I love Eastern. It is my favorite place to be. The campus is amazing, especially our art center, Dounda. I even love the town of Charleston itself. The residence halls are great! There are a lot of off campus housing to look at. It is overall a great place!Read More
There isn't much to do here, but there is so many activities and extra-curriculars for everyone. Making friends is easy. The people you see in your classes will more than likely be in another class or two with you again. Close knit community:)Read More

The people are friendly and just exert Panther pride. I would tell everyone to attend EIU. Its a nice place.Read More
