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.

This school is great for buisness majors, and is held in high regard for that major. It has a strong sense of pride. And it is a gorgeous campus that makes up for the cold weather.

Beautiful private college campus located in a big city that offers opportunities both on and off campus. Small class size so you get a lot of attention from your profs. World class education!
