    CNU doesn't have the financial aid a bigger school like UVa can provide, so you may not get much extra financial aid. It also doesn't have the big D1 sports. But if you are looking for a fun place where you get to know a lot of people including your professors, CNU is excellent. The academics are challenging. I'd give it more stars except all college is too expensive these days.

    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.
