3 College Junior

Athletics: Some athletic programs are better than others.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Our school mostly supports our fantastic football team and we are huge fans of Jimmy Garoppolo! We are very proud of his achievements and his help in having a wonderful season at Eastern. It was truly sad to see him leave. We also have support in our Resident hall sports. Stevenson Hall has won the trophy now two years in a row!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It depends on the sport so like for football when it's really nice out and the team has been doing well, a lot of people will come and support them, show their school spirit. But that's about the only sport that gets a great amount of people to come out. Basketball is okay, but not many come and show school spirit, it could be a lot of more people that come to fill up the stands. Soccer, baseball, tennis, and girls sports often don't get a lot of fan support. All the sports has a great performance from time to time.

3 College Senior

Athletics: It is just an average low D-1 AA school with an good football team.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Panther Pride is big on campus. Sports are huge and almost all students attend events. We Bleed Blue!
