OUE is mostly white and black students. I think there's maybe one or two who are Asian and/or Hispanic. I think it's still a lot like high school. There are cliques everywhere; some are acceptive, some not so much.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
For what I'm paying, I think I'm getting a decent education. I have a scholarship that covers most of my tuition, so I can't complain too much. I've never really had too much of a problem with financial aid, but I know many students who have.

Online classes at OUE are your typical online classes. You have online quizzes, submit everything online, and of course discussion boards. In my opinion, they're convenient for fulfilling degree requirements, but I don't really learn anything.

Because OUE is such a small school, it doesn't offer much. We have 14 bachelor degree programs, all which students are supposed to be able to complete at OUE, but usually this isn't the case. There are no dorms, so there's really no campus life or social scene on the campus itself. We have a gym and a basketball court, but that's about it. OUE doesn't offer too much "unique" opportunities, either. About the only thing "unique" it offers is an internship when during your last semester, but many schools offer that.

Ohio University Eastern wasn't my first choice for school. I started at Ohio State but because of my residency location, things didn't work out. I moved back home a week later not knowing if I'd find a school to go to, let alone start on time. Of the local colleges and universities, OUE wouldn't be my first choice. But because of tuition costs, OUE was all I could afford. I enrolled on the first day of classes and was, fortunately, able to attend my classes that same day.
I left Ohio State because I lived on one side of campus and my classes were on the opposite side. With 15 minutes between classes, numerous construction zones, and a roughly 3-square-mile campus, this was intimidating to me as a freshman. So I love the fact that OUE is only two buildings. I also love that my class sizes are so small. It's easier to get a professor's attention if I need help, and lab's aren't too packed.
What I don't like about OUE is our course schedule. It's never the same every semester or year, so it makes it hard to plan ahead. Another problem with scheduling at OUE is that a lot of the classes I need are only offered once a year and usually at the same time as another class I need. The only way around this is to either go to another OU regional campus (the closest being 90 minutes away) or take online classes (if they're offered online).
I love being at OUE because it's small and close to home. I get to stay at home, rent free, and continue to work. But if scheduling becomes too much of a headache, I'm afraid I'll have to transfer to another school in hopes of graduating on time.

The athletic facility is the best thing on campus. It is practically new, with machines, a court, all the jazz you'd expect of a gym (no pool) and they offer classes for aerobics, yoga, etc. The library is small, doesn't really have a large selection of materials, classrooms are bare- sort of reminds me of a white walled mental institution- there is no student center and barely any clubs or student activities.

The academic experience here is horrible! I transferred in from a University in Pittsburgh when the tuition was raised making it unrealistic for me to stay and I could tell within the first week of classes at OUE that I had transferred to a University with low academic challenges and standards. Since being a student at this university I have been left unchallenged academically, found little to motivation of their part to make necessary changes to make this a more challenging and beneficial academia facility and found myself becoming unconcerned with my effort because I knew I could produce high level grades without doing even minimal level work. It disgust me to see the poor quality of academics here and that I have to pay for it. Because of their horrible academics, poor administrators, employees lacking knowledge enabling them to effectively do their jobs and my rising depression at being here, I am making the decision to transfer before things get worse.

There is no alumni network for students at the eastern branch, there is no career center unless your willing for drive two and half hours to main campus and most students will not get a job in the local area upon graduation due to poor major options and lack of actual employment opportunities in the area.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The tuition is reasonable for the quality of education you are receiving (which is not high standard- I call it a marginally higher level high school). There is a lack in degree choices and low quality professors- however there are some gems professors as well, you just have to find them. There are little to no financial aid available unless you are a pell recipient and almost always expect them to mess you tuition and aid up at least once a year if you are lucky.

Not Very Flexible – So far the courses are offered one time and that is what I must register for. Many of my classes conflict or are spread apart. This makes it difficult for me because I live an hour away with three school-aged children.

From what I have seen, the resources are good. There are plenty of computers and the network was reliable.
College Junior 2012-07-12T00:13:24Z
There are many resources on campus such as the library, computers, and help labs. There is also a gym on campus along with a cafeteria. The advisors are readily available and willing to help whenever the need arises.

Academic Flexibility – I have not had any issues with class schedules. I am a non-traditional student and can only attend evening classes and so far I have not had any problems finding evening classes that will fulfill my requirements towards my major.

OUE - a Great Choice! I have been absolutely pleased with my choice to attend OUE. I find the faculty and staff to be welcoming and accommodating in all circumstances . The classes have all been engaging and I feel I am getting a great education.

Young Students – I would say that most of the students I encountered were tradtional, young, fresh-out-of high school students. Many that I met had come to OUE directly from the local area high school. Alot of the students seem to have grown up with their fellow students. Ethnicity seemed to consist of mainly caucasians, which can make other races feel uncomfortable, such as myself being a Pakistani-American.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Not So Great – At first glance it seems the tuition at Ohio University Eastern is reasonable onsidering you'll be receiving a degree from an accredited University. However, I did not get much guidance from any of the concelors, including the financial aid department. I do not think that the tuition students are paying at OUE is worth it. The professors are never eager to answer students' questions; they seem more interested in discussing their personal lives then the actual topic being learned. Not to mention their is very little when it comes to food in this school. The "cafeteria" consists of re-heated junk that is over-priced. I did receive financial aid, but it was not enough. I have had to take a quarter off because I will have to pay for an entire past quarter. Unless I can get a scholorship, I won't be able to return to school. This is very sad considering for most of my schooling I have had a 4.0 GPA.

Low Tuition and Good Scholarhips – The tuition at OUE is rather low compared to many universities, and the scholarship opportunities are adequate. In fact, OUE recently lowered there tuition.

Outstanding Computer Labs and Wifi – The campus has three computer labs: one in the library and two on the second floor. The computer lab in the library has both MAC and PCs. The PCs are equipped with Windows 7. All of the computers are connected to a readily accessible printer. Also, the computers are connected to a fast computer network. Finally, there is campus wide Wifi that is quite fast. In fact, I have pushed the Wifi network by successfully watching a show on Hulu in HD.

Apathetic High-School Graduates – The majority of the students on the campus are apathetic in their studies. Although the professors and administration does an excellent job, the majority of the students I have met do not do their part. There are some serious students, but among the majority there is a general lazy attitude. The students do come to class very regularly, but they are not completely dedicated to their work. There are a few exceptions to this general group though. A few serious high-school to college students, and the adult students are serious in their work.

The only difficulty I have had with classes/curriculum has been in scheduling classes. For many classes there is usually one class of the type being taught in a quarter. Also, for science classes there is only one lab available for a given science class. This combination makes scheduling classes quite limiting.

Personal Teachers, Personal Classes – Have you ever wondered what is the big deal with small classes? Schools that usually have small classes typically boast about them. Until I came to Ohio University Eastern, I never realized how valuable the small class atmosphere is. In a small class it feels like all of the students are on a journey to learn the most from the class. All of the students can interact with one another, and with the professors. The professors don't send in lab assistants to teach the classes, but teach us themselves.

Dedicated Teachers Leads to Success – As I stated previously, the professors at the Eastern campus are very interested in the success of the students. For example, in Calculus I, I can go and talk directly one to one with the professor. The professor holds a PhD and several patents to circuit designs. He is very knowledgeable on the subject of math, and I received an A in his class last quarter. My chemistry teacher is the same way. My academic advisor knows be by name, and teachers that I have had previously greet me by name in the halls. The teacher-student connection is so close, that as a Freshman, I have the opportunity to be a part-time lab assistant in the chemistry classes. In the summer quarter, I will become a full-time chemistry lab assistant. For a freshman, Ohio University--Eastern Campus has been a flawless experience.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
