3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The college does not offer a lot of opportunities, however, neither does the town it is in.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The class sizes are small, making it easy for your teacher to connect with you personally. The work is not the hardest, but it is worth it.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: We have a great location.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: We have a small student center and the only thing in the student center for entertainment is a television. our library is good. Recently, we have started doing campus activities which helps our campus grow. We are located in a great area however, we could use picnic tables, benches, and walking trails on our campus for students to be more comfortable.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I feel it is poor to fair. We don't do any career fairs, we do not have an alumni network that I am aware of and job prospects are low because we don't offer a lot other than courses.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall our instructors are great! We have small class sizes so this makes it more convenient for the instructors to spend more time with us should we need assistance. The courses are great and our instructors go out of their way to make sure students have the resources to succeed. Every class room has Smartboards. The instructors use a variety of resources to make sure the students have an understanding of the courses.

Online Courses: I prefer the face-to-face classes because I am a visual learner. I have only taken one online class and I did not care for it because the instructor never posted information when it was supposed to be available. Our assignments were not graded until our semester had ended so I never knew how I was progressing in the class. I had a hard time getting responses to my emails. The instructor never responded in our discussion boards. When the class was over I felt I had taught myself rather than the instructor teaching the course. Without the peer-to-peer interaction, I would not have done well in this class. The registration process for enrolling in an online class was easy. The worst problem was the professor/student relationship. The professor did not put any effort into the course.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Our student body is a mixture of Blacks, Native Americans, Whites, and Asians. Overall, everyone gets along with one another and accepts the diversity on our campus. I find that most diversities whether, political, religious, economic, etc. are accepted because we are a small community.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am seeking a General Studies degree. The greatest difficulty I have found is having to juggle a workload of working 40 hours, caring for a family and trying to keep up with homework assignments, and studying for my classes. I chose to get a General Studies degree because I found that most of my credits would transfer with a General Studies degree. If I chose a specific degree, I would lose credits from a college I attended in 1980. Our facility is a small with limited resources but with determination anyone can succeed when they apply themselves.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: We are a small branch campus so there are limitations in what is offered. Most courses are ELED or EICD, Nursing, Psychology, Sociology or Criminal Justice courses. Some Business & Accounting courses are offered. The campus is small so many of the classes are online. Many of the instructors live in the community so most of them know the students and are willing to help students get greater understanding of their courses. Registration is pretty simple if students are prepared and keep their transcripts updated, etc.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have had a great experience attending college on our campus. My instructors are very flexible with my classes/curriculum. There has been great ease in transferring credits. Most instructors will work with students on our campus if the students put forth their own effort and show they are willing to do their best.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I feel there needs to be more financial aid given to non-traditional students that helps cover fees and tuition. Most scholarships are for high school students or students that are between ages of 18-26 years of age. Many families have to have both parents working in order to survive in a world with a tough economy as it is in today's world. Students think so often when they get a tuition waiver that the waiver will pay for everything; however, the fees are not covered in the tuition waiver. College fees can be anywhere from $100 to $500+ depending on how many credits they are enrolled in. Most non-traditional students are barely making it financially. When these students decide to go back to school to get a degree they find out it is not affordable for them so often times they are discouraged and do not pursue a degree to better themselves. They pay for their education by credit cards which continues to keep them in the financial cycle of not being able to pay their bills each month. The middle class so often make a little too much to get any aid but not enough to pay for college. We have a great branch campus and most students are non-traditional. We have very good instructors that take time to help students if they are struggling. I would like to see more grants given to non-traditional students that are between the ages of 40-60 that also help cover some of these costly fees as well as tuition. There should also be stipulations on the financial aid/grants. The funds should go to the college/universities and not to the students themselves. Many students stay enrolled until they get their financial aid but as soon as the check arrives they drop out of classes and never pay for the classes. They should have to pay for the classes if they do not stay enrolled. It seems unfair that students that take their education serious can't get any financial aid and the people who get financial aid do not care about their education. This needs to be changed.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I rather be in class, but I work better in a classroom environment with an instructor.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: They don't know much about the career path I am taking, but they have helped point me in the right direction to a school that does.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: So far I haven't had any complications with the school. They try to stay on task with every student.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: We don't have athletic centers. The librarians are very helpful. There isn't much campus activity. We just go to class, do our work, and carry own with our life outside of school.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Most people at Eastern have been out of high school for awhile and have children. The adults that are older seem to help the students that are coming straight from high school as much as they can. Most people around this area are Christians.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am only a freshman at Eastern. I am only studying my basics for animal science while I'm here. They are very helpful and if they see you trying hard and know you really want it, they will do all they can to make sure you pass. I am attending Eastern at the McCurtain County campus. We are a small county in the country area, so the school is rather small. This helps a lot because the professors have more time for each student and tend to help more.
