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.

I really enjoy visiting Freed-Hardeman. The faculty is very good and will be sure to keep in touch with you! If you ever have questions don't be afraid to e-mail or call your counselor.

There is a solid Christian atmosphere. It’s a good place to grow spiritually because you can have that spiritual support and, at the same time, be challenged on your beliefs. I would highly recommend Freed-Hardeman University.
