    ESU gave me enough scholarships that I haven't had to pay for college yet. There's always free events and free stuff to do, te education is solid, and it's a great place to be. It's worth every penny, and is one of the cheapest schools in the Midwest. Considering they have such awesome business, education, nursing, theatre, and other programs, it's a great value.

    With Flat rate tuition students can take as many classes as they want for one flat rate. It makes it nice if you take a lot of credit hours.

    Price-wise, no other Kansas school can beat Emporia. You can get a quality education for an affordable price. Emporia may not be the best school ever, but it's still a good deal.
