Warning! Its really expensive, but I wouldn't call it a rip-off. You get so many great things for the price; great food, a huge and quiet library, short commutes to academic and residential areas, lush green scenery, and friendly people. You have to work hard to guarantee your money isn't wasted, but that is essentially what college is about anyway, right?
By the way, when the Hart School of Performance offers concerts, plays, operas, or dance recitals or when there is an athletic event, its free for students. Absolutely free live entertainment!
