    Pretty good. The most affordable place in the upstate if you want to earn a bachelor's degree.

    Living on campus can be pretty expensive, and the meal plan is definitely not what I thought it would be for the money that was spent on it. Many things could be improved for what students are paying to be able to attend this college.

    It's not overly expensive to go here and they do pay for a lot of events, but it still is a decent amount of money and loans are not very fun.
