    Briar Cliff seems pretty expensive at times but there are many scholarships available to help make it afford able. You get an iPad, access to computer labs and paper and comfortable heating and water and cleaning services in the halls.

    the price to attend should be lowered, but the overall experience of bcu is awesome. you meet so many people and have great times and i definitely recommend it for a student who wants to get away from home.
