    Its pricey, but if you are staying in the New York area, it has a good reputation especially in accounting/finance.

    Canisius is more expensive than it should be in my opinion, but worth it if you make great use of your time here.

    I play for the college orchestra which puts a little extra money towards tuition. It's a great way to help with finances and keep playing an instrument you enjoy.

    While Canisius sticker price is expensive, they offer a lot of scholarships and financial aid. You can also do work study. The food could be better, the dorms are great, and the teachers are always willing to help. Classes are small and the teachers know your name. You have endless opportunities to get involved on campus.
