  • (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.

In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.45 Average Rating
There is something different about Cameron University that sets it apart from other universities. A lot of students that transfer from CU to OU stated that the professors at CU cared more for their students than did the professors at OU and OSU. I cannot speculate on these statements, but I notice that professors have a very likeable appeal to them here at CU.
Jonathan from Lawton, OK
Great school with eager teachers. The teachers seem compassionate and passionate about what they teach and how they interact with their classes. I am enjoying this venture.
Jamaal from Lawton, OK
The best place to study without been distracted. best place to school and also best place to get to know your lecturer.
Rebecca from Lawton, OK
Big-name campus living in a smaller university environment. Extensive landscaping makes activity walks highly enjoyable. Provides opportunities not easily found elsewhere in between the metropolitan areas of Texas and Oklahoma..
