If you are lucky enough to live close enough to commute, yes you get your money's worth! If you have to live on campus..I'm not so sure. If you break it down, you are paying a $1,000+ a month..to share a small space with a stranger..and eat fatty foods. It's around $8,000 a year! I spent $200 this semester at home! So, if you can, try to avoid living on campus...unless you have the money for it. The university is amazing in terms of rigor, so as long as you watch your finances, you should get your investment in your education returned in no time!
