  • + 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.

What Students Are Saying

3.25 Average Rating
langston university is an excellent school for students who aren't exposed to their african american culture. it's a smaller school, which allows students to feel more connected to their professors and peers. really great institution for students who want to branch out into community service, and doing things for others.
