Recently recognized in the top 3 of 25 most Beautiful Christian Universities, Eastern University is revered as a top Christian University in PA with a safe, welcoming community of students, faculty and staff. EU’s main campus offers multiple residence halls and academic buildings with amenities to accommodate its approximately 1,700 undergraduate students.
While Eastern’s diverse student body regularly utilizes a full arsenal of residence life options, it is worthwhile to note the compliment of academic resources for EU students including the historic Warner Library adjacent to the Howard Harold Center, the fully-renovated McInnis Learning Center, Workman Hall for Music Majors, Andrews Hall and Bradstreet Observatory and Planetarium. Warner Library provides students plenty of study space, access to 65,000 periodical titles in paper and electronic format, 870,000+ microform items, and over 60,000 full text e-journals, including the most current and popular academic journals and resources. While students can access Eastern’s professors’ 360 publications and 280 articles in Warner, most students would much rather interact in person with our prestigious but accessible faculty. A 13:1 student-to-professor ratio means plenty of personal attention and mentoring for students within the College of Arts and Sciences.
