    Chapman is VERY expensive, but they offer many scholarships. Also, your money is put towards amazing facilities, opportunities, and faculty. You can get what you want out of your tuition. I suggest you take advantage of the services and opportunities provided by the school, in order to get your money's worth.

    A La Minute has relatively cheap yet delicious ice cream. Bruxie has excellent food for decent prices. UPB hosts events like concerts or trips at a discount rate throughout every semester.

    If you get some scholarships, it is definitely worth it. Class sizes are smaller and more personal, and the school is clean and friendly.
