Are you one of those people who really can't leave your home for long?  Gas prices getting you down?  There are more than 20 courses via EasternOnline available for the second session.   Online courses at Eastern are great educational experiences where you have the benefit of studying when you can and attending lectures online.  Check out EasternOnline and see if it's for you.

There are also traditional in-person courses held on the campus in Willimantic or at the off-campus site in Groton.   Here are several courses you might enjoy;  some will help with majors and have prerequisites.

Summer Classes


Well, Summer Session A began yesterday, May 23rd, the day after a stirring Commencement Ceremony at the  XL Center.  It may not feel like summer yet but warm weather IS coming.   Over the years, and I have been here at Eastern many summers, I have heard both faculty and students talk about the special dynamic that emerges in summer classes.  There seems to be a "we're all in it together" mentality toward learning that develops.  The classes are smaller and more intimate as a result.  And generally people are very motivated--they signed up for that summer course for a particular reason.  If you are taking a class this summer, I hope that you will really enjoy it.  Let us know how your summer experience is going.

Why Do You Love Eastern?

In attending local functions, it is evident that Eastern Connecticut State University is a beloved college.  Eastern students and alumni are very proud of their school and aren't shy in saying why.  When we asked them why they love Eastern, this is what they said.

"I really like the location of the school.  You can walk five minutes in either direction, and you're close to beautiful scenery and great food."  - Ross (Class of 2012)

"The teachers value the well-being of their students.  You can talk to your advisors and professors." 
- AJ (Class of 2012)

"I love Eastern because the classes are small, so you can form relationships with your professors."
 - Stephanie (Class of 2013)

"There are a lot of reasons why I love Eastern.  The campus is easy to get to know, and there's always something to do whether it's an RA program or campus activity.  I feel like I'm constantly learning."
- Lauren (Class of 2011)

"I love the professors because you get to know them individually.  I like that it's a small university. You can't get lost because you know where your buildings are.  Everything is very simple."
-Jasmine (Class of 2012)

"I love Eastern because it's a very friendly community on campus.  The professors, especially in biology, are very friendly.  My advisor is helping me get where I want to go."
-Bill (Class of 2013)

"Having spent time in a university atmosphere, Eastern is not overwhelming where you'd get lost.  You have a sense of identity and not just being 'another student'."
-Gloria (Class of 2007)

Thank you, everyone, for telling us why you love Eastern.  If you love Eastern too, tell us why in the comment box.  We love hearing from you.
