Private colleges are flat-out expensive and it is very hard to justify the cost on the basis of what job/career opportunities will be available. If you want to punch the ticket, get the paper on the wall, learn basic job skills, and get a job for the least money spent, don't even think of going to a private liberal arts college like CBU (unless you have wealthy people paying your way). On the other hand, if you are going to college to become a mature, deep thinking, compassionate leader who is driven to make a difference in the world, it is hard to justify going anywhere else. You must ask yourself what "education" means now that you have to pay for it. If education is job training, get it at a state college and don't "judge" yourself for being practical. However, if you want to meet professors who will change your life, take classes that will alter your worldview, roll up your sleeves and work in a foreign country, bond with idealistic friends you will know for the rest of your life, and be prepared for leadership that will absolutely bless the lives of thousands of people, then spend the money and get the education that empowers leaders. I became an Army officer immediately after I graduated (CBU has a good ROTC program), my wife became a very innovative teacher pushing for massive education reform, and our best friend is now close to becoming a General. There is the quest for money, and there is the quest for your life to have meaning and impact. Choose wisely.

If you have any desire to attend grad school in the humanities, I would not recommend CBU. It does not look good on transcripts. On another note, the Philosophy program is excellent and classes are small which allowed for learning that is simply not possible at big universities. The community is great but the school is expensive and finding a job after college is very difficult, leaving you with ridiculous dept.

I came to CBU from a community college after receiving a Cal Grant. Cal grants are based on GPA and student EFC, and are very selective. Cal grants are "use it or lose it" type grants. I couldnt get into any of my schools on such a short notice so CBU it was (reluctant and very apprehensive). I transfered about 30+ units from my CC, however be careful your units apply to your major! Engineering, nursing, and a few select majors have strict guidelines students must adhere to(found out the hard way a month into the civil engineering program). I went to their "step ahead" which is a selling point for some parents/students while older/OPS students it may be considered a waste of time. Here they glossed over my transfer units and generally did not provide a one on one appointment to answer questions you have about your schedule. make sure you get that time with an advisor before classes start! if you're broke (like myself) they do provide great financial aid the first year, subsequently it tapers off and they encourage students to max out loans or get on a payment plan (which i did, reluctantly). so my first semester in the civil engineering program went okay. i passed the intro engineering math w/ a 'C' (egr182) without prior knowledge of trig, calculus or physics(i was in tutoring all the time!) second semester got harder w/ C++(computer programming) the language equivalent for engineers(i had finished span 1 & 2 at a CC, doesnt cover language requirement). this class sucks! do not even take it here! they offer little to no tutoring at the ARC or ASC. take it at a CC! i took it twice, D- one semester and F the next :(. i worked my butt off too. anyways. i could go on about the school, expensiveness, 4:1 girl-guy ratio, lack of diversity(in a lot of areas) BUT... hey I am just one person. in conclusion, i left after 1.5 semesters, i saw my debt piling up and thought to myself... "for the price of this school, there are not adequately trained or many tutors available..." just do yourself a favor before enrolling. get a piece of paper and write down where you're at financially, education, and religious wise etc... ask yourself "do i want to really invest AKA go into debt at THIS school?" here, you're just more money for them to expand their "mission"... be careful. you're a number here too.
