    I would pay double for getting to live in Athens with all these amazing people. The environment is amazing and the education is challenging.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    ou has been known for their ouguarantee (the tuition is the same throughout all four years and does not increase). from my visit in june, they are not certain they will continue to have it. this may be unappealing for some, but i believe ou tries their best to get people the most bang for their buck.
