Board costs can depend on the numnber of meals you intend to eat on-campus
First-year students are sometimes surprised by how much books and supplies cost–and not in a good way. The real cost of books depends on the courses you take and the textbooks, computer programs, or other materials are required.. To save money, many students choose to use books from the library or buy books from students who have already taken the course.
The majority of colleges charge some yearly fees to offsets cost associated with maintaining facilties, like the library, gym and computer labs.
There may be other costs associated with participating in certain activities, like Greek Life, or playing on an intramural sports team. Many schools have resources for students with financial need to find ways to lower or eliminate these costs.
The cost of getting around in college depends on a few key factors. Will you take a subway, car or an airplane to get to school? Is on-campus parking free, or will you need to budget for parking? Is the campus easy to get around on foot? Do you own a car, or are you planning to use public transportation? All of these questions can drastically impact your transportation budget. Keeping in mind, first-year students are allowed to park a car on campus.
A school's location can also have a big effect on transportation costs. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher. On the other hand transportation in an urban area is usually costly, but cities may offer more trains, busses or affordable flights to actually get to school. Hellenic Collegeis located in a suburban setting in Massachusetts, near Boston.
When you're planning for college, don’t forget to take into account personal expenses, like going out to eat or see shows, furnishing your living space, and things like haircuts, clothes and, yes, even toilet paper and shampoo.
