Eastern Illinois University Reviews
Eastern has one of the most positive environments out of any school that I've visited and attended. The location is great, with many stores, activities, and resources within walking distance of campus, and there is always something fun to do. Eastern offers a wide variety of majors, so there is sure to be something there that you'll like, and the majority of the professors are very knowledgeable and willing to help their students to succeed. It's also a very safe campus with a very supportive student body as well as blue emergency polls that alert people to trouble and let you call the campus police. I couldn't imagine attending any other school. In some ways, Eastern feels more like home to me than my own house does!
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.
