            Affordable tuition and an education equal to any ivy league school I've ever heard of. The professors and staff will fight for you with genuine vigor. They instill in you a controversial knowledge. Force you to ask questions. Never settle for "learning" alone. They give "understanding, culture, tools" that will last a lifetime.
