    Good! Have many scholarships and grants. Personalized attention and amenities such as the athletic facilities and tutoring center are worth the price.

    Although UD may seem a bit expensive, I think it's worth it. They usually can find you scholarships! Plus most of the facilities are new, so there is a lot of new equipment. It's a small campus so it doesn't take very long to get to class; great for winter!

    It gives out quite a bit of aide. Most students aren't paying much. However if you're not poor you don't get very many scholarship opportunities.
