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.

Doane is a very down to earth, liberal college that makes it a priority to get every student involved. The students and faculty at Doane want to know each other; they practically beg for your acquaintanceship. Doane is like a family away from your family, and you won't want to leave.
The learning environment is wonderful. The classes are small enough to get one on one time with teachers. Most of the teachers try to make you and others better and try to help you succeed. Its a wonderful school!

A perfect fit for people who want to know a little bit about everything, and a whole lot about your major. A small, beautiful campus, it is the perfect college for the ultimate college experience. Doane is all about getting their students involved in many things, and the students absolutely love every minute of it.

To sum up Doane College in three sentences, you only need one word: Community. It is pretty obvious when you visit Doane, that the small student population gives you a sense of home that larger universities can't offer you. From the beautiful campus scenery, the small class sizes, and great people I met on my tour that Doane was the right choice for someone coming from out of state like myself.
