    Don't buy from the bookstore, email your professors before class and find out if you'll actually be needing the book, they harass you about tuition and take away everything slowly like your ability to go to the rec or participate in events so get that paid, it's still expensive even with the payment plan you need a down payment, apply for scholarships, get a job, take advantage of freebies.

    Akron has come a long way in terms of its academic reputation. The School of Business, School of Law, School of Nursing, and School of Engineering are all top notch. It's not the cheapest option you'll come across, but for the quality education you'll receive here, you'll be hard pressed to find a better, more economical option in northeast Ohio.

    College is what you make of it, regardless. As long as Scarborough's administration doesn't mess anything else up, the cost isn't too bad, compared to other schools.
