My first year of college and I felt more than welcomed. I felt like I was visiting family! The professors and faculty in every building and encounter were more than helpful and very kind. They helped me with any question or any confusion. Though some classes were harder than others, I could ask any questions at given times and be granted with a sense of comfort and understanding. I really loved the feel of campus and the helpful hands of the people around me, faculty or friend.
Review Your College
I loved the class sizes and the relationships you could build with your professors. The school emphasized learning, and the music program was especially amazing. One thing they could improve on is their work to retain professors. All of my best and favorite professors stopped working there either during my three and a half years or soon after. They were amazing professors who moved on to greater things, and I think Eastern needs to try to realize what they have before letting such wonderful mentors and educators leave their midst.
When I first went to visit Eastern New Mexico University, I thought I would never go to that school. My parents then came up with a surprise visit there, and well it has been one of the greatest schools. I not only liked the campus but the people there as well, they make you feel welcomed. They make you experience the college life by introducing you around. Their director knows that college students are poor and that they need money so they work around their students schedule and give them a job which is also a nice opportunity for everyone. Eastern is a fun place to be at and I recommend it.
