    Definitely worth so much more than what you're paying. You have to take advantage of the opportunities though.

    Buff State is a great choice for students who want to get their college education and the classes and professors are intuned with how college kids think and interact with the world because they all were college students themselves at one time.

I won't take the school for granted though, it is visually stunning and educationally challenging.
