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.

Park University is a very DIVERSE school. It is also very private not cluttered like most of your public schools. The teachers there also give you more attention then any other school I went to.
Chaz from Saint Louis, MO
Park is very easy. Not academically easy, but the atmosphere. The weather's kind of rough, but aside from that it's a good school. It's small, but not too small, it's a beautiful campus, and the teachers can be tough, but most are looking to challenge you but help you at the same time.
Madi from Parkvile
Amazing knowledge of Military Aid and unique needs. Travel abroad department very knowledgeable and always there. Number One thing is the quantity and quality of opportunities to travel and for cultural exchange even on the home campus.
Jessica from KANSAS CITY, MO
If I were to give Park University a grade, I'd give it and A. Coming onto the campus I was told that the University was extremely diverse; I had no idea how diverse untill I stayed on campus! There is constantly a festival being held for a different culture.
Akimmy from Independence, MO
I love attending Park University! The smaller size makes it feel like a close community. All of the professors go out of their way to make your dreams a possibility.
Rachal from Rushville, MO
Park University is a beautiful campus with small classrooms that allow the teaching that students need. The classrooms are high school sized so they allow for a good relationship between professor and student.It's very easy to get around campus.
Very helpful staff that works with you until finances, classes and boarding is accomplished to your liking.
The campus setting is fabulous on a bluff over looking the Missouri River, downtown Kansas City with beautiful historic buildings.
The campus is ready for you from modernized classrooms, nice athletic center, good food, awesome apartment for dorms, and lots of interesting students to meet from various countries.
