Established in 1895, Eastern Illinois University is based in Charleston, IL. The campus buildings are made of Indiana limestone in a Gothic-revival style. The school is rated as having “selective” admissions. Top fields of study are liberal arts and humanities. Kinesiology and exercise science, and communications. It is the smallest university in the nation to run a daily newspaper and one of three universities to have its own printing press.
Eastern Illinois University is a place where you can be a part of many different things. There are awesome spots to study around campus and people to help you along the way. The writing center and tutors are a great thing to take advantage of.

Eastern is a very small university. The professors care about teaching over research. The community is very safe and caring.
