    Yes CNU is very expensive, but it is so worth it. I love it here so much, the professors are amazing and the people are so wonderful. The buildings are all so nice and new and everything is well taken care of. So much support is given for students for whatever they need.

    This campus is absolutely beautiful and has everything to offer that you could think of. Yes it may be a bit pricey but you are investing for the future. CNU will leave you ready to take on the world, but only if you get involved and do your personal best. Also it offers many academic support like tutors and the writing center for struggling students. There is also a career center for those who need help finding their way as to what they want to do in the future.

    For the cost of the tuition, it provides so much. It's more than my parents can afford, but with the scholarships, I have managed to make it. I am so glad I did. Will try applying for campus jobs during second semester.

    CNU is a little on the pricey side but everything on campus is brand new and up to date. I have personally lived in two new dorms two years in a row.
