  • (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.

What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
this is the perfect school for faithful republicans who want to become more active in politics. there is a large focus on political activity and the development of critical thinkers and active citizens. even the less popular majors are excellently staffed with enthusiastic professors.
