    This is a great school to go to before grad school because you will absolutely form lasting relationships with your professors that often develop into mentorships. The small class sizes really help you delve into topics because asking a question in front of 12 people isn't as scary as asking a question in front of 300 people.

    There are so many grants and scholarships available for incoming students and more possibilities as your stay extends. The tuition is honestly worth it. There's a Writing Center to help you during your writing process for almost every major available, there's also math tutors and science tutors, too. And because your professors care so much about your success, the teacher-student wall in classrooms break. The class sizes are intimate and I think that honestly helps with the new requirements for college classes. Plus! the people are so nice and the campus is so beautiful! You won't regret it!

    UP is a pricey school and tuition does raise every year. That being said, it also offers financial aid to 95% of the students. I am luckily one of those students and if it wasn't for the financial aid I know I, along with many of my friends, would not be able to attend this school. Nonetheless, I do think it is worth it. I love the faculty here and they really care about you. I also do think I am learning a lot both academically and personally.

    At almost $50,000, UP is good, but not great. They give out great scholarships to those who deserve and need them. However, for more than $7,000 less, I will get the same treatment and schooling at a university closer to home.
