4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There were so many great experiences when I became a warrior. Whenever I hear that name, I am constantly reminded that growing up and facing these difficult challenges, you don't give up. No matter what, you just have to keep fighting because that's the only way to achieve your goals. One of my favorite experience as a warrior was meeting people. They make you feel like even though they are pursuing different dreams and goals than you are, we are all fighting together to achieve them, whether it's becoming a doctor, lawyer, economist, musician. Another favorite experience of mine, was actually going to different events such as track meets and football games in the fall and spring. They create excitement and that's really when the school comes together and shows their school spirit. What makes my school unique is the learning experience. East Stroudsburg University has some of the most helpful professors. The only thing you would have to do is make yourself available to them. Another thing that makes my school great is its campus size. Personally, I love the fact that it is smaller than most campuses because everything is close by, which is really helpful in the winter. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over because of all the unique experiences. The learning process is there for you to push yourself to a limit where you have to overcome the limits. It makes you think outside the box. When we fight until the end, head strong and giving it all you've got, that's what makes you a warrior.

Overall Experience: Many people like this school, it's not for me though. It's very rural and you need a car to do pretty much anything. Much of the social life revolves around parties and you won't find student that are interested in much besides Athletic Training or Exercise science, as those are the biggest majors at this school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a small campus so everything is close by. It's not far from New York, it's about a 30 minute ride. The students at the university are very welcoming and kind. East Stroudsburg student take very great pride in their school. It does get colder than usually at East Stroudsburg because it's also around the Poconos. Also, the dining hall doesn't have many varieties of food.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
