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!
Review Edinboro University
I love the faculty in the classes I attend. They usually have a great sense of humor and genuinely care that you learn something constructive. It's rare that I would ever dread going to class, unless one seems to be particularly monotone.

The sprawling campus is beautiful!

The main drawbacks is of the following: they don't salt in the winter (instead they use grit), and their food could use a lot of work.
Edinboro University is a great choice if you are looking for something that is acts as a home away from home. The professors are easy going and are always willing to help you out in any way that they can. The environment is very relaxing, especially being that Edinboro itself is a college oriented town. There's so much to discover here, so you might as well do it!
