What Students Are Saying

3.60 Average Rating
never skip classes because the professors will not repeat their whole lecture for you, college is a time to take responsibility and eastern is a place to acquire that. also, make sure you attend a 4-year plan workshop, it is very benificial in seeinf which courses you need to take in coming years and it saves time when you have to register for classes.
Do your work, all of it.
Shannon from Manchester, CT
Take advantage of small class sizes and professor's office hours! They will definitely help you and help you succeed.
Get involved! Whether it be a club, the activity board, SGA, or a sport, do it! It won't be a waste of time and will help you meet new people, and learn new skills.
Kaitlyn from Shelton, CT
No matter what anyone says, this school is a perfect match for anyone. There is so much to offer here, especially if you are unsure of what you want to do in the future. There are many degrees that you may want to pursue and the advisors and staff will help you along the way.
- You have to work hard to recieve good grades
- It is not a huge campus
-Join clubs and go to events
-Make the most out of Eastern
Brianna from Putnam, CT
Enroll in a variety of courses from different subject areas, especially in the first two years, since these years focus on general education requirements. Eastern offers many opportunites to explore other fields and interesting topics with its gen-eds. Also, enjoy the activities they provide for you!
Heather from Willington, CT
Come up and take a tour of the campus you will automatically fall in love! It isnt as big as Uconn but that is good because everything is close together so you know exactly where you are going. Talk to students that go to Eastern and see what they think about it and just research the college more.
Megan from East Lyme, CT
If you apply, talk to Dr. PAMELA STARR! She's an amazing person and has already been a great resource for me. If you have AD(H)D, OCD, or any type of disability, she is DEFINITELY the first person you want to see once you're accepted.
Miles from Storrs Mansfield, CT
Get involved and stay for the weekends! There are so many fun things to do on campus which is a great way to meet people. Also, a little known fact about Eastern is that it is considered a suitcase school, meaning that many students go home for the weekend. But weekends are the best time to get work done and socialize! There are always events on campus for the weekends!!
