Buena Vista University is expensive if you don't know what you're doing. But for the student who knows what they want to study, it is very easy to find your course and lay down all the right foundations while at BVU.

The family feel and excellent education at Buena Vista University makes BVU 9 out of 10 in my book. It is by far a top of the line university.
