3 College Freshman

Academics: ENC appeals to people with narrow-minded backgrounds as well as those with a more broad understanding of the world. Many people are in the lower class or lower middle-class, but they certainly receive an excellent education. The professors are incredible--just look at their profiles on the website; they're intelligent, dedicated, and know what they're doing. Some are even the best in their field. The students learn quickly they can't slack off and also learn that they can't keep their narrow Christian view of the world, if they have one. The school promotes Christianity, but they also promote intellect and critical thinking.

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: It's a Nazarene school. To find nightlife, you have to go off-campus.

3 College Freshman

Computers: For our small number of students, we have a good amount of computers. And we get free printing in the library! The wireless has definitely improved this year, but servers for various things, such as email, Moodle (our Blackboard site), and my.enc tend to go down somewhat frequently, yet it doesn't really cause a huge problem.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It can get kind of cold, but it's not like we have far to walk. The worst is the wind.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are old-ish, but they're perfectly functional. It's a really easy process and obviously they're all close to everything. If you're placed around your friends, it can be a ton of fun--even if you aren't, it's still good.

1 College Freshman

Diversity: People try to tell me ENC is diverse and I just don't see it. Okay, so there are both black and white students and maybe like ten Asians, but...that's about it. Religious diversity (obviously) is almost non-existent other than types of Evangelical Christianity. If you identify with LGBT, please don't come here. I would love to see ENC become more LGBT friendly, but it's against Nazarene beliefs, for reasons with which I disagree. Discrimination definitely will not stand here, but no one is making it easy on any diversity. I come from a very accepting background and this is one of the most frustrating aspects of the campus life I face.

Campus Strictness: Waaayyy too strict. They think (and I guess can) control us. The opposite gender is only allowed in your dorm at certain times (usually two days a week from 6-10, except Young apartments, which are M-F...5-10 or something) and only then can they be in your room with the door open and the lights on--RA's patrol the hallways the whole time. Drinking is not allowed at anytime while enrolled at ENC, with an exception of the summers, per the covenant you sign at the beginning of the year. The punishments are pretty strict, but there is not much drinking/ drug use--certainly not much that is talked about.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Basketball is the biggest sport for sure, but even those games aren't horribly well-attended. I think it gives the campus some kind of school spirit (which severely lacks in almost every other aspect) which is nice. The facilities on campus aren't great, but we get a free membership to the YMCA and shuttles run from campus at pretty convenient times.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: They have a great attitude towards people receiving scholarships and it seems to me that they give fairly generously. I had an issue transferring in where my GPA sunk below the 3.5 mark they had initially offered me and they still gave me the highest aid available for transfer students without concern.

College Freshman

Greek Life: No Greek life is available on campus at Eastern Nazarene College.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Style can be pretty awful. Guys are not that attractive, girls are all over the place. Social life is pretty good because people feel close to each other. However, once you start dating someone, everyone is all up in your business. It's kind of crazy, but easy to laugh off.

2 College Freshman

Majors: It's a small school, so this is to be expected, but not having many focuses in majors is an issue. And double majoring is practically impossible because they're all so different--nothing overlaps except the GE's, which we ALL have to take. The same ones. There's no room for choice in the matter.

5 College Freshman

Majors: ENC has a 94% acceptance rate into Medical School and Veterinary School--I hope to get into vet school and I know that if I can get through this bio program, I am very likely to do so.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There aren't a ton of spots, but there aren't a ton of students. I don't have a car, but it seems that parking is fairly simple when I'm in one. There are a fair amount of spaces out front or along the side streets for people parking without permits.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you like asian food and fast food you are set here.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I wouldn't say its horrible here. It happens everywhere it could be soo much worse.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great if you live in Young outside of that it sucks!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: You have to fight for the aid you want. They have scholarships but you have to ask a lot for them.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Religion is pretty understanding that not everyone is nazarene.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Nothing really makes it stand out from any other school.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Everything is specific to your major I like that!!

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Once youre in a relationship at the Naz you are in a whole different world.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is probably the best part here but only for certain sports which is sad.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Nearby is really nothing unless you go into Boston but other than that Quincy is really weird.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: You can print unlimited amounts and not get charged! Love that
