    Some classes like German class is great and really worth it since you only buy one book, which comes with a lab-book and workbook, and you use the books for all four classes no extra expenses. Also with every great class there are terrible ones, such as a weekend classes where you only met four times and have to buy an expensive book witch you will never use again.

The flexibility of the class scheduling and the approachability of the professors combined with fairly rigorous academic standards and expectations makes this well worth the price of tuition.
