4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The ENC campus is located only two miles outside of Boston. Many different restaurants and events are open and take place during the evening and often late into the night. While most students at ENC choose to stay on campus to study during the typical college night life, Boston is a very close and convenient MBTA ride away for those who want to go out and have some fun.

Campus Strictness: The campus has very strict rules on alcohol and drug use. Anyone attending the university, wether of age or not, is not permitted to drink alcohol or use drugs. It is a smoke-free campus. There are strict visiting hours when students of the opposite gender are allowed into the dorms of members of the opposite sex. The campus is a Nazarene (Cristian) based campus, so they follow strictly by the faith and the rules that the Nazarene church has set up to guide everyone into living more holy and fulfilled lives.

Overall Experience: Choosing to attend Eastern Nazarene College was by far the best decision about my college career that I have made. As soon as I stepped foot on campus I felt welcomed and at home. Although it is a small campus, I have found that many different opportunities have come my way that I would not have had at a larger institution. Class sizes usually fall around 20-25 students. Larger classes rarely reach more than 50 students and are often only so full because they are general education courses.

Overall Experience: Before I even attended my first day of classes I had a job on campus. The cafeteria is alway hiring and other job opportunities such as the school mailroom and teacher aid positions often come along as well. Allowing students to work on campus during their time at ENC gives them a feel for what life will be like working after. Opportunities such as being a lab aid for a professor give students extremely good work history to put on their resumes for applying to graduate school.

Off-Campus Housing: Obtaining off-campus housing during undergraduate years at Eastern Nazarene College is extremely difficult. There are certain requirements that must be met before someone is allowed to live off-campus; for example one can either live with a family member in the area, or be over the age of 25 (which most undergraduates aren't). The cost and convince of living on campus make it not worth arguing to try to get permission from the school to live off campus.

Campus Dining: The campus currently has three different dining locations. The maine dining location has been renovated over the summer of 2014. They offer typical menu items that one would expect a cafeteria to have such as a salad bar, sandwich bar, pizza, pasta, meat, ect. The college also has a student favorite that mainly serves coffee and breakfast pastries and is called "Hebrews Cafe" which serves Starbucks items. Also found at ENC is a fastfood dining area called "The Dugout". Students are allotted specific amounts of dining dollars that can be used at their will in either Hebrews Cafe or The Dugout which offers a good break from eating from the unlimited meal plan in the cafeteria.

Facilities: The institution has focused special attention on making top-notch study areas for students. They have individual study rooms that can be reserved for individual and group study sessions. They also enforce quite hours in the dorms so that students can study or sleep without being distracted or kept up. The cafeteria and student center are being kept up to date with renovations that have taken place over the summer of 2014. As a member of the tennis team, I can speak for everyone when saying that the athletic department is one of our best; everyone is extremely friendly and caring. The college has recently converted to using only natural gas for heat and has installed solar panels on several different buildings throughout the campus to provide green energy.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I personally found that finding scholarships for caucasian middle-class females to be extremely difficult. I do not believe that it is a problem that specifically targets Eastern Nazarene College, but rather all colleges and universities in general. It is a rather small school so they give they aid they can afford to make the students happy while still being able to run the institution. The financial aid department is extremely friendly and are always willing to help and answer any questions that are asked.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere at ENC is amazing on campus and off! It is very easy to attend Red Sox, Bruins, and Celtics games. The MBTA makes travel to and from the City extremely convenient without having to worry about parking because the school is only a short walk away from the nearest stop. There are several different assortments of cuisine in the area for students to chose from.

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: While Spange and Willy are pretty great, Monroe has got to go. That place looks ready to collapse the next time the wind picks up a little more than average. It's a gross building that I'm pretty sure isn't even up to code.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There isn't much to do in Quincy, but living 20 minutes from Boston is a plus

4 College Senior

Athletics: The basketball games get the most attention, but it makes sense because there is no football and it's the easiest game to attend.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I may have some problems with ENC, but overall I love the school. It's a beautiful campus with a small amount of people so it's pretty top notch. ENC is a good school.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: ENC does a good job to help those who need financial help

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: ENC doesn't let very many people live off campus, they prefer the big brother approach and like to know whats going on with every student.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: It's a good set up and there is always enough food to choose from, it's just not good quality stuff. It gets the job done though

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus, it's a pretty good set up

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: ENC doesn't have a lot going on so relationships are kind of a big deal. Everybody is always in everyone else's business on who they like or who they've hooked up with. The dating pool at ENC is pretty strange

4 College Senior

Diversity: ENC is very diverse which is pretty awesome

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The school is the worst . Always the same thing .

3 College Sophomore
