    The tuition rates aren't that bad in my opinion. The older dorms, though, are close the same price as the apartments off-campus, though, and the apartments have more space and better accommodations.

The meal plans seem to be a little overpriced too, unless you get the unlimited meal plan and put it to good use (I had a friend that had unlimited and ate 6 meals a day). But since both the meal plan and the first year dorms are required for first year students (barring certain exceptions), its a necessary evil that isn't too bad.
