Great teaching school! They really care about you and want you to be successful. Eastern Illinois University is pretty financially friendly and they help you find scholarships. The campus is easy to get around and everyone there is super friendly and helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the campus and everyone on it. Can't wait till next fall to be apart of campus. Now yes, there are problem's on campus but, most of them are caused by the stupidity of others. Also, what place does not have problem's, nobody can name one place that doesn't have a single problem.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern Illinois University is a close knit community. I absolutely love EIU, and you can tell all the students and staff do as well. The staff in all departments really makes sure the students are striving. There are lots of things to do on and off campus. Academics is the main feature here like it should be and it is the most important thing to everyone here at EIU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern Illinois University is a great school, it is a great small community with great staff on hand always ready to help out. Eastern is a safe environment and we look out for each other here. Eastern has good sports and is D1 so if you wanna play you can walk on if you are really good. The food here is decent they can improve in that area. Academics are great and professors are always willing to help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is by far one of the greatest campuses in Illinois and is the second safest campus in Illinois. Each professor on this campus has 1-14 students in the classroom. And even though this campus is small everyone is always happy here and we welcome everyone here with a smile and to show our pride off.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern is a very good school to attend. The food could be better, but what cafeteria food is ideal? They are all about the students safety, but a lot of crime goes on that isn't told or properly taken care of. As far as education goes, I am glad I chose to be apart of EIU.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I think the thing the University falls short in is the way it handles breaks. Sure you can go home and all, but because some of the dining hall close over breaks, it makes those who have to stay here go to a single hall to have food, making the place very crowded. That is my only real complaint so far, as I am only a freshman after all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I quite enjoy EIU as a current student. The students and faculty are friendly here and alumni of the campus rave about the university. However, there is not a lot to do outside of campus; Charleston can be boring at times and if you need to go somewhere outside of Walmart then you have to drive all the way to Champaign which is about an hour away. The food is pretty good on campus and the scenery is decent but nothing extraordinary.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern Illinois University is honestly the perfect choice to me. From the moment I applied, the university has made my admissions experience THE greatest. I have 12 days until I move onto campus, and I am so excited to know that I already know most of my professors, as well as a grasp on the Registered Student Organizations around campus. I plan to join a few!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I never thought as a transfer that I would be able to call a University my home, but within just a week at EIU I met my group of friends, all of my professors in both the English and Secondary Education departments, and I've participated and joined multiple on campus organizations. Eastern isn't just a school, it's a safe, welcoming, and nurturing environment where you can explore every one of your interests freely. Though the town of Charleston is small and there really isn't much to do other than hiking and on campus activities, the next town over has restaurants, shopping, movies, and farmer's markets. Eastern is worth the trip to see how amazing a campus can be.
