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.

Metro is a school that offers a lot of potential and I have truly enjoyed my experience there. Overall I have had wonderful instructors and now that I am getting closer to earning my degree, I find that I have very knowledgeable professors in my department. I work in the Food Bank under the office of Student Life and have loved being able to work this work-study job, which allows me to do my homework when my work is done for the day.
