    I came from a private college so everything that I received there I am getting here for half the price! Not only that I am obtaining more information and experiences than I was at my previous college.

    They really do have any kind of service that you might need. Health center, food, care... It's honestly really nice to know they're trying to help.

    Financially, this is a great in-state school. It is attractive and provides more than just a campus for the students. The fact that many instructors are experienced business people makes this a good match for me because I believe they are better suited to prepare me for life AFTER school

    Being out of state I expected the tuition to be over $20,000 a semester but is not! It's a relatively cheap school that gives you a great education.
