    EIU is definitely an awesome college. You get the atmosphere and experience of a big university, but it's not so overwhelming.

    Be sure to start off college with good study habits. If things don't go so well in the first semester, learn from your mistakes. You can always put a higher amount of effort to improve your experience.

    Get involved. Find things that interest you or may interest you and run with it. Eastern provides a great deal of opportunities from Greek Life, to clubs, student government, and volunteer opportunities for everyone to get into. There is no reason not to get involved in at least one thing on campus, and it'll make both your experience, and your transcripts a whole lot better. Also, remember that college is work, and while having a good time is easy to do on this campus and in a college setting in general, never lose sight of why you're here-- to get an education.

    It is perfect if you are looking for a school you don't get lost in. The people are friendly in town. Your education/learning is endless here. You get what you want out of an education when you attend EIU.

    It isn't that hard to get around campus. During the weekend before classes, there is usually a student led tour to help find classes. I did that an it helped me greatly. Check your panthermail often. It would probably help if you had it hooked up to your phone. That's what I did anyway. One of the best places to meet people is a church. If you have time to work on something, even if it's only a little time and the assignment isn't due until the next week, get a head start anyway. That helps with not getting overwhelmed.
