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.

Beloit College is small, and does not have the funding of other colleges. Even so, its programs are shaped to encourage students to pursue their passions, and the personalized interaction students get with its talented and enthusiastic teachers give them what they need to meet their goals. It's also a community with a place for everyone, no matter how strange or plain, scientific or artistic, ambitious or laid-back.

as many have said, beloit college is an excellent place to learn. while beloit lacks the "city life", its charm and inner/outer community charm is what draws you in. i ended up leaving beloit for a vacation term to sort out my homesick issues and actually really missed the place. especially post-grad, you don't realize how much a place can positively change you.
