    WSU is the best college in the area for the price! It has all the fun of a big college, with the perks of a small community college. Many clubs and other involvement opportunities, and small class sizes and a small cost!

    Very good price for college, especially if you go undecided or just want to get your general education courses out of the way. They offer lots of scholarships as well, so you won't be stressed with a huge tuition bill.
