Overall

Eastern's small size in Charleston, IL is very inviting and offers alot of support for its students!

Academics

The class sizes are small about 15-20 students in a class, and most of the teachers have PhDs and some have Masters. The workload is constant and requires ALOT of focus. It helps your grow personally and professionally.

College Life

EIU is a safe campus honestly. The city of Charleston has a low crime rate. The EIU police are friendly, but make sure their is no underage drinking, drunk driving, or rule breaking. There are mostly bars along Lincoln Ave. that students utilize the most. Jimmy Johns, Jerry's Pizza, and Chubbys are the best late night spots to dine at.

Overall

Eastern has been a good choice for me. It was a small town atmosphere within the campus. I met many great people and have gotten a good education IMy Freshman year I was in the Marching babd which was a blast! This helped me feel like a part of the school and I made many new friends.. I also got involved in LaCross (a sport I had never played) and had the opportunity to travel to different schools to compete. I also enjoyed the Greek life for 1 1/2 years which was a lot of fun. I am going to move back home and go to school closer to home, but I will always cherish my EIU memories and will always have my great education base to take with me.

Academics

I had great teachers for my general education classes and some very good professors in the Special Education department. The classes were reasonably sized so the professors got to know the students. There are always advisors available to help when you have a concern.

College Life

Charleston is an amazing town to be in. There is always something to do. It is safe to walk around campus late at night. There is always something going on either in the dorms, Greek court, or in Charleston. We had many Hula-Hoop fests that were a blasts. Great bands come to Charleston which is always a lot of fun.

A very good school, with small class sizes and a high ratio of PhD.'s to students. Small town atmosphere, but on ten miles to interstate highway. Excellent library!
