  • (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.

A. from Pittsburg, KS
after my first semester, i can honestly say that i have had some of the best teachers of my life here. there is definitely a lot to get involved in no matter what your interests may be. the dorms are nice, but the requirement to live in them isn't.
