    This university is one of the most affordable in the area. I think even the country. You get everything you want in an education, a friendly atmosphere, individual attention, great amenities and services, and a thriving surrounding area all wrapped up in one. The price is just the pretty bow that ties it all together.

    The school is not as expensive as most schools, but it still stinks to have to pay a lot of money for school.
