  • + 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)

A very small school in southern Indiana where everyone is generally friendly. A very close campus community with plenty to do and a lot of clubs and organizations to choose from. I can not walk across campus without at least one person saying Hi, how are you?

I feel as though Evansville is a home away from home because I feel extremely comfortable there and have made lasting friends.
Evansville has one of the best programs for my field of study and has professors teaching that are still active in the field as well.
Kaitlyn from Bartow, FL
I couldn't have asked for a better school! A small and very beautiful campus that feels like home. The students and staff become a family of love and support through the entire experience, and Harlaxton study abroad program in England is THE BEST!
