    College Freshman:The Chemical Engineering group of Tech is one of the smaller engineering groups so the professors are able to work closely with us. Our academic advisers keep up with our grades and immediately contact us if there is a problem with our grades or attendance. Our advisers also keep a flow chart where we can check off the classes that are need to get our degree.

I love Eastern and its town; the town comes together as a whole to support the University and its events. All in all, I would choose to attend Eastern time and time again.

    College Sophomore:I love most of my professors, some not so much, but that's just how it goes. The workload last semester was so heavy, I was reading about two books a week for two of my classes. It was difficult but very rewarding by the end.
