| Eastern is a great place to attend if you enjoy a hands-on experience in all fields. It doesn't have much social-wise, but if you're really focused on your work and career you'll be good. |

| I have always considered myself a highly motivated person with great work ethic and common sense. I was not necessarily a great ECSU student academically (graduated with a 2.75 GPA). However, ECSU did help me expand my mind through some real-life situations I encountered outside the classroom (e.g. parties, intramurals, living on & off campus, etc.) Honestly, I did not learn very much in the classrooms at ECSU. In addition, I did not have a great relationship with some administrative members (i.e. Dr. Jackson ? who is no longer at ECSU, etc.). But, like in the real world, I also had some great relationships with administrative members (i.e. Mr. Ken Bedini, etc.). Nevertheless, I still have a bitter taste in my mouth from the way I was treated by the administrative members who did not care for me. This is the main reason why I will never donate my time, services and/or money to ECSU. Overall, luckily, as an individual, I am doing extremely well with my career and am very happy. I have been able to accomplish and experience some great things since graduating college. I realize I have been tremendously fortunate in my career, but do not credit my success to ECSU. |

I will start with the positive: The small size of the campus and student body was helpfull in a couple differant ways. For one, you were able to see friends often and didn't feel overwelmed by the amount of students. I made good friends there and many of us still keep in contact three years after graduation. Second, it was easy to ask questions because class sizes were normally kept to 20-25 students. The size of the campus also made it easy to get around between classes and dorms.
On the other hand, there were areas that Eastern needs to improve. For me, the academics were not challenging. I found most of the classes to be uninspiring and I sensed that most of the faculty AND students just weren't interested. Even my advisor acted as if I was a bother to him when I came with questions. Furthermore, Eastern lacks a strong reputation and network in the CT business community. As a business student, I hadn't realized how important this was till my junior year. This made it difficult when looking for internships and jobs.
In summary I will say this:If you are interested in education, playing college baseball, or an easy degree, then Eastern may be a good fit. For anyone else, I would look at other options before you make your decision.
