What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
Eastern University is one of the best options out there for prospective Christian college students. I am still struggling to find something that I DON'T like! Eastern ensures quality education, memories, and spiritual growth.
Leta from Herkimer, NY
There is wonderful community and people there who really care about you. Living there with all the waterfalls and landscaping is like living in a fairytale. The campus is in a great spot for fun activities: The King of Prussia Mall, Wayne, Philly, and the train to take you to so many places.
