Looking long term you never know to be honest. It's not just miles, but years.
Normal maintenance items come to mind, brakes, fluid changes, tires, etc...
But coolant system flush, t-case, diffs, those need maint too... Then there's fuel.
With the price of college, all that comes into play. You could sell it and get a fair amount down on a new car that will be more fuel efficient and college material.
Your bio doesn't list where you're at, that becomes a factor too. If you have a 4wd, and it snows a lot, you might be better to keep it. Especially if you are not staying on campus.
If you are staying on campus, and doing typical college stuff, to be honest you might be better off with a corolla.
No matter what, you either have a payment for a new or newish vehicle, new being under warranty and not having to worry about repairs. Or you have an older paid for vehicle, but still a payment as you need to put money in the bank for repairs.
