    You definitely get your money. There are so many options for students and opportunities like going into the city to watch the Rockettes. It is easy to find internships and jobs because of the career center and help of the faculty on campus.

    A private school education is expensive, but you can't beat the benefits that come along with it.

    Yes it's expensive as sh... But it's honestly a great place to live and work. Buildings and hangout spots are constantly being renovated, clubs get money for stuff all the time, and there's so many connections with NYC it's worth it.
