This is the ABSOLUTE WORST school I have EVER attended. I came in as a transfer student, and I was taken as a joke. ECSU forced me to take MULTIPLE classes I had already takeN. I had to fight with the Dean in order to have my previous schools classes and credits be acknowledged. Advisers were COMPLETELY UNWILLING to help me search for classes and prioritize classes. I met with who I THOUGHT was my advisor (according to web) and she had NO IDEA WHO I WAS. This is the WORST excuse of a college ever. I would not recommend this college to my worst enemy. STAY FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL.
The faculty and staff are attentive to students and their issues. They ensure we are put in the best spot to be successful in class as well as in the real world when it becomes time to apply for jobs and start a career. The connections you will make are second to none and it is worth the nearly four years I have attended.
I like being at Eastern, mainly because the campus and class sizes are smaller, which is nice compared to other colleges like UConn. Overall, the college is beautiful and friendly, even if it can be a bit boring when the winter season comes around, only because it can be difficult to get to and from classes and such.
Eastern is a good school depending on what your program is. It is known for education and education students seem to like it. However, I have heard nothing but absolute horrible things about the social work program, so I would recommend going somewhere else for that. The communication department is ok, but definitely could use some better professors in the video production area. English department was really great though, they always have new interesting classes to take every semester!
There are lots of things to do! There are free theatre shows at least twice a semester, multiple free student events every week (like free food, shirts, games, raffles) and lots of trips to NYC and other places.
Also, housing is amazing! Freshman can get their own en-suite bathrooms and a lot of the upperclassmen dorms have singles and kitchens.
Overall, I enjoyed my time at Eastern. I wish that the academics were a little better, but I am still fine with my experience.

As a high school senior I was nurvose to attend college. I was afraid to go far away to school because of the close bond that my family and I share. I now know that being away from home is not as scary as people make it out to be. I would encourage myself to look into further schools down south. I love the warm weather but I was too afraid to pick as school far away. That is my one regret as a highschool senior. I should have went into an indepth search and researched schools that were in a warmer climate. Making friends is easy. All college freshmen are in the same boat as you are. hardly anyone knows people and they are all in a search for friends. I would tell myself that making friends is a fun and easy experience and to never hold back.
Eastern is a good solid state school.
They are interesting, some are driven, but many don't take school as seriously as they should.
The fact that there is not enough information about interships easily available to the students. Not enough activities that prepare the students after they graduate from school. So they can take life by the horns and be able to face anything that come thier way. To give students information regarding options related to money so that they will have multiple streams of income instead of just one. Stuff like that, also life skills such as people related that enchance the persons personality and character. That really grows the individual
A laid-back person who enjoys calm nights with friends. This school is a lot of commuters so I would suggest someone that lives close to the school would be a good candidate.
I wasn't aware of the difficulty that my first classes would bring and wish I had prepared myself more.

It is much smaller and easier to get around than UCONN right down the road.
Students should not attend this school if they like a larger campus that is in a city or resides in a "college-town." Eastern Connecticut State Unviersity (ECSU) is a small, community-based school with has a smaller class size. The surrounding area is not a typical college-town, but has some nice restaurants and businesses. ECSU also has a dry campus, so students looking for alcohol and parties should not attend this school.
I like to brag about the fact that everybody is really close with each other at Eastern. It is a small school and a small campus and while many would consider this a disadvantage, I consider it an advantage because it forces you to meet new people when you first come. Overall, having a small campus is nice because there is less trecking through the snow storms and the rain to get to class.
The most frustrating thing about Eastern is the fact that everybody leaves on the weekends. This hurts the social scene quite a bit. Also, the services offered on campus are not of the best quality.
Everyone at this school is very different, with diverse talents and interests. I have seen the majority of this school as friendly and driven to meet new people and get as involved as possible. The stereotype of diverse students is very accurate!
Overall the school is a great fit for me. It is just the right size of school. Its not to big or to small.
The best thing about the schools it is easy to get around. All the professors are willing to give any ext a help I might need and
they are happy to help. The school is also within minutes of UCONN.
The academics are challenging and fascinating at the same time, I am always eager to learn more when I am in classes here at ECSU. The teachers are always welcoming to questions and comments and always encourage the students to get more involved.
Basketball and volleyball intramural are really popular . M.A.L.E.S, C.S.A, S.G.A, B.S.U and F.E.M.A.L.E.S are popular clubs.
