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.

Mount Aloysius College is a school founded upon core values; mercy, service, justice, and hospitality. With such a small campus, the professors and staff are able to work with students to enhance their learning process. It is through their job enhancing my leadership skills that I would want to rate this college as one of the best!

Mount Aloysius college has a beautiful campus. The instructors actually care about you and help you through the course. Also, the classes are small enough for the instructor to get to know you and take time to help in class.
