College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off-campus yet. I have friends that do and they enjoy it, and only few have complained about certain apartment complexes.

Off-Campus Dining: I wish we had some healthier and more popular food places around the area. A smoothie place and a Panera would be a hit in Charleston.

Administration: I wish administration would be more strict with drug usage, however keep in mind, that because one roommate is doing something wrong, do not assume the other roommate is too.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Eastern offers numerous scholarships and they make them easy for students to access and apply. They even provide a scholarship search engine on their website to filter scholarships you're eligible for.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am a bad judgment of character on parties because I do not attend them often. I do know however that they are fun, and usually do not get too out of hand. My friends enjoy going to them and never feel threatened or scared to walk home late at night.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Eastern's dining halls sometimes offer fresh, tasty food, however that is not always. Most of the time the food is chicken tenders, and other fried food, with very limited variety. I have found myself eating food in my dorm more this year because I get tired of the food they offer within a couple months. I feel the quality of the food should improve as well.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love that my college offers diverse housing. They have different style dorms and apartments, there is a dorm for everyone. I did not like the feel of the first place I lived on campus, but once I moved to one that suited me more it was perfect! Everyone has a preference and Eastern's housing is bound to offer something that will meet anyone's needs and requests. They also make changing your housing application simple and quick.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Living on campus is a much better option than off-campus.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. The dorms are convenient and clean. Teachers and staff are great.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus, so I don't know their lifestyle.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the food is fast food, they should really add a different place

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration could try a little bit more on being strict against underage drinking. A lot of people I know are usually drunk or on drugs every night when they come back to the floor.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: There aren't really a lot of scholarships I can apply to with my 2.94 GPA

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Too many people, the music is really dumb, I would prefer better music at parties, like music from the 80s

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food was average, could be more diverse and different

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I liked my dorm and most of the people on my floor. Best are the classes, all teachers are willing to give their time to help. Cost for the college is okay, the only problem is the cost of the laundry machines, very expensive compared to average laundromats.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus Housing is nice. Bathrooms are kept clean and maintained, and there are rules that are enforced which is good for everyone.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Everyone has been very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have had a very good first year experience.
