    College is expensive and paying out of pocket makes it clear how expensive college really is. Some of their text books are more expensive then they should be. Renting one used biology book costed almost one hundred and ten dollars.

    i got exactly what i was looking for with my education, and it was cheap as far as colleges go! i took a lot of challenging science classes, and 15 credits every quarter, and my total tuition was only $9,000. small class sizes and personalized instruction also made it very worthwhile.

    I was kind of expecting the quality of education to suffer because SPSCC is just a community college but in my experience it has been excellent. The teachers all knew their subjects and enjoyed teaching it which makes a huge difference in the class room.

    School where ever you go is what you make it. SPS has plenty of events and a ton of things to do take advantage. The school for the most part is cheap and if you have a financial need they have a ton of ways to help. Be sure to ask for help if needed.

    Some of the facilities are worn-out (I'm looking at you, gym and cafeteria), but the overall educational quality is worth the low cost. :-)
