    Though Hamilton has a steep price tag, I feel that my education has been well worth it. I've not only learned a wealth of information from my professors, but I've honed in on my interview and job search skills through our career center. The connections I've made with my peers have also proven to be invaluable.

    Hamilton College is really expensive and though they have Ivy League funding for the most state of the art facilities, I think they can put a lot more into the dorm rooms and food. Or at least open up the food options for private companies to set up shop! Having said that, the teachers are top notch and the career center make it feel like an investment for my future.

    I am definitely getting my parents' money's worth. Sure, Hamilton is definitely expensive, even with financial aid, but that holds true for almost any college of its caliber. I think that it is definitely worth the price, as I feel that I have learned more in my first semester than I ever could have imagined.
