    The tuition is really cheap compared to other schools in the area. (Wilkes, Kings, Misercordia) and you really do learn a lot. The professors care about the students, and are always there to help you. Its a really good bang for the buck.

    I think it is worth the money, since you do get individual attention. If you need help, someone is always there to help.
