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.

LMU is a great university! The campus is beautiful & the professors are very helpful and understanding. It is very diverse; there are people from many places such as England, Scotland, Germany, New Zealand, Greece, Mexico, Russia, Guatemala, Brazil, and Japan.
LMU is an awesome college. I transferred from Roane State Community College in Oak Ridge and LMU is so much better.
Robert from Jellico, TN
Lincoln Memorial has a very beautiful, welcoming campus. Since the campus is not very big, it is easier to interact with students and get to know people on a personal level to develop strong friendships. The staff are friendly and always willing to help you in any way they can.

Kiso from Avondale, AZ
Very small school with a high school type of environment. Small classes and more teacher student interactions that not many other schools can offer. Student body is quite involved in all collegiate athletics
Javier from Fayetteville, NC
Quaint and beautiful campus setting tucked away in the mountains of Tennessee. The people are friendly and the education is of high quality. There are a lot of opportunities to out-reach to the surrounding community.
Lisa from Harrogate, TN
It is a great school with excellent educational opportunities. However the technology is slow and unreliable. Also it is extremely expensive and is located in an area that is low income so they should find ways to lower tuition.
