    SPU is worth every penny. The campus is beautiful and well taken care of. The people and staff are wonderful and helpful. As your classes will be on the smaller side, you're able to actually get to know your professors and vice versa. The food on campus isn't bad, campus is small, but not too small. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes to walk across campus, if that. SPU gets every bang out of our bucks.

    My professors obviously care about me as an individual and want to help me succeed. I know I will be prepared for grad school once I leave here.

    At convocation, our academic dean spoke of the small percentage of people who end up getting a college education, and how we as privileged students should respond. He encouraged us to view our education not as individual gain, but a gift to the world. This reminded me of how I should use the quite large amounts and give back to the world. This school is worth its cost.

    Lost of famous alums, and as a recent graduate, I landed a great job with a start up company! You get to develop great personal relationships with many of the faculty members, and you make friends for life!

    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.
