    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.

    It really depends honestly. Personally I feel like it is way overpriced, because there is so much more you have to pay for in addition. Such as books, laundry, printing, sport teams, greek life, other clubs, etc. But it is a school in progress so maybe that will change. Depending on who you are and what you do, you may find you love it here and this is a great place for you, therefore you are getting the best bang for your buck. If you don't love it, it really isn't worth it.
