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.

Louisiana College is wonderful. Everyone is like a big family. The campus is beautiful and has a lot of history.
Kaytlin from Vivian, LA
On a Scale of One to ten. I give LC a 7/10. I Love the school because there is always something going on to give students a chance to enjoy college life. LC is currently going through some accreditation issues which are currently being fixed.
