    Mercyhurst is pretty pricey but they do give out a lot of aid. It is a decent school that gives opportunities that make it worth the cost. Experience is far more valuable than a traditional approach of education.

    It is a private liberal arts school, but the caliber of the teachers is exceptional and the ability to develop relationships with accessible professors is invaluable.

    The sporting events are free, the spring fest concert is free, freshman meal plan is unlimited, the dorms are extremely nice. Campus is beautiful and perfect size for walking distance.

    Mercyhurst is pricey but they offer a wide variety of scholarships and financial aid. It's definitely in the end worth it for the education you receive, the nice living arrangements, and the friends/connections you will make at Mercyhurst.
