    The school is very good considering it's a state school. So far it seems like a great education for less money than a pricey private school. However, like all schools it seems like you get charged for everything imaginable.

    I believe that this school could manage their money in more frugal ways. They waste money and effort on ideas that do not improve the students' college experiences.

    As someone who is out of state and works on weekends, I feel like I generally get the most out of the school. I'm involved in a few clubs and I take 6 classes. It's not bad for the price.

    Overall, I think this school is a serious bang for your buck. I saved tons of money going here and I think that most importantly, I was able to study abroad, complete a semester long internship in Washington, DC and volunteer while at this school because of all the money I saved. It was well worth it. Also, the professors in my department were extremely helpful with everything and anything I needed. They never hesitated to make an appointment with me, answer any questions I had, or get me the best access to information that I needed for a paper or thought I had. I'm a proud graduate and would do it all over again.
