    The classes are very reasonable. The food plan is a little expensive, but then again with the amount I eat it is probably very reasonable. Parking pass is very expensive for 1 semester ($120). Student ID $10 - crazy. Books are the same as anywhere else and that is outrageous. Hard to find used books because there are so many students looking for the same books.
