Overall, I would say I had a good experience at Eastern. As far as Christian universities go, its definitely one of the most liberal ones out there. The professors are great and will definitely take time to connect with you one on one. Living on campus can be a little overbearing, as no smoking, drinking, or even having a member of the opposite sex in your room (except during "visiting hours") is not allowed. But being surrounded by so many other colleges, there is definitely a great party scene not far from campus. I did have a little bit of a rough time as an openly gay student...my car was vandalized at one point and I did encounter some hostile staff/professors. But I found a supportive group of friends and had a great time. A little pricey, too, but definitely worth checking out. (Good athletics for a Christian college, too...I think...)
When P.T. Barnum donated money to Tufts University, he did so on the condition that the school's mascot be named after his beloved elephant. The Tufts University mascot has been the "Jumbos" ever since.
