    The college is a private college, so it makes it a little spendier. With that though they are always giving away scholarships that make it all worth while.

    This college cost literally a fourth of my second choice. Tuition hovers around $14,000, but if you have good grades that drops $6000-4000. Housing is a very good deal considering the oil boom and current apartment rates.

    Depends on major and amount of fincial aid. But, it is a really cheap private school. Hope the -50 windchill is worth it.

    I wish I would have done more research when I was considering universities. I do enjoy the campus a lot and the people even more, but I believe I would have succeeded and enjoyed college a little more at a more lively and well-known school. The academics are okay, but you're really paying for the smaller class sizes, the chance at succeeding in an athletic program, and the odds of gaining employment upon graduation.
