Am learning a lot
Eastern has really taught me a lot not just academically, but also spiritually and personally. One of the biggest lessons I've learned is just how connected everything is. I've learned things in TaeKwon-Do that applied to Psychology that then applied to my spiritual life!
Am enjoying being here
It's really a wonderful place if you have the right attitude! Most of the people here are exceptionally loving and ready to encourage and uplift you!
Bang for the buck
It's a lot of money to go here, and yeah, we sometimes joke about where our money's really going, but in the long run, it's worth it for all the learning we'll do both in and out of the classroom.
Tips for prospective students
Visit! I love Eastern, but I recognize that's it not for everyone. Spending a day or so here--particularly if you stay overnight--can really help reveal whether you're meant to be here or not. Plus, if you do decide to come, it's great to already have an upperclassman friend.
Great for these types of students
Eastern is a great place for the open-minded. People who are willing to question and to see God work in sometimes unconventional ways are well-suited. People with a strong heart for social justice and change and who have aligned themselves with the heart of God will also do great here.

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.
Tips for prospective students
Feel free to contact any department or student at Eastern! There are Explore Eastern weekends featuring speakers, tours, and more, and I highly recommend them. Remember to do well in your current studies, and look forward to your time (even if it's just a visit) at Eastern!
Academic Rigor
I love that the academics stretch my understanding and expand my knowledge. Meanwhile, the workload is completely reasonable!
Dorm Life
There is something wonderful and warming about every single residence hall. The sense of community is excellent, and I would gladly live anywhere on campus!
Food and Dining
The food services offer a variety of healthy and delicious options, and there are plenty of well paying job opportunities for new students too!
What to do for fun
There are always awesome activities put on by both the students and the university that are great for bonding with other students. There are a lot of great recreational options within walking distance of the campus as well!
Bang for the buck
This school is very reasonably priced for everything it offers!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The one thing everyone has to see while being on Eastern's campus is the historical water wheel! It is gorgeous, and compliments the mansions that the campus was built upon. The main student center is built on the old mansion of a philanthropist named Charles Walton. Within these mansions are places to study, and explore, and relax!
Great for these types of students
Eastern is so diverse that just about anyone can find their place there. It's so neat to be with a mix of people than come together in one area and accomplish goals together, especially in the loving setting that Eastern has.
Clubs and Activities
There is something for everyone, and everyone is encouraged to participate in the many activities! Whether you like the outdoors, art, charities, theater, dance, or any number of things, there is absolutely bound to be a club that you will love!
Greek Life
While there aren't any Greek fraternities or sororities, there are many clubs and organizations that have Greek Life-like characteristics. For example, many sports teams have their own buildings that they live in, and there are a lot of community service oriented clubs. There are also gender specific groups in which you can bond with a close group of girls or guys called Grow Groups. They are bound to be your brothers or sisters for life!
Campus Safety
Eastern's campus security is top of the line. Not only does everyone feel safe, but the security guards go out of their way to help students get from place to place, unlock buildings, and maintain order.

Eastern is an amazing place for Christian students to study in a warm, safe, and welcoming environment. They have a top notch nursing program, and are dedicated to the lives of their students. They are there to help you suceed on your journey through college, and life beyond it.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you take you time to really talk to a college representative, they are so helpful, and answer your questions without trying to force you into their school.
Academic Rigor
Eastern can seem strict, but they are a top Pennsylvania college. You aren't going to find another college that is as invested in you as Eastern.
Dorm Life
Though I have not been there personally, my friends hardly want to come home over breaks, they love every second they've spent at eastern, and they've created a second family on campus.
Food and Dining
According to anybody who has ever visited the Eastern campus, their food is amazing, and the atmosphere is comfy and enjoyable.
What to do for fun
There is no limit to the posibilities of entertaining yourself, between clubs, activities, and the nearby hang out spots, you won't ever want to leae. Plus, Cabrini is right across the street, so you might even run in to your friends more often than you expected.

The dorms have so much history behind you can just tell by looking at the their structure how significant they are to the campus. They are standard sized dorms, a great place to study and explore friendships!

There is so much variety on this campus! Different course every time of day! For those that are going to be freshman this campus has an unlimited food plan so you will never have to worry about no having enough because there is just so much! It is even open on the weekends and also there is another college cafe on campus just 3 minutes from the dining commons, that has great food as well!! Different cultural tastes and self serving options!!!

I'm learning sooo much! I'm even learning stuff in the classes that I thought would be overly easy!

I love Eastern! It is truly my home away from home.
Bang for the buck
The tuition price is great! I'm paying so much less than my friends and I'm getting the same education, if not better in some cases!

Don't commute unless you live close and always keep and eye on your bills.

Will learn a lot
I look forward to studying at a university whose focus is faith, reason and justice. The combination of these seems ideal to me.
Will enjoy being here
So far the application process has been great. I was surprised in speaking with them on the phone as to how personal the conversation was. Not something I expected, but made me feel very welcome.
Bang for the buck
I'm not real sure about this one. College is expensive and so is this one. However I'm hopeful that I will be able to acquire helpful scholarships and have already received one from the school. I also expect that small classroom sizes with more one on one learning opportunity will be highly beneficial. 99 percent of students receive financial aid.
