    Syracuse provides great learning experiences. They also really work with your financial situation to provide scholarships and aid for students to attend.

    SU is expensive, there's no doubt about that. But, I enrolled at SU knowing I would have loans to repay, and so far, I've been very happy at SU. The people are fantastic and the course are constantly teaching me new things. Going into a animation as a career, I find the staff try to provide an accurate picture of how the field will be when I leave. The opportunities to learn have been invaluable.
