  • + 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.

Amazing campus and beautiful buildings and people. The students are very diverse and all of them talented. With 40,000 or so students, you are sure to find friends whether you look for them or not.
