Eastern University Reviews
Eastern University is the epitome of what a Christian University should look and be like. With an emphasis on service to others, the close-knit community that is created by the students (who are quite literally— from all parts of the world) and faculty members was always something that stood out to me, even prior to starting my academic journey here. As a Freshman, I can hands-down say that have never felt more at home elsewhere than I do at Eastern. The Professors and academic programs are phenomenal. Now, of course no College is perfect; Eastern has it’s flaws: From the sub-par food & dining services, lack of a Football team, to other minor inconveniences, strict drinking policies, etc. However, I can definitely tell you from a student’s perspective, that Eastern is a fantastic University for not only Christians, but for ALL students. The academics, professors, student life, campus and surrounding area are quite unique from other colleges in the greater Philadelphia region.
I like Eastern University very much. It's a really good university for many reasons. One reason is the professors here are very caring and really want you to succeed. They would take time out of there day to help you if you are struggling. Another reason this university is a good university is the students here are so caring and kind. They actually want to know how you are and they are really intrigued about your life. Somethings I would change about the university is the food. I just believe that the food could be better and healthier. Another thing I would change is the dorms. Most of the dorms are nice, but it needs to be more spacious and renovated.
I like the welcoming atmosphere and how friendly everyone was. The professors were always very friendly and kind. The students were not upset if they had to stop for 4 seconds to give me directions somewhere. The entire campus was absolutely beautiful and very interactive and fun!
