    All of your classes are taught by PhD professors in very small class sizes. You will get to know your professors very well and they will remember you when it comes time for recommendations.

    The financial aid department will definitely try to link students to sources that may help with scholarship packages. Talk to as many staff as possible on where to find available scholarships and help based on financial need.

    I gave it four stars because it depends on your major. The art department, I've heard, is not very rigorous and is not worth the expense of the university. However, all of the science degrees are renown and it is definitely worth it. The Pre-PT/Pre-OT major, Applied Human Biology, is specifically tailored for physical therapy and occupational therapy grad schools and is the only major like it anywhere.

    Amazing professors who love what they do and are passionate about what they teach. Financial aid is always available if you fill out the FAFSA as completely as possible. SPU understands that it's an expensive tuition, so they help ease that as much as possible. They have fantastic scholarships and grants to ensure that you get a great, quality education for your buck.
