    Colllege can be rather expensive, and the only hope to really survive through it is with scholarships or saved up money. Tutuion for a year isn't too expensive unlike other schools, you'll also get a free membership to their fitness and wellness facility, which can be of your use if interested.

    Nothing is worth the amount of money this place has cost me. I will be in debt for the rest of my life.
