    Definitely expensive, but so very worth it! I was blessed to receive a large scholarship from the college, enabling me to attend.

    HBU is super over-priced. The business department is understaffed and seemingly underpaid because we don't have much in the area of business clubs, scholarship opportunities, study abroad, road trips, on-campus events, etc. It's not much different in the other departments. I made the most out of what HBU has, getting some very good internships and getting relatively involved on campus. But if you aren't proactively seeking opportunities, you'll find yourself spending $20K+ a semester to sit in old buildings and listen to professors...and that's it.

    private school tuition is always going to be expensive and HBU tries to help with scholarships and financial aid. There are opportunities on campus to make some money too (like the rec team).

    If you get involved and try to pass your classes you will get your moneys worth out of HBU.
