Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

Allegheny provides a well rounded education of fantastic quality! It organizes internships and hands on experience for people in most all fields, has an exceptionally strong science program for a small liberal arts college, and Allegheny provides a flexibility in curriculum for people interested in various fields. Allegheny also is a college that simply has a faculty that is interested in you and how you are doing, and a student body that is genuinely friendly.

Allegheny will push you to work until not only the professor is satisfied but so is the student. The key to a successful life at Allegheny is to work hard during the week and then go enjoy a full weekend with friends. The opportunities are endless with not only programs on campus, but joint projects with the community, and larger cities to visit nearby.
The Campus is simply beautiful. The thing I love though is definitely how personalized and student centralized they claim everything to be. Just the right word to the right person can make a real change and make your whole experience better from my understanding.
