It's great beacuase of the great friendships I have made there. However, you have to work on trying out new thing that you may have not done in high school. I love that EIU is small public school because there are times when im walking to my classes and I see familiar faces but once in awhile i'll see some new faces on campus. There are so many organization to join on campus that everyone and anyone can join. There are always one or two professors that you are excited to have for the school year but there will be a time you will be in a class with a teacher , who you looked up their rating on "rate my professor", who you are nervous about, but then they end up being your favorite teacher that semester! One thing I wish EIU campus had more of was better dining option for students on and especially off campus.
