    College is expensive, thats just a fact. If you are commuting, you have a little bit of relief, using a meal plan saves you money, and taking advantage of the scholarships the school offers definitely helps with your tuition. But every dollar is worth being here making something out of yourself and doing it alongside many awesome people you will come to love.

    If you commute, schools cheap and most of the programs are getting better and better, the business program is really building up it's reputation. Southern is a respected nursing school and the program's very competitive. In 2015 we will have a new library and science building, both are going to be huge and contain everything a student could need and more.
