    Eastern is a great value, but the high tuition can be a burden for many students. Definitely look into outside scholarships, and be in contact with the Financial Aid Office to work out what you need to do to minimize your financial worries.

    Eastern University can be a bit pricy, but the financial aid office is pretty good about offering scholarships, grants and financial aid. I know that I was a little intimidated by the prices at first, but the financial aid office at Eastern did all that they could to get me more scholarship when I asked for help. I personally think that my experiences here at Eastern have been priceless, but the costs here at Eastern have continued to rise. This, unfortunately, has made it hard for some students to stay at Eastern.

    It is a private school, so it's more expensive than the state-alternatives. However, my brother attends a state school, and I can say that the quality of my education seems far greater than what he receives.
