    private school tuition is always going to be expensive and HBU tries to help with scholarships and financial aid. There are opportunities on campus to make some money too (like the rec team).

    If you get involved and try to pass your classes you will get your moneys worth out of HBU.

    Most students at HBU are on some sort of scholarship or receive some sort of academic aid whether it be athletic, academic, or need based. Additionally, once the aid comes through, most students are only looking at a cost of $3,000 to $7,000 out of pocket each semester (not bad compared to sticker price).

Apparently they are making HBU really BIG like half the size of UH and UH is humongous. Well I've seen the the blue prints and how it's going to look, you should Google it, in the future HBU is going to be well-known so better start now!
