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.

Hendrix College has allowed me to challenge myself academically and athletically while providing an engaging atmosphere for anyone. It has everything one looks for in a college, and the smaller population of students allows advisors to create personal relationships with every student on campus, which shows that Hendrix is always willing to help their students at any time. I have come to find that Hendrix is full of encouraging and helpful teachers and staff that always take the time to help students out and push them to a brighter future.

Hendrix students, faculty, and support staff share a vibrant community spirit. People are friendly, energetic, and curious about the world. It's a fun place to learn.
Very professional in their recruiting of high academic students.
Constantly showed that they cared about the perspective student and the process of choosing the right college or university. Always informative on topics to help students know what the college was about and the Hendrix Experience puts everything into perspective.
