College tuition isn't cheap. Even CSU President Dr. Tony Frank knows that. He has teamed up with artist Karina Mullen and the CSU video production department to make a very creative video to explain how a student's tuition dollars are spent at Colorado State University.

Dr. Frank explains how the university balances tuition and state funding to cover the cost of education — and exactly where those tuition dollars go.

Dr. Frank and Karina Mullen, who is also a CSU graduate, explain the costs covered by tuition and fees for Colorado residents, the financial contribution made by the state of Colorado, and the return on investment which the typical student may see. Check out the YouTube video:
