My professors is what makes this university worth it. I am in the art program, and I am very happy with my education. Dorms are overly expensive, but clean. I've never felt in danger on campus, and I really do like the local area, its just small/not much to do. The locals here however are lovely, and I enjoy the small businesses! Campus food is terrible, and student life could be better if students were willing to participate more.

I am currently a sophomore student-athlete at Edinboro University where I am a business major with a concentration in Marketing. Edinboro University has been home to me for two years and I love it. It is a very cute town with a friendly atmosphere and a charming town.
Edinboro is a smaller school in terms of class size, which helps immensely with one-on-one feedback from professors. The campus is very inviting and holds a lot of opportunities for students to get involved and have fun. Both the faculty and staff are helpful resources who want nothing other than to see the students succeed.
I made a great choice by coming here, I hope you will too!
Professors and students on this campus can get to know each other on a first name basis which helps you build a relationship with them. Enrollment into classes is kept at a small cap which also makes it easier for students to reach out for help and for professors to possibly reach out to you when they see you are struggling. There's a dedicated career development center that assists you with starting and building your professional profile by editing resumes, setting up professional profiles on some platforms and distribute internship and job opportunities. This really helped me get my foot into the professional world. Annual career fairs are also organized that are advertised to students before hand so you have adequate time to research the companies.
