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.

Professors at Cabrini College do everything they can to help students succeed. There are plenty of resources, such as the library, writing center, and math resource center, available to students all the time. The campus is fairly small so students don't have a long walk from class to class.
Crystal from Newark, DE
I intend to be a student living off campus. The school is a catholic school and that suits me perfectly because, I am very religious and put the spiritual world high on my list of honors with gods and goddesses in mind. I think my priorities are in order at Cabrini and the education there, I have heard, is only a definite plus especially with military in mind.
Derrick from Philadelphia, PA
Cabrini College is a beautiful college with a lot of opportunities.
Current Student at Cabrini College
Cabrini College is truly an amazing college; it allows students to discover a broad spectrum of disciplines while staying true to the college's main theme: Social Justice. From the professors to the staff to the students, I have never been displeased with anyone on Cabrini's campus. An amazing school, it is worth looking into.

If you are looking for a small, close knit school Cabrini is perfect. It is close to the city with the security of the suburbs. With the connections that I make here, I know that I will be successful in life.
