Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

I loved the school counseling program. Eastern has a unique was of incorporating theology into its classes without being overwhelming. The people I met at Eastern have become life long friends. We help and look out for each other. The curriculum taught at Eastern was very useful for the field. The only complaints I have are the intense schedule. However, I can't really complain too much about it as I signed up to be a full time student. I would have also like classes that addressed sexuality. I suppose they weren't offered because it was an education class. But they would have been useful.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Quiet and serene community with lots of chances to network. Strong sense of community and collaboration between departments. Cons: Some programs are more competitive than others. Some lack academic discipline and could be more organized.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Eastern is a nice small school, but the town of Willimantic is not the friendliest. People have been mugged and had their cell phones stolen.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I start the graduate program on August 28, so while I don't have a broad knowledge of the program yet, I did attend ECSU as an undergraduate for two years. Based on those two years, I completed the rating above. I'm looking forward to starting the graduate program because ECSU has a renowned education program and I'm so excited to begin this phase of my life in working towards a career that I'm passionate about. Apart from the excitement in starting the graduate program, I am a little worried about the tuition fees and the loans I may have to take out, and the interest I will have to pay on them.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

There is not much to say other than my rating. I mean yes they had transportation from building to the next but it is not a direct drop off. You have to go all the way around and that makes you late to you next class.
