The people here are incredibly judgmental even though most of them are christian. It's a really tiny school so if you do anything remotely "unholy", people will definitely be talking about you. Things get around fast and its basically impossible to avoid drama. I honestly think this college is worse than high school. I would advise anyone looking into this college to save their money and find a better school. The academics are good but the atmosphere of the campus ruins everything.

There are many majors to choose from at Eastern Nazarene. And I have been doing great with my education and feel very satisfied with the education I am receiving at this college. All the professors I have had have been out in the field I would like to work in so they are bringing their own experience to class as well as teaching by the books, they are also eager to provide tips to students to help with our experience.

The facilities on campus are great the library is close and welcoming also the public library it great to go to as well. There is an athletic center on campus for students to take advantage of! There are always many campus activities going on so students have many choices to make and are rarely bored.

Quincy is a pretty big town and not too far of a commute to Boston which is a big city with many things to do. Although Quincy also has a lot to offer if students don't want to travel outside of the city.

Most of the professors I have had are great with the material they teach and the students are understanding what is being taught so that great but some teachers I feel are being kept on the staff because they are alumni and maybe the administration feels bad about getting rid of them or even because the professors have been with the school for so long. I am not saying they are bad teachers I just think they could use an update in their own material and how to teach to modern day students.

The cafeteria is hit or miss. There are plenty of options, but it is not uncommon to find that you're eating rotten food. I've found bugs in the lettuce on the salad bar, rotten meat, moldy cheese, and, on one occasion, a worm in my soup.
These are probably common problems anywhere, but I am skeptical of the practices of the kitchen staff. I once watched the director of food services retrieve a can of ketchup from a kitchen trash can and scrape the remnants out to be served. I have not trusted the cafeteria since.
The dugout is run by the same company (Pioneer Caterers), but is a much better option... If you have the money. Burgers, salads, breakfast sandwiches.. they have it all, and the manager is one of the most courteous, nice people at the college.
Unless things have changed this year, they had very few options for meals in the dugout on the meal plan. The school requires you to have a meal plan too unless you have a medical problem that you can PROVE. It is very difficult to do this. Being grossed out by the bugs and mold is not a good enough reason.

The school prides itself on having a diverse student body. There are a few races represented, and the school has an ALANA club for minorities, but they do not seem to openly support LGBT and non-Christian students.

Health & Safety:
I've never felt safer on a college campus than I felt at ENC. Security is constantly around, and they use a lot of graduates on security, so they are familiar faces with a good knowledge of the campus.
There's very little crime. The only problem I can think of is non-students who sneak in with students to play basketball, but security is pretty good about kicking them out. I wish the school would do something about them, though, because they always come back and security can only make them leave.
That would be my only complaint.

There is not a lot of support for varsity teams outside of varsity players and their friends. Pretty poor performances are a commonplace, which is sad considering our division iii status.
Rumor has it that the school may be dropped from NCAA altogether in the coming years.

Party at your own risk. There is a strict no drinking policy, and the school looks down on clubs and bars even if you're not drinking. Nazarenes are historically not allowed to dance.

The Campus Police are always driving around campus and they have a non tolerance policy for violence.

You are able to have a car and if not applicable the Bat Bus runs through the campus at all different times. There is also a bicycle rack. And a drop off pick up location is in a designated place.

I can always find parking, it doesn't cost anything to park, I have never received a ticket or heard of anyone who has.

I like the curriculum the school offers. The teachers are not laid back like other professors.

The local atmosphere in Eastern Nazarene College is quite and rural town.

the Public transportation system is really good the school itself is no more than 6 minutes away form the train station.

It depends on the program, but they are generally academically rigorous.

I guess I can give my school a good grade for this area. I have pretty informative classes and prepared and dedicated professors. They are easy to get in contact with. They offer internships but I am just focusing on getting good grades right now. I will have a full work load next semester. But the advising sessions are pretty awful.

There is no Greek ilfe at my school. But there are some clubs like the ASL club and the Drama Club.

I would give diversity at ENC a C because the numbers say that it is the most diverse Christian College there is in America. But I am still a minority when it comes to my race (African-American) and my Sexual Orientation. There are black and Latinos in my school but we are obviously the minority. And it frustrates me that we are separated. The only diverse group there is on campus is the athletic groups due to the nature of college recruitment. I also identify as a Black, Bisexual woman and that makes things even more difficult for me. Especially since ENC is a Christian college.

It's very boring. You can only hang with opposite sex in designated areas. Because of the many rules at ENC, things become very dull. But because of the wonderful friends I've made at ENC, I do tend to enjoy myself.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
