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.

A ten out of ten. There is plenty of diversity as well as clubs and organizations. Ninety percent of the classes do not exceed forty and the professors love to interact with and get to know us by name. Attending the University of Louisiana-Lafayette is the utmost best decision I have and will ever make.
