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.

You shouldn't come here if you are specifically looking for someone to marry or if you enjoy to have a few drinks now and then etc. This is a great school for people who's main focus is to live their lives for God. This has to be your main priority though, and if it is you'll love it here.

At the University of Valley Forge, you'll experience a close-knit, fun Christian environment that focuses on building you up educationally as well as spiritually. There are many opportunities available and resources that can help you develop outside of the classroom in real-world settings, and it is easy to find people with similar interests as you. Student-led clubs are another awesome way to get plugged in and do something you love with people just like you; with a smaller campus setting, it is much easier to make friends that will stick with you.
