It’s not that expensive
Living away from home costs money no matter where you live. A semester abroad is not much more expensive than a semester at a CSU Campus. A semester in Chico would cost about $12,000. Study Abroad fees, courses & housing is about $8,000. Meals, books and incidentals will add a little more and travel costs to Europe are slightly higher than to Chico… But hey, you’re in Europe!
