The Gen. Ed. classes are all enjoyable and my major classes were taught by teachers who knew their subjects very well.

    Eastern Illinois provides both a great academic and social enviornment for it's students. There are a broad range of on and off campus clubs, and activities to choose from, including a large greek life opportunity. It's gorgeous campus is close enough to essential stores, hospitals, etc., but far away enough from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to provide a great sense of independence, really making that college experience.

    I really like attending EUI because it is a smaller university. The campus is easy to get around. The classes are small enough that if you need some extra help it is very easy.

    On a scale of one to ten, I would give EIU an 11. It is a fantastic school that really cares about its students. The faculty are well versed in their areas and want to see their students succeed.

    I enjoyed the first 2 years here, but regret not transferring thereafter. I did well academically and enjoyed the social environment, but quickly grew bored with the campus and surrounding area. I wish I would have gone somewhere else.

    A great school academically with an almost legendary party atmosphere. Either plan to do you homework early, as you get it, or last minute because you can get easily distracted by this campus. Once you are a Panther, you are always a Panther, even if you drop out/transfer.
