    Would recommend you save your money and take online courses because that's basically what it all is. You can sit in your depressingly overpriced dorm room and work on all your assignments or you could go to the library and pay them for every sheet of paper you print and buy some expensive snacks. The bottom line is this place is set up to drain you of your cash, not give you a real world education.

    I've gone all four semesters debt free. If you are proactive with your FAFSA and stay in contact with financial aid/ stay on top of all opportunities, you will be OK. There are tons of ways to pay for your tuition and if you're willing to work hard and keep your grades up, ETSU will be very rewarding to you.
