    Columbus state is the perfect budget option without sacrificing quality. Although there are many instances of professors that make you question how they keep their jobs, there are equally many professors that will help you in any way they can. I've had professors help my for hours after class hours, write recommendation letters for me, and generally be friendly or easily approachable.

    Tuition is cheap for a reason. It is affordable for anyone and is a good place to get an education. FASFA is also helpful with paying for your tuition as well as your books if you are qualified for it.
