    Eastern has great Freshman scholarships, but not much for transfer students. Luckily I didn't transfer so I have a great scholarship. If you have the chance, definitely live on campus for your first year so you can get the feel for everything.

    I don't think I get my monies worth because I still be bored. I still had to take out loans but there is no school spirit. You can definitely find a better school to attend.
