    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is a must. At East West University, you will feel safe here with cameras and friendly security guards.

    Food and Dining

    They are always building a opening places in the downtown area to serve students. If you don't want to eat in the cafeteria, you can always choose somewhere close by to eat at.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is awesome. They just built the dorms, and everything is included, like wifi, cable, fitness rooms, even laundry rooms on every floor for free!

    Academic Rigor

    Although the courses are challenging, they are a breath of fresh air. You will be surrounded by staff and instructors to help you along the way. There will be classes that you will enjoy as well and are a breeze.

    Tips for prospective students

    Transfer all of your school credits, apply for loans, and apply for financial aid to make everything easier when you decide to finally join. And, just have fun!

    In three sentences

    East-West University is a college where you can get all that you need. Although it's a small place, you see different races and cultures in one place. It's packed with majors that are on the market and thriving.

    Campus Safety

    I didn't feel much safe while going to this school. The security guards that work there look Very tired, not to mention just by looking at them- they don't look like much help. I don't think they would jump-in and try to break up any fights/ arguments that might breakout at the school.

    Greek Life

    There aren't NONE.

    Clubs and Activities

    There aren't NONE.

    Great for these types of students

    East-West University is the type of school that's great for people that doesn't have anything going for themselves, one whose doesn't plan on having a future, doesn't have any goals in life. This school is full ghetto,students who loves to start drama and fights.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    It's located downtown Chicago.

    Bang for the buck

    East-West University is a waste. Everybody deserves more and to be treated with respect and sorry to say, but THERE ISN'T NONE HERE.

    What to do for fun

    They isn't much to do on campus. EWU doesn't have any sports or extracurricular activities that involves their students, not even student government. NOTHING. There also isn't much to do downtown Chicago. Grant Park near the school- it's great for walking around, sitting down and enjoying the view, or hanging out with friends.

    Food and Dining

    The food is expensive. The only thing that's inexpensive is a bag of chips and a soda.

    Tips for prospective students

    This school is a JOKE!! EWU accepts anything and everybody, there's not much diversity- there's more African American students than any other race. EWU is full of college rejects. Every black male/ female student that goes there is either homeless, a thug, college dropout, or couldn't get into a better college. EWU doesn't have any standards or curriculum to accepting their students. Once, you sign up the VERY NEXT DAY you will get a call from somebody that works there to get you started on signing up for classes. THEY ARE THIRSTY FOR STUDENTS. And THEY'RE VERY QUICK TO SIGN PEOPLE UP FOR LOANS. I went to East-West University for one semester and they automatically signed me up for a 4,000 dollar loan ( both subsidized and unsubsidized. Not to mention I was only taking 3 classes. The staff at EWU. are rude, especially the people who work in the financial aid office. Some teachers are very strict and won't give any students a fair chance to pass a class. What college do you know if was established in 1980 doesn't already have a dormitory built for it's students? SMH, it's about to be the year 2013 and they're just NOW building one. DON'T COME TO EAST-WEST UNIVERSITY. it's a waste.

    In three sentences

    East-West University is a JOKE, they're very thirsty, rude, unorganized, unprofessional, greedy, and a waste of life and time. DON'T COME TO THIS SCHOOL.

    Great for these types of students

    This college is great for people who have a lot of responsibilities besides school such as a job or kids. This is also a good school for international students.

    Tips for prospective students

    The main tip I have is love reading. If you do not love reading then pretend you do and read or learn to love reading. Do not worry to much about if you are going to be able to understand the information you learn because most colleges have free tutoring.

    Bang for the buck

    This is a very affordable college.

    Did enjoy being here

    I enjoyed being here but it is not a lot of extracurricular activities to do on campus but it is located downtown Chicago so on a break you could find something to do around the campus outside.

    Did learn a lot

    I learned a lot from here. when you go to here or any college as a freshman, the first thing you should know is that you have to do a lot of studying for yourself and reading. When a chapter is given to read, do not think just because you have the book you already know the information, actually read it! Everything you here in a lecture from your professor is not all that is on the exam. Just be aware.

    Bang for the buck

    Compared to many other universities, East West University is very reasonable. Considering it is an accredited private university, you should definately get a bang for your buck. I am very excited to attend.

    Food and Dining

    I will not be attending here until Jan 2013. The university is in Chicago's south loop so food and dining should be no problem. Many places will give student discounts.

    Dorm Life

    East West does not have dorms which is fine with me. I was not interested in staying on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    I like the fact that East West is a small university. There are no more than 20 students in most classes. Based on their mission statement, the faculty and staff adhere to very high academic standards in instructional delivery and hands-on laboratory / clinical exercises.

    Campus Safety

    There are guards around the hall ways and even elevators in case of fights and there are cameras everywhere.

    Greek Life

    None what so ever.

    Clubs and Activities

    No type of fun clubs and if there were then there would be a outstanding amount of fun in East West.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who want to get it done and over with, then come to East West University. Those who want an easy time and easy challenges then come to Easy West University.

    Bang for the buck

    Some students wish for East West to become a more lively college and so some students give ideas to bring more students together and have a fun time, but sadly it is not the dream that most students want or need.

    What to do for fun

    There is a gym and a basketball court which is very new to East West. There are a minimal amount of clubs at East West since students do not want to initiate new clubs or re-new old clubs as well.

    Food and Dining

    Plain and simple, the food is located in the basement of the east building. Students have to call in order to get food in case of hunger.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life at East West is a poor example of University dorms; since East West had a long time to let potential college students have a dorm in the new building but took quite a long time to 'open the doors' for the students.

    Academic Rigor

    Poor academic rigor due to chances of cheating and learning off the internet instead of the books. Professors here at East West are non caring, and do not give a sense of compassion for students with a hard time figuring out tough class work or homework.

    Tips for prospective students

    Reading your books and studying for the finals are the best since all you need to do is to past the class with a good grade. Do not get attached to your professors because the college does not put them on the same teaching subject.

    In three sentences

    East West University is a fast paced college where you are always on your toes by the time you step into the campus. Located in Chicago's famous metropolitan hot spot, it offers top notch universities and other fun activities. If you plan to visit campus or even attend campus as a college student, you would have a better social life at any other college

    Tips for prospective students

    Get to know and interact with the instructors and advisers, which can lead to numerous internship opportunities, and career advancement.

    In three sentences

    Quality education at a reasonable price, with well qualified skilled instructors who interact with their students, and in a great location in the downtown area of the city of Chicago.
