    I would say that you pay for what you get. Remember you are paying for an education first and foremost. The professors love their jobs and it really does show. The campus is beautiful and well taken care of too. The buildings are old, but our dorms and buildings are very nice and well taken care of.

    The college is very expensive but it is a small college and has the community feel, ultimately it is up to you and how hard you work to say if it is worth the money.

    They give out a lot of scholarships and offer so many things that are free! For example, we have a free wellness center, 250 free red bikes that are loaned out in the Fall and spring term, a free shuttle going to many different places, D Term classes and opportunities, many opportunities for free meals. The study abroad program is amazing also, they make it so it costs the same as it would to attend North Central.
