3 College Junior

Overall Experience: most of the professors at the campus are there to help the students and the teaching experience is alright

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They're not snobby people as I have thought in the past. I'm not a part of a Greek club or anything, but the ones that I have met, and that's a lot of them, are really nice and they fund raise all the time for the school and have a good attitude about doing it.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I lived slightly off campus in the university apartments and loved it.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: I enjoyed my nights out and I also enjoyed my relaxing weekends at home.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of chains, I haven't been there in a while, so maybe things have changed, but definitely a lot of fast food.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: I am not going to lie, I actually loved all of the food choices that they had to offer. Even if there was something I didn't like there were too many options that I could always find something

3 College Senior

Scholarships: The reason I haven't always has the best experience was because I was pretty much on my own. My parents had no idea what to do and were not much help.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I had the luxury of experiencing both campuses that East Stroudsburg University has to offer. The main campus is where I first went on my own. I really enjoyed the atmosphere there. I lived in the University Apartments as a transfer student which I loved because we has our own kitchen which made like a lot easier. Everything on campus was located at a good spot and not too far to walk which was nice, especially as a girl walking by yourself. I also felt as if it was a lot smaller than it really was because you really get the chance to know a lot of people which was great.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are not many options to eat off-campus, and if you do not have a car on campus it is difficult to get to off-campus food options. The only places that students are able to walk to are Burger King, the McDonald's in Walmart, Friendly's, and a Chinese place. It is super easy to order food and have it delivered to campus though, so that helps.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: My friends and I have received food countless times that has been either undercooked or overcooked. We have worried about getting sick because the food is not cooked properly, so we would end up either not eating at all or eating cereal for dinner. The same food is served week after week, and it is very easy to get sick of how repetitive it is. The dining hall is consistently overcrowded, and there were many times where my friends and I were not able to find silverware, cups, and plates because they had all been taken. ESU needs another food option on campus, because it is not enough to have only the dining hall and the union.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love the dorm I live in! It's a wonderful place, and has a wonderful atmosphere. I am going to be a resident adviser next year. and I am thrilled because the dorms are so great!

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you want to go out and party, ESU is the college for you. Anyone can go out on any night of the week and find a party. The only problem with this is that if you do not like to party, there's not much to do on the weekends.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Students have been told countless times that ESU is a dry campus, but it is definitely not. Anyone can go out on any night of the week and get drunk or high. It is not difficult to find drugs or alcohol, and my dorm consistently smelled like marijuana this past year. Whenever the police show up at a party it's only to tell the people throwing the party to turn the music down, and as soon as the police leave everyone goes back to partying just like they were before.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid at my school because I was told I would not receive any aid due to my expected family contribution. This made me very angry, because college is super expensive and I am not receiving help from anyone. I will be applying for loans every year I am in college, and will be paying those loans off for years to come.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I really never went out during my freshman year.. I know shocker right? Mostly because I hate being in crowded places and having to pay money to sit around, but when I dropped my roommates off places they seemed to love it.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: since Stroudsburg is such a small town I felt as if we were constantly eating at the same places all the time.

3 College Junior

Administration: Our campus was very strict with almost everything in the above list.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: I really only ate at the union and got wraps and sandwiches. When I ate at the café it was mostly fruits and salads. The food in the café smelled bad and had a bad after taste.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I really did not need finical aid the first semester and when I went to deal with it second semester it went sort of smoothly. It was a hassle to do everything through email.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I really enjoyed living in Linden my second semester of freshman year! The desk workers and RA's were the best. However I really did not like living in Lenape the first semester. The dorms always smelled terrible and the Ra's were not friendly.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Very strict on tiny rules that make a big impact.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: They seem very interested in keeping students here.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's not food that I would normally eat at home but it's good.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I liked my roommate. The building itself is old and certain things take longer to work but the people in this building do care about it and they always try to come up with fun activities for the entire building to join in.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Some prices are extremely high and don't pay for any of the amenities. Some of the best ones of to far from the school so sometimes it's just best to stay on campus.
