I could not have picked a better college.
This school, while undeniably small, presents its students with huge opportunities to advance and excel in their education. I have yet to take a class with a professor who does not know my name within the first two weeks of school. The class sizes are small, anywhere from 5-35 students, which allows for a very personalized classroom experience. You are not just a "number" to your professor like you would be at a bigger school, and this leads you to have great relationships with your professors and peers alike.
In addition, this college has truly allowed me to broaden my horizons more than I ever thought possible. When I came here, I was incredibly shy, but my professors and peers encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone. This led me to join various organizations, take challenging classes, and even go to London for a study abroad trip.
This school is amazing and has offered me endless opportunities. I would not hesitate to recommend it!

Full of fat and sloppy people who could care less about those around them. Extremely unwelcoming and small-minded. Horrible food and wifi is basically nonexistent. Very diverse to regards about race. Greek life is a nightmare/joke. They also say they don't haze, but my experiences prove otherwise. Pretty campus from an outsiders viewpoint, but the people ruin it/turn it ugly.
Eureka is definitely unique. I personally love the small town feel of campus. I also really love the balance between the old and new architecture. You feel the history but also the potential to make history there. I think it's ready for a few more updates though. The staff is unbelievably kind and patient. The Opportunities are endless. I'm so excited to go.
