    With lower tuition than most private schools (and some other pubic schools), we offer some of the best value. Our facilities are constantly being updated--the newest two buildings both opened in Jan 2017, with plans to tear down and build a new Psych and English building soon. Research is easy to find on campus, and you can get involved with as much, or as little, as you want, with grants available to fund it. Most professors have office hours, and will come in at additional times if you make an appointment. We also have a free tutoring and writing center, as well as a counseling center (mental health) that gives around 5 free sessions per semester.
