    My financial aid covered most everything. After grants and scholarships, it was around 1500 left to pay out of pocket. There are a lot of jobs on and off campus which are both comfortable and fun.

    The in state tuitions isn't too bad, a little high for out of state. Renting isn't too expensive compared to UW, and fairly low cost of living in the Palouse area.

    It really is the college experience. Your residence hall is literally its own community. On campus life is the place to be, I doubt that anyone could ever feel closer connected with their community. The sunsets are amazing ! Also, many on campus jobs will gain you the exact experience you need for hard to get jobs later in life. We are pretty self sufficient as a campus, and there is always a resource for your need out here!

    Pretty good. About $6,000 for tuition if you're from Washington, plus around $1000 for textbooks (I'm not kidding, about $1000) and the education seems pretty good. The recreation trips are really low cost and there is a free WSU carpool for the trips. (I went on one that was rafting with two nights overnight at a lodge and it only cost $35.) Bowling night is free.
