-likely land you a job. However, a lot of what you get out of it is what you make yourself do. This school won't give you a job with certainty, but with your own effort it will give you with a solid foundation to get there.

    I won't lie and tell you that this University is cheap, but with the multitude of resources they offer, there is definitely a big bang for your buck. Most dorms have special programs for their residents going on all the time, ranging from movie nights, to tutors, to talent shows. There are also many more great resources on campus like the health center and the UMC that always have something to offer.

    Being from Colorado I find myself struggling to fund my career so I don't understand how someone from out of state is capable with how expensive it is. Personally, I feel that out-of-state students are paying a ridiculous amount for what they're getting.

    WAY too expensive. CU hypes itself up to be something its not. They charge an Ivy League price for a high school level education. I am an in state student taking out student loans with no help from my parents. They just pushed tuition up again in order to build a pool. Ridiculous.
