    If you are in-state it is a steal, and if you are from New England there are regional tuition majors which I encourage anyone to look into. I myself am studying Ocean Engineering. Even if you are out-of-state they really do try to meet your need. I know I am receiving a quality education.

    I really love the campus because I feel at home there. The teachers are really enthusiastic about their work and are very approachable. I am in one honors class (which I strongly recommend taking) and our class is 20 people. I have become close friends with all of my classmates, and we schedule study parties outside of class. The tuition is expensive for out of state, but they offer a lot of job opportunities and scholarships. It is definitely worth it.
