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.

The campus is beautiful, it's not too big, but not too small either, just the perfect size. If you are looking for a great education program than Oneonta is the place. The professors are always there to help you out and overall, all the students are very friendly and helpful.
I love Oneonta and recommend it to anyone who wants a medium-sized school. It has many options for studies as well as extra-curricular activities. The campus is very pretty.
