    Nicholls is one of the cheaper schools in Louisiana. But you really get your money's worth. The classes are wonderful and most of the teachers are willing to help anyone in need. Which to be is the bang for my bucks.

    Nicholls tuition is much lower than other Universities I have researched. Besides Community Colleges, Nicholls is one of the cheapest routes to go. The cafeteria is a bit pricey, but you do get plenty of food. The Union is also a tad pricey, but again, the amount of food you would get is pretty much worth it. The surrounding area restaurants are very reasonable, which makes dining out easy as well. Books can be expensive, but rental and used options, make it cheaper to get your books for school.

    Overall Nicholls is a great school. Its in a quiet area but the school works on giving its students fun activities to joy but in a safe way. I especially love, free Scranton day. People line up for them, especially if you have a exam you forgot about and need to grab one on the go. And there are lots of professors that will leave you in pure awe. Some of these people have affected my life and opened my mind in the greatest of ways and I thank them for that. This is one school that you may not hear about often, but once you leave it, you will not be able to stop talking about it. GO COLONELS!!!
