I love it at Eastern! I love how the town of Portales is a small college based town, so it is easy to live here and go to school. You have small sized classes which help and the professors get to know each of their students, this has helped me do well in classes and be comfortable getting help when I need it. Not only is the classroom environment great, the administration and students are very friendly and welcoming. I would change how unhelpful advisors are.

Great environment, staff, and professor! People were really nice and my experience was great. My roommates and friends loved their professors. However, my favorite place was the library. Their new library is big, has food, and a great place to study.
Great university! A sort of hidden gem. Fantastic anthropology program, the entire department is virtually flawless. The campus is well maintained with some beautiful buildings. It's difficult to come by an unfriendly person in the entire town. Only complaints are that it's in middle-of-nowhere, bible-belt New Mexico, and the campus food could due with some improvements. I'm so happy I chose Eastern! The small campus and welcoming atmosphere are perfect if that's what you're looking for!
