    The best thing about SFA is the opportunity to receive in state tuition for our of state residence. Upon recieval of a competitive scholarship of $1,000 (which are easy to come by with good grades), you are rewarded in state tuition. Now, because of that, I can stay and possibly do a study abroad!
