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.

Coming to a smaller town from a larger town I just have to say this... Dont expect to have lots of stuff in town to do. Be a good student, study hard, and play hard with your friends. Also go to club meetings or try out for a sports team!
