    It may seem like you are paying a lot for your college tuition but there is a lot of stuff thats included. For example printing credits. You can print labs and essays for free using your printing credit. Also your meal plan comes with a certain number of vandal dollars that you can use around campus. They can be used in the vandal store, in the food court, and in the grid, which is a little grocery store.

    personally, i feel students within the dorm life do not get a chance to have any "bang for their buck" due to the 200 dollars or more just for a deposit. then an additional 2,000 for a semester to have a meal plan, and as mentioned before the food isn't "real." when i lived in the greek life i felt as if i had more bank for my buck because the house offered a cheaper and more understandable price of 3,300 a semester - including food, socials, free laundry, brotherhoods and many more. recently the campus was saying "all first year students are to live in the dorms first." due to the amount of students realizing "more bang for the buck" is actually in the greek system, not the dorms.

    For majors in STEM and Business, there is no better alternative in the Northwest. Many out-of-state students travel to become Vandals due to quality of education and the opportunity to hold back on student loans. UI's affordability beats out much of the competition. With initial costs like tuition, and room and board already being competitive to other universities in the area, UI also automatically enters students into a registry for hundreds of scholarships each semester. A 3.0 student with decent budgeting skills, and a summer job should have no difficulty making it through a Bachelor's with minimal damage to their wallet.
