Anna - 01/12/2024

Although Edinboro University of Pennsylvania has it's faults, it also has a beautiful campus, many caring professors, and a wide range of majors. I am a freshman at Edinboro University and although I have already experienced bullying and a minority faculty not wanting to help, many professors and employees tried their best to help support me and stop the harassment. The best thing about this school are the good teachers and staff who genuinely care. The school has a lot of 'politically correct' people who are not open to conversation and different opinions, which can be hard. The campus seems to be a 50/50 split between politics and it clashes.

Rachel - 11/03/2020

This was my first year at Edinboro and although I was online the school put in lots of effort to make students feel involved. All of my professors are extremely helpful and are always available to assist students in need. The classes are small, making them feel personal and the professors know everyone by name. I love the atmosphere at Edinboro and am so glad I chose this University over other Universities.

Rebecca - 05/18/2020

Edinboro University has great accredited programs, including the art department I am enrolled in. People have graduated from Edinboro and moved on to work on popular animated movies such as How to Train Your Dragon and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The programs offered in my department are serious, yet enjoyable. The professors are frequently available for one-on-one time and will do anything to see a student succeed. I would highly recommend going to Edinboro University for Fine or Studio Arts.

Grace - 04/07/2020

I am accepted as a freshman at Edinboro University for the Fall of 2020. However, I’ve had the pleasure of attending four summer’s worth of band camps through Edgewood Sr. High School. So essentially, I have spent one month “living” on campus. The dorm rooms were nicer than what I had pictured in my mind. They were more like little apartments than the one room dorms I had stayed in during cheer camp. I was so impressed with the culture and upkeep of the campus that it ended up being my top choice for colleges. The summer resident advisors living in the dorms were super helpful and encouraged us to explore the campus pool, bookstore and soccer areas during our break times. The campus is a medium sized campus so it’s fairly easy to walk to any destination. The only part of Edinboro I was not thrilled with was their dining services. However, I’m sure most college campuses serve “crowd pleasers” like greasy hamburgers, pizza and fries. At least they offered a fresh salad bar each day! I’m sure over the next school year I will adapt to the menu! Additionally, my mom and I attended Edinboro’s Open House last summer and I was able to meet with professors and current students in my field of study. This visit cemented my desire to attend the university. Due to Covid 19 I am missing out on the ending of my senior year but planning my freshman year at Edinboro has kept my spirits up!

Edinboro University of Pennsylvania FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Edinboro University of Pennsylvania is 95%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would first look at what kind of educational programs the college offers that will support your major. If you cannot get the appropriate education for what you want to major in, then you need to find another college. It needs to have an extensive program that best fits your needs. I would also look at tuition and housing prices. The university I attended made it very easy for students to apply for financial aid, and that is how I was able to attend. If you cannot afford the tuition, look into financial aid and apply for scholarships. These really help. To make the most of your college experience, make sure that you GO TO CLASS! You need to attend classes to get the information you will need to pass. Also, do not overwhelm yourself in any given semester. If you can only handle 12 credits instead of 18, then just take 12. It does not do you any good to be so burned out that you can't retain anything. Remember...you are in college to learn and prepare for your future so make the most of your time there!

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

    What I don't like is that there isn't enough funding for the Arts. My school doesn't have the money for better equipment in the film and animation studios, the only way they are able to replace parts is by student studio fees every semester but it's still not enough. We need the money to be able to learn new computer software and to compete with other colleges.

    Edinboro is very student oriented and cares about the students success. As a freshman it is mandatory for every student to attend what is called common hour. Common hour gives you the ability to find out about different careers and different options the campus has available.

Also common hour allows you to meet other students who are majoring in the same field as you.
