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.

Alyssa from BELLE MEAD, NJ
Misericordia is a small school where the people become family. The teachers are very helpful and truly care about your education. Misericordia is not just a school, but a home.
There are many different clubs and activities to be a part of, and there is always something to do around campus. Our class sizes are very small which enables the professors to be able to focus on a small group or an individual. Safety not a problem on campus, because it is a small community and campus can always be found driving around.

Misericordia is a great school to attend. It is small and pretty and has an amazing community of students. The classes are small and the teachers are always more than willing to help their students better themselves.
Misericordia is a small school that is dedicated to the students who attend. Professors care about their students and want to have a good relationship with them. There seems to be many clubs and activities to get involved with.
