    The school is expensive but everyone has a different view on what an education is worth. If you slack off the college is not worth it. If you dedicate yourself to what you want to learn the college is more than worth it.

    SNC is SUPER expensive - prohibitively so, for most people. However, this is relatively balanced out by the massive amounts of financial support the school offers in the form of scholarships. While the price tag itself is insane, most of the people I know are paying little to nothing for their tuition. Think of it like buying a Ferrari at 75% off. It's also a GI Bill-friendly school, so veterans should definitely take a second look. The biggest selling point, however is the exceptionally small class size (8-20 students per class), which some would consider well worth the cost.

    The school is pricey but almost all school trips are at little to no cost the the students above tuition! Trips like... Six Flags, White Water Rafting, and two formal dances a year!
