    SU is extremely expensive if you're not there on scholarships. It's a good school with a good reputation, and if daddy is paying then go ahead and spend his money, but if you're paying for your own education in loans I would strongly suggest finding a less expensive school. The name and quality of education are not worth 200,000 in debt, especially if you decide to go to grad school afterwards.

    Since it's a private school it's a bit more expensive than a public university, but I'm absolutely in love with this campus and I know I'm getting an incredible education here so I think that it's worth it. Plenty of scholarship opportunities as well.
