    This school is offered at a reasonable price for both in-state and out-of-state. The out-of-state is more costly, but I found it to be the same as some other schools' instate, so I do not have complaints there. There is academic support and encouragement of activities.

    Get more ram cash then meal swipes. Besides the nursing program, I am not really sure about how competitive any of the other offered programs are.
