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.

Anderson University is a great Christian school for young men and women who are looking to pursue majors in Education, Business, Nursing, Music, or Ministry. Not only are the students welcoming, but the staff is very personable and supportive. I would recommend Anderson University to any and all of my friends who are looking for a school that challenges their students academically as well as spiritually.
Anderson is a really awesome place from what I have seen and experienced during my three day visit. The Christian attitude surrounding all the students and the campus is amazing. I can't wait to arrive and begin learning at this amazing college.
