Most Helpful Review for Eastern Connecticut State University

It's not UConn, but that's a part of its draw. I doubt you'll take any classes with more than thirty people, whereas your freshman classes at UConn might have upwards of fifty, maybe a hundred. I'm not saying it's a bad school, but UConn is a completely different atmosphere. My friends who go there feel like numbers. It's nowhere near as friendly as ECSU, and more and more of the students are rich, spoiled kids who's trust funds ran out. MY parents are UConn alums, and they're ashamed of how UConn's gotten worse. ECSU is the way to go!

    Very small in a way that there's enough room but no one's getting lost all the time. Lots of support for students, if you're able to wait for it. Nice professors.

    Lots of opportunities to get involved and be a part of something. Professors really want you to succeed. A small community where you feel like you are really involved.

    Eastern has a very beautiful campus, not in the best area, but still a great size and visually pleasing. The community at Eastern is less than welcoming despite this size which is disheartening; however, the classes are not hard and you will find your way and where you belong.

    A school with a variety of course levels for students. Wonderful on campus living for those that choose to get involved. A state school with expected complications.
