    eastern is very stingy. library is barely opened on weekends. the dining hall closes at 7:30 every week night so if you do not have a kitchen, you are forced to order out. it is only opened for like 7 hours a day on the weekend. gym is is barely opened on saturday. it is almost like they encourage kids to go home on the weekends.
