No student sections at any event! This leads to very little student involvement. Also the gym hours are sporadic and suck, the teams frequently use the weight room which is tiny. They drive all the students out of the gym, and many like me are forced to pay for anytime fitness because of the limited hours and equipment.

Religion Is Poop. If you're a religious person with standars and morals, don't come here. There's nothing to do here but drink and smoke (marijuana) like every day of the week. The same house partied get old and busted every time! And be prepared to be pressured and made fun of.
As for diversity we have a lot of Hawaiin people, but it's mostly white.
As for the white people, they are hicks, with no culture other than their own. If you dress weird, are gay, religious, or any extreme form, don't come here. It's full of cowboys and Hawaiins.

The majority of students at EOU are from out of town, and therefore are actually quite diverse! There are many international students. I would say that overall, the students are quite attractive, and that the level of educational commitment is higher than the rate of people interested in partying.
