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.

Babson College is a small business school in the suburbs of Boston. Its entrepreneurship program has been rated #1 in the country for something like 18 years in a row, and it was recently rated #1 for business overall in Money Magazine, so it is very much up-and-coming. The best part about Babson, in my opinion, is the energy of the campus--everyone is always doing something, and there is always tons going on.
