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.

Point is a safe environment because it's such a small and quiet town, that whomever goes there, will feel secured . It is also very friend and can really pull in people into clubs to make them feel welcome. Lastly, UWSP is a college that really wants their students to do well academically but also in their future when they graduate from there.

The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is a great college to attend if you prefer a generally smaller sized campus. Class sizes tend to be smaller as a result which I find very beneficial. Additionally most professors are welcome to questions and will often meet outside of class to help when asked.
