    I think MSU is really affordable. My tuition for 16 credit hours (in state) is about $2000. Add on another $250-$400 for books. Lots of scholarships you can apply for. Some clubs on campus also have scholarships. The classrooms are nice, and the campus is not that bad looking. They've also got a free tutoring lab in Melton 114 with tutors available for almost any subject. You just walk in and ask if they've got anyone to tutor you in whatever class you need help in and if one is there they will help you.

    This is a very economical college. I am going using my A+ and a scholarship I received, but there are others going here, middle aged people who are taking classes because it is so affordable. You get a lot for your money really!
