  • (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.

It's amazing! The small campus makes for great community and the professors are very accessible. One of my favorite parts is the shuttle system that allows travel between all 4 campuses, so you're never stuck on west.
