    GSW is one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest, four year schools in the state. For that you get solid education and a pretty nice-looking campus, but that's about it. Just be aware of that, that you're not paying for frills.

    I can only really speak to the nursing major and yes, the program is definitely worth the money. Nursing is expensive and GSW is one of the cheaper ones but the experience you gain through GSW's nursing program is excellent and worth the money.
