  • + 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)

In three sentences? Hmmm...This campus has many opportunities. It has a small class size to teacher ratio. The parties are fun. In all, PSU Hazy is a great place.

Beautiful Campus. Great 1 on 1 teachers. Fun campus life.
Britnie from Middletown, NY
Although this campus is smaller than Upark, I would have to say that it offers so much. You feel like a family when your on campus, there are many different people there so you get appreciate the different backgrounds. The teachers are very supportive, but you still get the regular college professors so your not missing out on that. Honestly I could go on forever about this campus, its amazing.
