    Little more on the expensive side, but they give scholarships and look for other sites to direct you to more scholarships. The education and life experience you gain at SVU is worth it. Look for the scholarships and everything thing else will seem easier. The campus is expanding and they are working on lots of upgrading. If you enjoy being apart of a Knighthood and family it is worth the money. You get to be apart of a growing university.

    It is so worth it to come here not only for a liberal arts education but also for the time of your life. College is fun in general but being able to spend it with best friends that you meet during freshman orientation is the way to do it. I would not pay to go to any other school because no other school is like ours. Going to SVU also gives real world results that will make you so glad that you came here.

    Tuition just went down this year! I feel like I am getting the best bang for my buck with the on campus housing, the food, having our major books included in tuition and being able to pay almost half of what I paid my first year! For the difficulty of the classes, the dorms and the books this school is definitely the best!

    It is rather expensive, but it is definitely worth it! Also, there are many scholarships which the school offers to help students, and over half of the student body uses these to continue coming. I am among them. While the price tag may seem intimidating, it is entirely worth it! Always be on the lookout for scholarships, though.
