EIU is a great school. Professors are good teachers and provide great help. Not only that, Eastern is resourceful and has great people and organizations to fall back on.

I absolutely love EIU! Making friends is so much easier than I expected. The school size is perfect for people who like small class sizes and also want the same opportunities offered by a large school.

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.
