    I would say the worth is average. I like the campus and they have lots of things to do. Yet, the classes aren't as rigorous and involved as I would like them to be. I don't get challenging assignments or learn many new concepts in class.

    If you are an instate resident its great for the price. But because I'm out of state it is a bit more expensive. I still think it has pretty good bang for its buck though.
