4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have loved being here so far. I like my professors, I like that I am actually learning. I love my schedule, and I feel the coursework is appropriate for my level of education. I like that classes are smaller and even if a professor doesn't know my name at least they know my face.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many health resources to choose from and it is a very safe campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love where I stay, and how easy it is to get to all my classes. The people in my hall are friendly. Room and board takes up the bulk of my tuition and fees so I'm not too keen on that. The food is much better than I expected it to be.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I love the school spirit.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In all my classes I have been taught by the professors themselves and not by teaching assistants. It's very easy to get around campus. Everyone is friendly. There are many resources to use, academic and otherwise. The campus is safe and it is a good study environment.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have loved the college experience. The small class sizes and the fact that it is in a small town has made the experience very personal.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: In this area, I believe that a degree from Eastern is valuable; however, I do not know how useful it is in other parts of the country.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in an all girls dorm. I absolutely loved the experience. I made super great friends while living on campus. There was plenty of space in the room for my roommate and I to live comfortably in. The only complaint I have is that they are so expensive, but I think that that is an issue seen at most other schools.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not a member of Greek life, so I cannot say for sure what it is like. From what I have seen, Greeks really enjoy it. Greek life has a pretty big presence, it is easy to see the members around campus. Most Greeks I have met are friendly and seem genuine. Each fraternity and sorority on campus has its own house; however, the rooms are considerably smaller than the dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Really the only athletic events that there are big turnouts for are football games. All other sports have much fewer attendees. However, there is not a lack of school spirit. You can feel the school spirit and loyalty even at events that are not related to athletics. Students are very involved in volunteer activities and other extra-curricular activities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For the most part, I have had a great experience with my teachers. The class sizes are generally small, so most of the time it is the actual professors teaching the courses in classes of about 20 students. The largest class size I have experienced was 60 students, but the professors still taught the course. For the most part, the professors have been very concerned about student success, and have been very understanding and accommodating to personal conflicts.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: They are several organizations and representations of minorities in campus. I would say everyone is fairly accepting.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had great professors who care about their students and are passionate about what they are teaching. But I have also had professors who don't care because they get paid regardless of the success of their students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am an education major and my school is known as a great school for students who are considering becoming a teacher after they graduate

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: It isn't terrible, however there have been shootings and assaults around the campus, which makes people on edge a little

2 College Junior

Greek Life: I, personally, don't have anything against the Greeks at my school. However, I have heard others complain about them and how all they do is party. I have had to sit next to someone who was a part of a frat on campus and he came to class smelling of alcohol and smoke every day and it was disgusting

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some classrooms can be a bit small, but their are various courses that can be taken with better classrooms.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: They help find better ways for us to graduate early and make sure we are taking the right courses

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I haven't heard of anything really happening on campus dealing with sexual assault
