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.

What Students Are Saying

4.23 Average Rating
The environment is great, with a small classroom atmosphere. Most of the students are very involved and the professors are interested in the success and well-being of the students. Financial aid is given to almost all students, but the school is still expensive and academically challenging.
Kyle from Barnesville, OH
