    It looks like you definitely get your money's worth at this school. However, if you're only planning on doing general education I suggest going to a two year college and transferring in.

    I'm an out of state student. UW-Whitewater gives me a higher quality academics, more meal options, and lots of student bonuses when it comes to events for less than it would cost me to attend a four year school in my home state.
