It was a bit smaller than other schools I looked at, and not in a big city. However, it's 45 min-1 1/2 hours away from a lot of big cities. Also, it has a stronger teaching program than the other schools I considered.


The cost of tutition and the classroom sizes


Very safe and flat rate tuition.


Emporia State University's competitive advantage is value. Many of its programs are nationally and academically competitive with those of larger area schools. However, the price is much lower, especially for in-state tuition. Some may say "you get what you pay for", and I partially agree. But when it comes to getting the most for your money, Emporia State University is an intelligent investment at any income level.


The thing that is unique about my school is the family atmosphere that the teachers and students have with one another.


Emporia State University is a very small and close knit college where you will get to know lots of people including your teachers. The University also allows you to be close to all of your classes and be able to walk to them in a few minutes no matter how the weather is. Emporia State also offers a very good teaching program and with me being a Secondary Social Science major that drew me in. Emporia also is a very small and nice town that provides many places to eat, shop, and have fun at.


The size of the classes. When i was looking at other colleges, mainly Kansas State University, I kept hearing how nice it was to have smaller classes. Everyone I talked to told me ESU's classes were some of the smallest i would ever have, and they were right. The largest class i believe i had was 48 students. I truly think these smaller classes made it easier to come to class and learn the material. In addition i made a great deal of friends in the process, seeing and talking to the same people every day.


This school is perfect for those who come from small towns or want small classes. The tuition is low compared to similar schools, and the teachers education courses are amazing.


Emporia State University is primarily focused on education majors and does a wonderful job preparing those in that field. The professors as well, are wonderful in this field. It is also known to be one of the more conservative and religious campuses.
