    Adams State is fairly affordable, especially if you are from the valley or have scholarships of some kind.

    Lots of wildlife near and around the school. It's not uncommon to see a dozen dear relaxing during the day around the school.

    Yeah, the education is fairly worth it. It's a little more expensive than some schools, but not too bad.

    Seeing that they're raising tuition again, it isn't worth it. The school is broke so tuition will constantly rise. For them to be putting money into a whole new track they could upgrade some different facilities such as the Plachy Fieldhouse, family housing, even some of the academic buildings. It' a SUPER small school. My high school was bigger than this college. My girlfriend is in debt 20K for just 3 years of schooling and I think it isn't even worth it because the school is so small and irrelevant.
