3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If you have two parents that make a decent income don't expect aid. Private loans are better than the government loans.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: No greek life at eastern.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Go to uconn, otherwise get ready to network and socialize to find the parties.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Its definitely important if you are female to walk in groups or find a larger male to walk with. Willimantic isn't the safest or nicest town. Non the less, if you look sketchy, the sketchy won't mess with you.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Computer labs are everywhere. Printing on campus cost money, but they give you 15 bucks worth each semester. Trust me you wont ever use more than they give you. Get a laptop, you'll have so much time on your hands. If you're struggling financially. Get a 8gb+ flash drive and just use on campus computers.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The willimantic mist as its usually said, very odd. Cold as all hell in the winter. The normally cancel class with 3+ inches of snow.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Not much to say. It is a liberal arts school, you see just about everything.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Its like any school. It isn't a dry campus like advertised. Just make sure you mature and know what you're doing before making decisions.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Eastern does have a shuttle service, although the app for the phone really is not up to date so sometimes you are struggling to find if its coming or not. I have lived in the furthest dorms in both directions the walk is roughly 10 minutes. Its really not that bad in any weather. I also think its important to keep you in shape if you don't do any physical activity. A bus line does exist to bring you to UCONN and cost roughly $2.50 for one way.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Most professors are really helpful and know the topics they are talking about. Although you do get your occasional teacher who does not care for the students. It is of utmost importance to use ratemyprofessor.com before choosing your classes. It really saved me all throughout college. Most popular study areas at this school is business and teaching. Although as a computer science major, the professors really know the topic.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus Dining is definitely a struggle to get to if you do not have car. In willimantic you have one or two above average restaurants and the rest is just fast food and chain restaurants. Its very hard to find food late at night, most people just order dominoes.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I think college is over priced in general and every struggles to get the money they need, no one is happy.

1 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: We are in one of the worst towns with all the stores are fronts for drugs and halfway houses in front of some of the dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are a d3 school so no one cares about athletics, not even the athletes.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: You're with your group of friends that you made the first week of freshman year and thats pretty much you're social circle all 4 years.

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Everyone drinks on the weekends or they go home. No one is here and sober. its sucks.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am an Economics major, its okay. I would do it again, i guess, but that's just because I already know everything.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: You don't have to do anything, just declare yourself as an econ major

3 College Sophomore

Computers: We don't have wifi in the dorms and technically not allowed to have a router either.. so its pretty bad.

1 College Sophomore

Academics: They promote small cliques of students that go from class to class together. its just like high school!

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I feel as if no one really cares about the diversity, at least not as students.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We do not have any Greek life on my college campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly just dominoes or chinese food. There's a nice brewery but no one goes there, its too expensive for us broke college kids

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Like I said, its a bad section of town. You can walk down the street to house parties but mostly people just get drunk in their dorm room.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We are in a bad section of town so I feel like that influences the atmosphere on campus.
