Eastern University Reviews
Eastern does a good job with recruiting new students. I applied two days ago and visited the other day and was told that I was accepted! Everyone was really friendly including the students. You can feel the sense of community at this school and it is a perfect size to me. It is also very diverse and for those who say there’s nothing to do on campus, they have many student orgs on campus to get involved in and they’re not far from downtown wayne where you could do much more. College is what you make it and the fun isn’t going to just come to you.
I loved visiting here and staying over the weekend! The girl I roomed with was not much of help. She left me, forgot about me, and forgot to pick me up from events multiple times. I got lost even though it wasn't that big of a campus. The environment was very welcoming, exciting, and fun. I am glad that I had the opportunity to sit in on a few classes too!
As a student in the midst of the college application process, Eastern was a university quick in their response in terms of financial aid. The admissions counselors are extremely helpful and encouraging. However, their amiability is not matched in the financial aid department. A phone call with a financial aid member was overall very cold and left a bad taste in my mouth. Though this encounter is not reflective of the university as a whole, it unfortunately has an effect on the recruitment of students. I do think the university has a fantastic honors college department. The curriculum is very enticing.
