    Holy Cross is very affordable and the resources provided by Notre Dame really make it a sweet deal. You will have access to all three campus libraries at HC, ND, and SMC as well as fitness centers. Take advantage of the opportunities provided by all three schools to really get your money's worth. Perhaps the best financial benefit is TuitionLock. Holy Cross will lock in your tuition rate from your date of enrollment to graduation and it will not go up. This has been the number 1 money saver for students who stay all 4 years.

    Holy Cross College is on a tuition lock. So, if you attend, you are locked in for all four years. You get that big university feel without the hassle.

    Considering they are a private Catholic college they are probably the most bang for the buck. You get the Catholic liberal arts education for a cheap price, but not only that but you get to enjoy the benefits of the University of Notre Dame right across the street. If you are a fan of college sports you get a discount on a Division I University athletic games. Also some of the games are even free for you. One sport in particular that is free is Notre Dame hockey. They were number one in the nation last year, and being able to go to their games and see them play for no cost at all is a great benefit. Also you get countless other opportunities that you can take advantage of for little or no cost to you. Another interesting detail to mention about the school is that they allow you to take one class for free at one of the surrounding colleges in the area. Saint Marys in particular is just next door and they offer one of the best catholic educations for women in the nation. Plus if your a guy its an all girl school so you can potentially make new friends as well. There is also this thing that the college does called the international experience. It allows a student to go to either Peru, Mexico, India, or Ghana and experience what the Holy Cross experience is like. The cool thing about the trip is that it is included in your tuition so you don't have to worry about additional costs to go. Everyone goes and enjoys it.
