    College is too expensive everywhere. Full stop. We pay the regents too much, we pay our chancellors too much. That being said, these are the only reasons I am giving 3 stars because there are so so so many on campus resources and activities that are covered by your tuition.

    It's very expensive (given that it is a university), but you get your moneys worth. The professors and students all care so much about education that it's a completely different environment from what most people are used to. Additionally, they provide so many resources in different areas (health, tutoring, jobs and internships, academics, social) that you can immediately see the money you're paying get put to good use.
