The cost of living at UWW is pretty ridiculous. First off, you pay outrageous prices for your courses. I only took 6 credits over this past summer and it cost me $2,100. Being a college kid I already do not have money to waste on pointless things. My second pet peeve is dorm life. You pay just about double than if you had your own apartment, and only have a quarter of the space. To top it off they make you purchase a meal plan. This makes life easy, but it definitely burns a huge whole in my wallet. Everything is overpriced at the markets and the food itself is par at best. I do not see why I have to buy dining dollars when I can just buy my own groceries at a local store. If I’m over 18, I should have the right to choose what I want to do. They make it seem like everyone is there to help you, but they really only want your money. After all this and many other taxes are added you come up with a total cost of about $14,000 per year. It only cost $90 per year to attend my high school. How is this even possible? The government should step in and try and reduce costs so Americans can further their education.
