    Although the school has good academics, I've found that unless you are getting a big scholarship that it would be much better to go to a state college if saving money is a big concern. I couldn't justify paying two to three times as much for someone who isn't having their school paid for or is given aid.

    Holy Cross is definitely worth the money that one pays to attend the college. They are always finding ways to use our money to good use through the different events and opportunities that they have for students on campus.
