4 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics at Eastern Illinois University provide great experiences for both athletes and non-athletes. The athletes are able to participate at a level that challenges them. The fans are provided great games and experiences to attend and enjoy.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being that I am an athletic training student I am a little biased towards our athletics program. I "bleed blue" through and through. Our athletes are respectful and down to earth, and Eastern makes a point to try and recruit local talents as often as possible.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: EIU is in a small school conference, the OVC.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics here have had cuts due to the lack of budget

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Male sports were huge on my campus, the basketball games would be packed, football games were also packed. All male sports had a huge turnout and major student participation. Women's sports I cannot say the same for. Less than maybe half the students who would see males play would come see females play. It was a decent turnout, but not as many would show. When our teams would lose, we still would support and come out to games. The rec, made it so everyone could workout, they also had classes, like cycling, zumba, basketball, and etc.
