The Edinboro University of Pennsylvania
The Edinboro University of Pennsylvania - Comments and Student Experiences|
I will admit that I am very happy with the roommates I got, but as for the dorm, not at all. The Highlands are nice (sometimes) but extremely expensive and poorly built. I live in the newest dorm, Highlands 8, which they "finished" building not even a week before we moved in. My room is always filled with gnatts and we have asked for attention to the problem twice with no answer. The other students are noisy and rude during all hours of the night. Screaming, stomping, running up and down the halls. Unless you have a car to drive to Erie, then you really will have no fun on campus or around Edinboro cause there is nothing here.
Edinboro is cheap compared to others, but they do not help at all when it comes to financial aid or any other office assitence. The workers in the office are rude the majority of the time, and could care less about your problems to help you. Also the information they provide about mostly anything on there website is so confusing that if you do not understand it is your fault.The only reason I am staying at this school is because it supposivly has a good education program. But I'm not too sure of that yet cause I am taking classes here that I have already taken in high school. Wasting my time with these credits? I think so.
That was just the nursing department. The school as a whole is a mess. Communication and organization is the poorest that I've ever encountered (and I've studied at multiple PA universities). Nobody ever knows what anyone else is doing, and instead of talking to each other, they instruct non-innovative students to pass important information onto the innovative students. When registering for classes, dates / times are incorrect and getting accurate information is nearly impossible (we registered for classes weeks ago - we STILL don't know the correct dates / times for most of the courses).
They'll try to make you think the program is SOOO competitive, but it's not. They accepted at least 5 (that's 25% of the whole class) of the innovates into the program within 1 month of the start of classes, 2 of which weren't accepted until 2 days before the start of class. Why? Because a lot of the original accepted students opted to come here (and they're wiser because of it). I could write a book about this school in general, and the nursing department specifically. I'm not a disgruntled student. I just know poor quality when I see it, and I'm seeing a lot of it here. Do yourself a favor and look at other nursing programs.
The traditional dorms (Rose, Towers, Earp and Dearborn) are nice. They are a good way to talk to people, since doors are always open and people tend to be very social. Rose Hall was amazing because I met the best people of my life over there. Too bad it is getting closed for renovations.
Highlands are nice. But they always get messed up. But for the most part they are very nice buildings.
Classes are nice. I took Psychology+Sociology+Philosophy and it completely changed the way I saw things.
The Biology and the Computer Science departments are very helpful. As long as you want help, they will offer you some. You just have to go after it. And I'm sure it works the same with any other department.
It snows. It sucks. Get over it.
Good rec sports. Good clubs. Good greek.
The campus is beautiful in the fall and spring. But the winter is awful. You get classes cancelled a lot.
People here LOVE to whine. If you zone those people out, your experience here will be FUN.
Edinboro is a small town, but Erie, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo aren't too far. And they are nice cities to be in.
Women are not very attractive here. And the hot ones are hoes. Wrap it before you tap it.
No school spirit. But my friends and I would cheer and support the school teams no matter what.Overall, it is a great place to go to school at. Good science programs, good art and education as well.
