DONT come here!!!!!BrightSocial Work
DONT come here!!!!!
It is a terrible school located in the SNOW BELT. this meaning that all it ever does is snow from aug. to may.

There is nothing to do in edinboro. and the roads are always too bad to go into erie.
99% of the campus is commuters from erie who don't even want the college experience.. they still have their same high school friends and have no intentions of making new friends.

and the other % of students are in frats or sororities and pay people to "be their friends." these are the people who were social outcasts in high school so now love college cause they paid off people to be their friends.

The teachers are okay (some) but most depts. are short staffed and if u have a bad one you can get stuck with them consecutively for semester upon semester until your gpa is ruined.Oh, and let me stress again the SNOW. DONT come here. it is depressing and the snow will never allow you to leave!!!!

I have also been to three different schoolsSuper BrilliantSocial Work
I have also been to three different schools in my college career. Edinboro has by far been the best of my experiences. The Edinboro campus is clean and well maintained. I LOVE the Porreco campus. I have honestly signed up for courses that I had no interest in simply because they were at the Porreco campus. It's a beautiful place. The small class sizes are great because there is more personal one on one time with the professors. The professors are always available to talk with you and help you and they actually try to form relationships with their students and become friendly with them. In fact the other day one of my professors asked me to stay after class because she wanted to introduce me to her husband. It's a great school where you will be challenged academically and will enjoy the small class sizes. The students are mostly friendly. There are some incredibly stupid people (Um college = drunk idiots) but if you can avoid those morons then you will definetly be challenged and gain a much better understanding of your topic. I've never been a good student, but since attending Edinboro I have not only excelled in my school work (from a 2.3 in high school to a 3.9 in college) but I have actually grown to LOVE school! In fact I'm planning on attending grad school, which is something I wouldn't have EVER considered before attending Edinboro. I have had one of the best experiences of my life at this school and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an AWESOME education experience.

I have been to three different colleges inBrightSocial Work
I have been to three different colleges in my college career and I can honestly say that I love Edinboro. The faculty is very friendly and very eager to help you. If you are struggling or they notice that you haven't been attending class rather than just ignoring it and letting you fail they approach you and ask if there is any way that they can help you. There is a lot of Extra Credit offered in almost every class. Some teachers have accents but not to the point that you can't understand them. The campus does there best to try to encourage students to attend activities by posting notices and emails and letting you know about upcoming sporting events as well as movies nights, clubs, etc. The students are very friendly and since it's a small college the experience is much more personal and the classes are smaller so there is more one on one communication with the professor. The town is tiny and there isn't much to do in Edinboro, but Erie is only a twenty minute drive and there is plenty to do there, meadville isn't far either and if you're wanting to drive an hour or so Grove City has an awesome mall and is huge!! Pittsburgh is also pretty close so there is a lot to do, plus they have some awesome churches in Edinboro!
