What was the cost of tuition at Emerson in 1910?
"Believe it or not, as shown in this 1910 viewbook, tuition was $75 per semester. Add to that the $5 diploma and graduation fee, a $2 entrance exam fee, a $2 physical exam fee and a $3 matriculation fee for a grand total of $462 for three years. But that doesn’t include room and board!" (quoted from here.)
How much was room and board back in 1910?
"Room and board cost an additional $150 to $350 per year depending on the dormitory. Add in $15 a year for books and stationary. Grand total: $315 to $515 per year for tuition, room/board, and books." (quoted from here.)
All I can say is---dang.
Pfff, I wish!
"All I can say is---dang."
I second that notion!
The good ole days...
