Great campus. Just big enough for fun but not overwhelming. Love the academics and access to professors. The college is invested in me. Dorms are nice, wide variety of room types and really safe. The food is outstanding and very reasonable for students.

jennifer - 02/20/2022

I have thoroughly enjoyed the coursework and lectures so far. There has been a lot of new material to grasp. This comes easily due to the knowledgable professors I get to work with. I also appreciate, as an online student, how readily available the instructers are.

Harley - 04/26/2019

Eastern is a wonderful campus that welcomes all. The professors are easily accessible and the numerous staff members assist in any way you may need. Along with the friendliness of the faculty, the campus life is truly wonderful with a wholesome student body. Every single one of the current ENMU greyhounds carries such a welcoming light within that makes me feel at home. The food is phenomenal and the housing is incredible. I love it all!!

  14. What are the academics like at your school?

    The academics here range from different ones. I love how some of the professors are really concerned about you, and will email you and talk to you to help you get on track if you need it. My favorite class right now would have to be ED, only because this is like an overview of what is expected to be as an teacher in the USA. This class empowers me to be a better me everyday, and challenges me to step out the box. One thing I like most about this school, concerning the academics is the SI sessions. This is a point of the day, where you have time to get taught by other students who have no troubles in the class you are having trouble in. In going to this, it helps boost up your grade if you are failing.

  15. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    There are a lot of activities going on at ENC. But the ones that I currently stand on are JUMP DRAMA: this is a small theatre group, which has tours around the BOSTON area. They primarly focus on giving plays and smalls skits that are very biblical and christian based. GOSPEL CHOIR: although this is a .5 credit class, this is not just a time where you come and sing gospel songs. But it is a chance for you to have devotion time, with the peers you conversate on a day to day bases, even with peers you don't really talk to. The choir goes on tours. We recently came back from VA/DC which was imply amazaing. We got a chance to not only minister in song, but brighten some ones day and that to me is always a plus. If I can make you happy when you find all reason to be sad then I have done my job as a christian. There are alot more clubs that are very exciting to be apart of and it is a great way for you to become more social.

  16. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    I go to ENC, this is my first year. This school is known for being a christian - based college. Which focus on stregthen your faith, as well as provide you with a good education to succed in life. What I like about this school is, although it is small you get to meet great and exciting new people. As well as learn about who they really are and their cultures. The only thing I would change in my school, would have to be the meal system. It is edible but I feel it can be a little better than what is it. When I express where I go to school people tend to ask where is this school located, but after I give them details they are happy about my choice. While being on campus, besides my dorm room. I love to spend time in the gym, the newly - remolded hall which was recently named "Hebrews" which came straight from the bible. I also love to hang in the Spange parlor, it is a good feeling to be around other people who are trying to become something in life. The adminstration is well structured. For every dorm there is a RA and a RD who are very nice and approachable. There is alot of school pride, when students come together for home sports game. That is the best time to see students, loving the school besides the small clubs that they are on. Overall this is a good school the only thing people would probally complain about is the school being too costly and the food. Other than that, you are expected to have a great time at this school.
