    Because the the large alumni support at the university financial aid is something the university can give out pretty sparingly and willingly. Campus work studies are also available as well as summer jobs and internships on campus.

    This school is VERY expensive. This is one of the most expensive colleges I've considered, but from what I've heard there are a plethora of scholarships available (merit and need-based) and the financial aid packages are very helpful. The programs and experiences available at this school make the cost worth it, in my honest opinion.

    St. Lawrence is a very expensive school, but they give a great amount of financial aid and scholarships and offer a great amount of opportunities that are not open to people at many other schools. The money is totally worth the experience.

    If you haven't earned a scholarship, SLU is pretty pricey for what it is. Although I have a great time and have learned a lot there, if I didn't have a scholarship, I would never have picked St. Lawrence. However, with a scholarship it's a good deal and definitely worth the price.
