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.

as i reflect on my first year at quinnipiac, my main thoughts are about the careers in the health field that i have been exposed to. this university is highly ranked for their health sciences programs and i understand why; faculty work strongly with students to enhance their knowledge making, and i have appreciated all the help. all it takes from a student is to reach out to faculty, who are eager to aid in his/hers process of career development. although the student body is not large and is majority females, i've created strong bonds with both faculty and students. for my particular career in the health sciences, i am very passionate about my school.

Quinnipiac University is the best decision I have ever made. The physical therapy program is one of the best in the country. The campus thrives from all the energy of intelligent students.
