    It's very college-friendly, you can access it quick, simply and easy. There are also quite a few diners around town that you can go to off of campus as well that are within walking distance.

    The Eateries on campus are really good but the grease and be a bit much if you aren't used to it. The Commons dining area is also great if you want a home cooked kind of meal. Of course neither place is a four star restaurant, but they are definitely edible. Then you also have your Flex Dollars which you can spend at the Eagle Cafes and Lobby Shop.

    This school offers various food locations, the most common being the Eastern Eateries and Commons. Everything I've had so far from both places have been delicious!

    The food at the First Year Center(the main source of food for freshman) was okay at first, but after awhile it starts to get old fast. There are a lot of other places to eat on campus ,but most of them are not worth the trip.

    Greek life is a little different at Eastern because it is highly regulated. Fraternities and sororities are very close nit and everyone knows each other.

    Greek Life is good here. They have weekly meetings on Sundays and also they make you really get involved on campus. You meet a whole lot of new people in Greek Life and it gives you a bunch of leadership and social skills. This is mostly where the fun is in my opinion cause this is a group of people who have your back, who you can hang around with and become great friends with. You can create so many new experiences in Greek Life and expand your social network.
