    I love Eastern. It is my favorite place to be. The campus is amazing, especially our art center, Dounda. I even love the town of Charleston itself. The residence halls are great! There are a lot of off campus housing to look at. It is overall a great place!

    There isn't much to do here, but there is so many activities and extra-curriculars for everyone. Making friends is easy. The people you see in your classes will more than likely be in another class or two with you again. Close knit community:)

    Most people want to attend a huge big ten school, but EIU to me is a great campus and has a great environment. The campus is small but big enough so that you will receive a college experience. The people are friendly and just exert Panther pride. I would tell everyone to attend EIU. Its a nice place.
