  • (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.

Aurora seems to be a small and quiet campus. It has nice dorms and reasonable sizes. The one professor I talked to was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the school and her area of Psychology.
Taniyah from Chicago, IL
The school is a pretty diverse environment. It's definitely a liking school. It's a good size for those who are comfortable with a large crowd.
