    Even though ENMU is located in a small town. The community is very close and there is always something to do on campus. Movies are shown every week and there is always a nice dance, dinner, or comedian that the school brings out for the students to enjoy. We even had a mobile ice rink come this past year, which was way cool.

    Portales is a pretty small place. It doesn't have much in the way of business, and the surrounding area is fairly dull. On campus, however, feels like a completely different place. There is a beautiful open area between buildings, featuring plenty of trees and grass. Not only that, there's plenty of activities to fill a student's time, and that includes a decent sized swimming pool. Since a good portion of the college buildings are fairly old, the campus has a sort of... rustic feel about it. Small town students like me will find it a nice transition. However, that rustic feel I mentioned? It's not always good. The standard freshman dorms could really use a rebuild. I heard that they're going to be torn down soon, but they are not exactly what you'd call great.

    If you want a small town feel at school Eastern is for you. It is as if everyone knows each other. It is easy to meet people, because there aren't that many.

    I love Eastern. It's a relatively small school, but the people are are really nice, and the town is definitely set up for a college. The students are always friendly, and its always easy to strike up a conversation with someone.

    I love the East Coast, with its mesmerizing landscape, unique cities, and magnitude of people. In a way, it was tough to leave it for a state university that no one I knew had even heard of. Yet when I checked into Freshman orientation, I fell in love. The school is like a little green gem surrounded by miles upon miles of desert-like landscape. The college town, Portales, is small. A Wal-Mart and a post office about sums it up. Yet for some reason, there is always something to do. Not a day goes by without learning something new, meeting interesting people or getting caught in the sprinklers.
