At Edinboro University you will meet great professors and awesome students as you come in for your first year. Though as you are meeting the greats and the awesomes, you will run into professors that doesn't care as much and students who are downright crazy. I say professors who doesn't care as much because as you come to college for the first time, you will notice that there are professors that teach and professors that talks and very few that can do both. Some professors talk during class that has nothing to do with lecture and there are professors that will teach you what the material that deals with the lecture. With crazy students, you never know who is going to catchfish you later on down the line. Nonetheless over all college is an amazing appearance just due to the knowledge you are gaining and the new amazing people coming into your life. Good luck with your college search!
Greek life at Edinboro is huge! It is a main focus on campus since there are 5 fraternities and 6 sororities. There are always Greek life events going on around campus, such as philanthropy events, fundraisers, charity, and community service projects. I believe that the Greek life at Edinboro is a huge aspect. Non-Greek life members may think of it as the stereotypical movie 'Greek life', but to me it is so much more than that. Since I am apart of the Greek life on campus, I have been given so many extra opportunities that I may have never gotten if I was not in Greek life. Greek life opens so many doors for individuals to show their different strengths, leadership skills, life skills, and so much more.
Edinboro University is my third and final college that I have attended. It is better in everyway than the first schools I attended. The price is unbeatable0 ,especially for PA students. Plus, it's a great commuter school. The teachers and advisors here really care and go above and beyond, at least in my department (geosciences). There is always something going on free to students. They even have a movie theatre on campus! The cons are that Edinboro is in the snow belt and receives 150 inches of snow each year on average. Also, there is not enough parking near the buildings. Overall, I would recommend Edinboro University.
