To us, Eastern is a second home, one that has been our headquarters during these beginning years of our adult lives.

We have all made several friends here, we have grown to enjoy being here and choosing Eastern, and we sincerely hope that you will do the same.

We know that college can be scary for anyone, and it can be very tough for you to adapt and adjust to new surroundings, but fully immersing yourself into new activities can definitely help with the adjustment and make your experience at Eastern a better and fun-filled one.

As the first week of classes begins, we wish everyone a great year, especially those of you who are new to Eastern.

Remember to put your best foot forward, excel as best as you can in your studies, get to know Eastern as a whole and take some time to relax. The time goes by incredibly fast, but we hope that you will see just how great Eastern can be for everyone.

Have a fantastic year, Panthers!
