I like the involvement and dedication of staff and faculty members in the lives of the students. There is a strong support system at Eastern Illinois, both among students and administration.
There can sometimes be a lack of communication between departments at the school. In some instances, it very quickly becomes the student's duty to check-in, request status updates, etc.
I like that the teachers are very supportive, you can go to them with your questions and they are willing to sit down with you and talk to you about the questions.
The food wasn’t always good.
It was a smaller school environment, so the smaller classes were great for learning - you never got lost in the swarm of students. It was also nice being in a smaller town for similar reasons - apartments are on the cheaper side compared to the surrounding cities. This does mean that there isn't always a lot to do in town, but you can always travel about an hour to the other cities for more activities :)
Some of the buildings could use updating - however, this isn't entirely the school's fault, as they've been fighting with funding issues from the state.
