    This school is extremely expensive and the majority of that money goes into the beautification of the campus I believe. Therefore, as far as "bang for your buck" goes in terms of living well, eating well, and being on a pretty campus is concerned, this is the place for you. As far as enriching experiences and academic opportunity are concerned, you may be able to get better for cheaper somewhere else.

    Definitely on the pricey side because it is a private school, however they offer several scholarship opportunities that can bring down the price significantly for students.
