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!

    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.

    Eastern makes you realize that there is no other university like it. Some would argue that it is just a state school, but they are missing out on the amazing opportunities that Eastern has to offer. Eastern achieves in its academics, residential life and overall appearance at such a low cost compared to private universities that couldn't compare.

    As a graduate student, I am sure my experience is much different than undergraduate classes. There was little support from my advisers on what classes to take and many were canceled due to class size which was very frustrating. The professors on the other hand were great!
