    Cornerstone (being a private university) is insanely expensive. When you sign up you know what you are getting into, but it often seems over-priced to me... the people make it worthwhile for me!

    There are definitely somethings the school could use my tuition money on more wisely, but overall I believe I'm getting a great education and a lot of experience for the amount of money I'm paying.

    Cornerstone is really expensive. However, its more than just education. They help you grow spiritually to live a more fulfilling, Christ centered life. I don't know where else I would be able to gain that. Also, Cornerstone works hard to help every student succeed. There's always someone there for you, all you have to do is ask! We offer bigger scholarships now to incoming freshman, however there wasn't that many when I first enrolled. Also! Incoming freshman get a free lap top! Mine was a Mac Book Pro which was awesome! Every year it typically changes, but it's always be a really good computer!

    Pretty expensive college, but worth it if you can get financial aid and scholarships. Very caring people there and I'm made some incredible friends.
