    Quaker Steak has nights where they will do $0.60 boneless wings, and other special events throughout every month during the school year. The bookstore will sell special event, or game day t-shirts for 5-10 dollars throughout the year. This is a great way to stock up for Green and White Fridays! The Bookstore also has an awesome Christmas sale every year.

    I consider SRU a bargain school. This is a great quality, D2, out-of-state/in-state school. The price is not too much and out of it you get many free events, great education, great social life, and an overall great experience. I would never pay more for another school. This school is a great price that offers many scholarships, and it is just an overall wonderful school.

    For the amount of tuition SRU does not disappoint for how incredible the campus is. For people who enjoy exercising, to the more laid back stargazers and students who just enjoy playing video games, SRU is the campus for it.
