    Tuition at first can be seen as kind of pricey but they are very generous with scholarships. The university is based on the Lasallian tradition that education should be available for everyone and not just the wealthy so don't let the price tag scare you from applying.

    Christian Brothers is more than willing to award scholarships. Not only that, you recieve an amazing education here worth every penny, not only in the education you recieve but also in the connections and experiences.

    As I said before, CBU is not a good school. On top of the fact that its COMPLETELY pricey unless your ACT score is high enough to get into a better college such as Rhodes or Sewanee.
