    UNK is actually quite affordable. They try to keep prices down and are very generous with scholarships. They also have scholarships for continuing students that are often based on your major.

    For the first two or three weeks they have what we call a blue and gold week where new people from out-of-state and incoming freshmen get to see what Kearney is like and make new friends and get settled down in their new home.

    It's a little pricey but what you learn is defiantly in depth and if you put the work into it you'll learn a lot from professors that engage their students.

    I feel that since many of the professors put so much effort into making the most of their classes and given the relatively low costs of the school you can say you are getting a pretty good bang for your buck. Obviously living on campus is more expensive than living off, room and food fees are higher than those for living off campus, but you are paying for the convenience and community of living off campus and for some people that is worth the extra cost.
