One reason I chose to attend EIU was due to the friendly faculty at the school. They are willing to help you whenever you ask. I chose EIU because their KSS program has an amazing reputation and offers a variety of different connections that can be made. The school is close enough to my hometown in case of any situation where I need to get back home quickly. The campus at EIU is nice because it is easy to navigate. The buildings are close together so it is hard to be late to class. The campus also has many activities on the courtyard and quad during the warmer months. One of my favorite memories while being at EIU was getting straight A’s my first semester. I enjoyed being part of a Sport Management field trip this past year, and placing with my team in the intramural basketball tournament.
