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.

What Students Are Saying

4.15 Average Rating
I haven't attended school here yet, I will in about three weeks, but the people are so unbelievably nice. Also, everyone has been so helpful in helping me accomplish everything I need to start school in the fall. It is a smaller campus for being a university, but it still has a lot of degrees to offer as well as opportunities to succeed.
Amanda from Eugene, OR
The four-day orientation we had was a great and welcoming experience that pretty much gave me an idea on how the social part of college would be like. It gave the students a chance to meet and start getting to know each other. Now that classes have started, we all feel better because we had a good start and are more personalized with people and staff.
