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.

Most teachers are dedicated and caring. Class times and lengths are perfect for learning. Parking is inadequate.
Victoria from Hammond, LA
I like Southeastern a lot, it has many benefits. One benefit is the school is smaller and very homey feeling. Another benefit is that the school always has something going on, or something to do. It is a very nice school and I love going there.

I love being a Southeastern Lion! I transferred here from Kansas and it was the best decision I made for myself. My classes are small and my instructors are caring and really motivate me to learn new things. There are so many opportunities to learn outside the classroom that really making learning exciting.

Everyone is very friendly. It doesn't matter if they are an instructor, student, someone in dining service, or anyone else who works there. One of my teachers took out his time to hold late night study sessions to prepare students for our difficult math tests that are taken on mymathlab.com and the study sessions WORKED.
