    School here is cheap if you are a Nevada resident and the professors are just as amazing as University professors. While textbooks are expensive no matter where you go, many classes at CSN do not require a book at all and if they do, it is not as much as some University class textbooks.

    There is definitely a bang for your buck. With attending a university one usually pays for the name alone. Attending a college will save at least 80% of overall fees. For example, I took a biology class here and I paid about $223( including the lab fees). That same class for the same amount of time was $487 at a university. Most importantly the classes are much smaller, which equates to a better teaching environment.

    Definitely cost effective. I am a huge advocate of starting at smaller schools because of the high costs of education these days.
