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.

ECU is a wonderful school. The various academic departments are fully student focused. It is wonderful to be able to have access to, and feel accepted by the professors.
Jackie from Ada, OK
There are fewer than 5,000 students which makes it easier for students to get one-on-one attention or help when you need it. All the buildings are close so you don't have to walk for like twenty minutes to class. There are hundreds of parking spots for students who commute everyday to school.
Madelyn from Ada, OK
It is a extraordinarily welcoming campus, with people who are willing to help new students. The atmosphere is supportive and school spirit is evicent. I rate the school a 10 for how kind and easily accessible the school is.

This college has great professors that are willing to help you whenever you need. The campus is right in the middle of town so your right by other businesses and food places. The classes here are challenging enough to where you feel like your money is not being wasted.
