4 College Sophomore

Academics: It is really good because Eastern Illinois University is known for Education. There are a lot of other people who have the same interests as me, and we have the same classes together. It is nice to work with people and figure out how to overcome the problems that we will both need to figure out when we are teachers. The workload is a good amount, it is mostly just time consuming. The curriculum is a good one, it usually takes four and a half years to finish just to become a teacher.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: They have an honors college, and they also have other activities or groups that work on how to study, help people out with their school work, or a program that focuses in on what you need to work on and how to accomplish your goals.

4 College Junior

Academics: Our program is great because there is a good number of people in it.
