    The school isn't on the cheap side. But the finacial aid will help you. Remeber to do finacial aid early.

    The school has many free opportunities on campus. We have a free Wellness Center where you can set up an appointment and receive certain medications for free. They have many free activities throughout the year as well. The dorms are large and the food is great so I think we get a lot for our money here.
