Well, I wish I had known the rules about visitors and when they can visit before coming here. They can only stay in the room from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. most nights. I don't really like that rule but I do like the art class they offer. I will also take gym next semester. About the professors, I haven't really been here long enough to have a favorite per say, but I do like all my professors I have. Walking to all my classes is somewhat bothersome since I have to walk about 15 to 20 minutes to get to most of them. When I forget something in the class and I've already walked back to my dorm, that gets very irritating. But it does provide exercise, which is a good thing. Bicycles aren't allowed on campus though so I can't get there any faster. Activities I really like to get involved in. Unfortunately, because my schedule setup I wasn't able to watch quite a few of the volleyball games. I haven't gone to any of the fine arts productions either. But I do like all the possibilities of activities to attend. I would definitely recommend going to different activities to experience college life.

EAC is very cheep and affordable and yet you still get a quality education and the professors know you personally since the class sizes are small. The counselors are very knowledgeable and helpful in selecting classes.
