  • There is something wonderful and warming about every single residence hall. The sense of community is excellent, and I would gladly live anywhere on campus!…

    If you're a picky eater, maybe its not for you. Not very diverse food here, either.

    The food of the cafeteria is terrible they normally don't give you food everyone likes and if they do it disappears easily. They should change the meal plans and the food they give.

    The food is pretty good for a college campus. Jammin' Java is great, and the Breezeway is a nice change from the Dining Commons, especially if you miss dinner or need a late snack! The monthly specials in the DC are definitely a treat - don't miss them!

    Freshman have to get the unlimited food plan, which is amazing. Their dining hall has great food and great options. Also they have plenty of cafes for people who want other stuff too.

    The food here at Eastern is, unfortunately, not the best. If you are interested in not gaining the freshman fifteen, then Eastern University is the place for you! Eastern does offer gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan options, but it is not always the best quality. There are, however, two other locations on campus to get food that are open at later hours and have tastier options, including a coffee shop.

    The dining commons is buffet style and there are always some good options. We also have the Breezeway and the Eagle's nest, which have good food and will accept money that is on your school account (flex dollars) The Jammin Java is the coffee shop and has a lot of good choices even for those who don't drink coffee.

    Eastern does not offer opportunities to be involved with fraternities or sororities. It is, however, very easy to join a group or club on campus that Eastern offers in which you may find people with similar interests.

    While there aren't any Greek fraternities or sororities, there are many clubs and organizations that have Greek Life-like characteristics. For example, many sports teams have their own buildings that they live in, and there are a lot of community service oriented clubs. There are also gender specific groups in which you can bond with a close group of girls or guys called Grow Groups. They are bound to be your brothers or sisters for life!
