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.

Ashleigh-Beth from Urbana, OH
At the present time I will rate my college excellent. I rate my college excellent because they were very thorough and patient with my mom during orientation. In addition, my mom and I were met one on one with the dean.

Defiance is a small town, but you can always find something to do. On campus there is a ton of things to get involved with. Also, most of the students that go here are athletes, so you can always play pick up games.
It is very small but very supportive if you want to succeed. There are tons of opportunities to grow and get hands on experience in your field. There are also tons of service opportunities.
RACHAEL from Berea, OH
Defiance college is a small school that set students on the right path for a career. The small size classes make students gain confidence to ask questions and approach the professors.
