Eastern Illinois University Reviews
Review Eastern Illinois University
I love the campus! Its not too big and not too small. The people on campus are very friendly and welcoming. I plan to swim at Eastern Illinois University and the swim team is just what I have been looking for. The coach is great and the team is awesome. I really like all of the athletic facilities. And on top of all of that, Eastern Illinois University has the major I want. Charleston is a great city and I can't wait to attend there in the fall of 2017.
Our Greek fraternities and sororities were separated. Not many people of color would be apart of the "Caucasian" fraternities and sororities. I would say, out of the Caucasian fraternities and sororities, I have only seen one African American on one Caucasian fraternities and there would be zero Caucasians on African Americans fraternities and sororities. Out of the many Caucasian fraternities and sororities and the 6 African American fraternities and sororities, they made it easy to talk to them and participate. Students enjoyed being around the Greek life. They had houses for Greeks to live in and or they could have their on apartment.
My expectations of this school was very high because it was my top choice. This school has met and exceeded some of my expectations. the professors are very knowledgable about the course they teach and the course material, they always make themselves available to help. The campus is very safe and welcoming. The student social life at Eastern could be better, more students need to participate in the programs and clubs that are offered. Overall i love this school and i am enjoying my college experience.
