  • (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

2.65 Average Rating
This school feels like its own little community, and I absolutely love how welcoming it is. The faculty and staff work hard to not only please the students, but to also create lasting relationships. The friends I have made here within my first year is astounding, and I am so happy that I have chosen to attend this school.
